Best of both worlds. Half path/Half alpine mountain trail. The mountain goats will compete on equal footing with the road runners!
Course will be a loop starting/finishing in the heart of Base Village, Snowmass Village. Start this year will ramain at the transit center exit on Snowmelt Rd. The course will follow scenic Brush Creek/Village Way and Owl Creek paths to the beautiful Tom Blake Trail (a mostly single track alpine mountain trail with a shallow stream crossing). Runners will then proceed down the Vista Trail, past the midstation of the gondola, finishing over the ski bridge into Base Village. Runners will be rewarded for overcoming strenuous climbs and steep descents at altitude with spectacular views from far above the Town of Snowmass Village.
