Event Description

This unique mountain bike race combines the four ski areas of Aspen/Snowmass (Snowmass, Buttermilk, Aspen Highlands and Aspen Mountain) into one amazing mountain bike race. The diversity of the terrain and tackling our four distinct mountains will certainly place this first year event in a unique category. The field consists of solo racers and relay teams (of two or four) from the avid bike community that exists in Aspen/Snowmass, Colorado and beyond. Racers will start at the base of Snowmass and end at the Sundeck atop Aspen Mountain (with a brief detour in between). With 11,000' vertical gain, 9,000' vertical drop over 33 miles on top rated single track, demanding double track ascents and coverage over four mountains this race will challenge even the fittest riders. Experience the Power of Four!
