Alpenglow Ascents Rando Series (3 of 3)
Friday, April 25, 2014
Join us Friday afternoons for a 3-part series of up-hill and down-hill challenges
Come to Arapahoe Basin for a beautiful afternoon of skinning with our three-part randonee spring-time series. This NEW series will start and finish in the Base Area while summiting near 12,472'!
This event is much like our Rise n Shine series, except it’s in the afternoon. Perfect for the serious rando racers that are training for The Traverse or the Power of Four, or people who just want to get a solid skin in after work. We’ll have prizes for the top 3 male and female winners in each division, and we usually throw some fun random prizes in (for example: a prize for the person who comes in 23rd or a random prize “hidden” on the course). It’s a great time to hang out with your friends who participate in uphill travel, whether they be skiers or splitboarders, recreational athletes or elites. Everyone’s welcome at Alpenglow Ascents!
Don't forget to celebrate your skinning success in the new 6th Alley Bar after you finish!
Check in: Starting at 3:30 p.m. on the first floor of the a-frame
Start: 4:30 p.m.
Cost: $20 for race only, $30 for race, post race appetizer buffet, and one beverage from the 6th Alley Bar and Grill
Divisions: male and female
New for Alpenglow Ascents:
Try It Course:
This course has one transition with less elevation gain and distance. Perfect for the recreational uphill traveler that wants to come out on the mountain for a fun afternoon, or for the first-timer who has heard their friends, family, and neighbors talk about uphill travel and wants to give it a go.
This course will have multiple transitions and significant elevation gain throughout the mountain for the seasoned uphill traveler or the person that wants a bigger challenge.
We have some fun things planned for the courses this spring! We will switch it up every week to keep it interesting for our Friday afternoon series!
