Test your endurance and your uphill skills in a 12-hour event. SSEF, Ogden Skimo, and Snowbasin have partnered to offer this inaugural event. Do it by yourself or gather a team of up to 4. There is a 12-hour event or a 6-hour event.
This event consists of individuals and teams in two main categories, 12 Hours and 6 Hours. The 12 Hour category includes Solo, Duo, and Quad person options; the 6 Hour event includes Solo and Duo team options. The goal is to achieve as many laps as possible in each category. Each lap is approximately 2,200 Vertical Feet in gain and 2.2 Miles.
For reference, 13 laps are approximately the same as summiting Mount Everest, 29,029 Feet! So, Pick Your Peak as a target and go for it!
Proceeds from this event will be used to further enhance and offer uphill access at Snowbasin Resort and to support the Snowbasin Sport Education Foundation, a 503(c) Non-Profit.
