The 2013 San Juans Rando has been cancelled. For an alternate skirace on this date, we highly recommend Cody's Challenge in Steamboat.
We are already planning on bringing the San Juan event back in '14 to a different location in the South West. We regret the last-minute cancellation.

Thanks to all that came out for another COSMIC powder day and we'll see you next year.
The Five Peaks presented by CAMP has new courses for the 2013 edition. The "long" course is 7,500' and will cover the shoulder of Peak 10 and the summits of Peaks 9,8,7 and 6. The Peak 6 portion of the course is a significant addition and insures all but the final mile of skiing is 100% on un-groomed terrain. The "short" course is 5,000' and includes the summits of Peaks 9, 8 and 7.
For complete info, course maps and to enter go to The Five Peaks.com. Race day is Saturday, March 23rd.

Find a fast partner and we'll see you in Aspen and Breck.

Thank you to all that came out to race on a memorable weekend in Durango and Wolf Creek. Friday Night Lights at Chapman Hill featured a technical two-climb lap with a boot back and a GS descent. Scott Simmons raced to the men's win in 27:30, Janelle Smiley the women's in 29:50.
The next morning at Wolf Creek racers found 21" of powder to make the descents truly memorable. Wolf Creek patrol made the event possible by opening up terrain only for racers. Janelle Smiley and Marshal Thompson took the honors. Results for both races are attached here.
Next up is a Western Slope weekend of racing on Jan. 12th at Sunlight Mt. and the 13th at Powderhorn. We look forward to seeing you there.
