This week, all classes will race the same course. Registration and the start line will be at Base Village in Snowmass Village. From the start line, the race will head uphill under the Elk Camp Gondola and up the work road until connecting to the bottom of the Verde Trail single track. Ride Verde all the way up to the intersection with the Elk Camp Work Road. (PLEASE NOTE: Verde is a downhill-only trail. There will be ABSOLUTELY no pre-riding this section of the course at any time! We are only allowed to ride up Verde on race night at 6pm. Please spread the word!)
At the top of Verde, riders will take a left on the work road for a short distance and then head straight into the Government trail. Ride Government all the way to Buttermilk and Tiehack. When the trail comes out on the pavement continue downhill on the road for about 200 yards. Just before the Tiehack bridge, take a hard right onto a downhill section of trail passing under the bridge. At the bottom of the double track road, take a hard left onto the Maroon Creek Trail. Race along this sweet riverside trail until crossing under the Highway 82 Maroon Creek Bridge. You’ll then have a short punchy climb up a dirt and gravel road to the finish line next to the golf course.
