The North Face Grand Traverse
March 28, 2020 @ 8:00 am - March 29, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
An extraordinary Colorado backcountry route! The Grand Traverse is a point-to-point ski race from Crested Butte to Aspen. Racers travel 40 miles across the Elk Mountain range, climbing over 6,800 vertical feet. To ensure competitor safety, racers must have a partner, carry mandatory gear, and begin the race at midnight when avalanche hazard is decreased.
