The Esplanade Epic

I’ve been trying to keep it under wraps until it was 100%, and I just got confirmation that Golden Alpine Holidays will be hosting a race in the Esplanade range on April 10th(the weekend after the Dogtooth Dash).  It sounds like the “Epic”  will take over where the Spearhead left off as a long traverse style course, total backcountry, flight in and out with 1 night accom and dinner at one of 3 different backcountry lodges included in the 200 dollar race fee.  I’m stoked that John is stepping up to the plate, it should be a classic.

They’re in the process of getting info up on the website but, if you want more info or would like to register call 1-888-344-6424

  3. Sounds amazing…except I won’t be here for that 😦

    But you guys have to skin to and from the start/finish lines 🙂

    This kind of an event can definitely put our sport on the bigger map here in North America.

    Golden seems to be a golden place with lots of golden people keen for a golden sport of skimo racing.

  4. 2 spots left in the elite…
