34th Annual Enduro & Après Party
Wed, Apr 12
The Arapahoe Basin Enduro is a leg-burning, on-mountain event for a good cause.
Join your friends and family on April 12, 2023 at Arapahoe Basin for the 34th Annual Enduro, a fundraiser and 10-hour ski-a-thon on the Pali Lift to benefit a local resident near and dear to A-Basin's heart. All participants will receive a free beer and enjoy a chef-prepared dinner at the end of the day. The 2023 beneficiary will be announced, soon.
ENTRY FEE: $150 per 2-person team. Max 35 teams. The fee includes a t-shirt, poster, dinner, a beer or beverage, and bragging rights for each of the two team members. Does NOT include lift access. Must have a valid pass or lift ticket for April 12.
Skiing for 10 hours not your thing? Join us for dinner and the Best Silent Auction in Summit County.
This Year's Enduro Recipient is Tim Finnigan
Long-time Summit County resident and 37-year A-Basin employee Tim Finnigan was diagnosed with lymph node cancer of the throat in June 2017. Tim went through extensive radiation treatment at Shaw Cancer Center this and is his initial treatment was successful, and he is now cancer-free. After cancer Tim has continued to deal with medical complications. As a member of our community we want to continue to support Tim not only as an employee at Arapahoe Basin but as long time member of Summit County.
35 teams of two take laps up the Pallavicini Lift and ski or ride down the mountain on designated lines from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., usually without stopping. Check-in starts at 6:00 a.m. in the Guest Services building, with a mandatory participant meeting at 6:30 a.m. in the plaza at the goats statue.
The ski day is followed by a dinner and auction--all proceeds go to the event's beneficiary. This is not meant to be a race or competition, and there is no official winner. Do what you can, have fun, and feel free to embellish your stories in the 6th Alley!
The history and importance of the Enduro
Listen to the first episode of our podcast, Good Morning Arapahoe Basin, to learn all about the cultural significance of this event. Featuring our COO, Alan Henceroth.
There is no formal route that you must follow. Each group is assigned a different run to start their day on, and tradition dictates that you then you work your way through the route list according to the map. (The idea is to not ski or ride the same run over and over.)
