The Enduro Light

We know that not everyone is ready to ski for 10 hours on the Pali, and we want as many of Dave’s friends and family, and community members to get on the mountain and get involved in this fundraiser. We devised the Enduro Light – a non-competitive, less intense ski tour of Arapahoe Basin. We’ve brought you a course where you can find hidden secrets, learn fun facts and discover our trails at your own pace. Feel the excitement of the Pali laps, then escape into the sunshine of Montezuma Bowl. Surf down Slalom Slope to the sunny deck at Black Mountain Lodge and soak in the incredible views of the East Wall. Check off each designated site on your “passport” and be entered into the Enduro Light prize drawing at the end of the day.

The entry fee is $100 per team of 2 and includes the 2016 Enduro Poster, dinner, a beer, the Après Party in the A-frame, and bragging rights for being part of the first Enduro Light! Enduro Light has unlimited openings for participation! Come on out for a fun day on the mountain, and support the Repsher family.

Registration and check in will be in the A-Frame on the first floor starting at 8:00 a.m.
