Join us for a six-part series of uphill challenges on Tuesday mornings in November, December, and January. Register for all six and save, or pick and choose which morning works best for you. Starting in Mountain Goat Plaza at 10,780’ and finishing near the Summit at 12,474’, with twists and turns along the way, the early morning Rise and Shine Rando Races are a fun and challenging way to start your day!

  • Race start: 7:00 a.m. in Mountain Goat Plaza 
  • Check-in begins at 6:00 a.m. in the Rental Shop 

Course Description 

Racers will skin up High Noon to Black Mountain Lodge, get checked off by an Arapahoe Basin Employee, and then transition/remove skins and head down Ramrod to the plaza. Rinse, repeat! This event will be timed for an hour; we will not keep track of exact time just the laps of the competitors. A-Basin staff will be marking you as you pass the bottom. Whomever has the most checks wins!

At 8:00 a.m., we will start to hold racers at Black Mountain Lodge as you cannot start a new lap after that time. The three men and three women with the most laps in the shortest amount of time will win prizes.

Make the most out of the early season and get some solid training in with plenty of transitions and downhill! 

New for 2019

Arapahoe Basin strongly recommends the use of helmets that meet either the ASTM F2040 or CEN 1077 rating. Helmets must fit properly and be worn according to manufacturer’s recommendations when in use.
