The Enduro Light
We know that not everyone is ready to ski for 10 hours on the Pali, so we devised the Enduro Light – a non-competitive, less intense ski tour of Arapahoe Basin. We’ve brought you a course where you can find hidden secrets, learn fun facts and discover our trails at your own pace. Feel the excitement of the Pali laps, then escape into the sunshine of Montezuma Bowl. Surf down Slalom Slope to the sunny deck at Black Mountain Lodge and soak in the incredible views of the East Wall. Check off each designated site on your “passport” and be entered into the Enduro Light prize drawing at the end of the day. The Enduro Light occurs during normal lift hours, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The entry fee is $100 per team of two and includes the 2018 Enduro poster, dinner, a beer or beverage, and a special drawing for those who get to all the stops on their Enduro Light passports.
Registration for the Enduro Light will begin at 8:00 a.m. on March 11, 2018.
