Summer Trail Run #3
Sun, Aug 18
Join us for a two-part series of uphill challenges on Sunday mornings in July. Races begin in Mountain Goat Plaza at 10,780’ with twists and turns along the way; races will finish in the base area. The trail runs at A-Basin are a challenging way to start your Sunday!
The course begins at 10,780' ft, starting at the base of Arapahoe Basin, Mountain Goat Plaza, head up to the High Noon parking lot, then to last chance. You will cross highway 6, get on the A-Basin summer road. You will follow the summer road up to Black Mountain Lodge. From Black Mountain Lodge you can see the views of the East Wall - some of the coolest terrain at Arapahoe Basin. You will then continue on it to the saddle, crossing over to the top of Montezuma Lift, head out the Lenawee trail. From this view point you can see all the way back into the old town of Montezuma and all the high peaks that surround Arapahoe Basin, taking world class views, as you summit Little Lenawee peak. At the summit you will turn around, head back down. You will head across and hit the Summer road, stride back down. Once you see Black Mountain lodge again you will take a right onto world-class singletrack, which is the Argentine North Fork trail, taking cover in the beautiful shaded forest, the Argentine singletrack twists & turns, an adventure in itself, taking you all the way to the bottom for a finish in Mountain Goat Plaza, where there will be live music and food for all.
