Grand Traverse

3/27/2020 to 3/29/2020

The Grand Traverse is a backcountry ski race from Crested Butte to Aspen, Colorado. This 40-mile backcountry ski race spans an old mail route from the 1880's that connects the towns of Aspen and Crested Butte. The race begins at midnight in Crested Butte and climbs more than 7,800 vertical feet before the extreme endurance event comes to an end in Aspen. In order to maintain safety, the race is done in teams of two and all racers must have the mandatory gear in order to compete. The Elk Mountain Grand Traverse has been a staple event since 1998 and truly tests athlete’s mental and physical toughness.
