Dynafit Rise & Shine Rando Series (3 of 4)

Tuesday, January 06, 2015

Join us Tuesday mornings for a 4-part series of up-hill challenges

Challenge yourself to all four or pick and choose which morning works the best for you and your workout schedule. Starting in the Base Area 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!

Course Description

The skin will start in the Base Area and competitors will make their way up Sundance through Lynx Lane past the south side of the Black Mountain Lodge and up Grizzly Road to the top of the Pallavicini Chairlift and across to the West Wall Saddle. Here you will transition and ski down the West Wall into Dercum’s Gulch and down past the south side of the Black Mountain lodge again, down Wrangler to the bottom of the Lenawee Chairlift. Here you will transition and skin up the Lenawee lift line to Lenawee Chairlift Tower 3 where you will cut west through the trees past the bottom of West Gully through the Gentry trees back on to Dercum’s Gulch. Continue skinning up Dercum’s to Humbug on up to the top of the Montezuma Chairlift to a boot pack along the ridgeline past the Montezuma Weather Station down into Snow Plume Refuge for the finish.

This course has approximately 2,400 vertical feet of elevation gain.
