Register Online Now!!

The Dogtooth Dash just got a hell of a lot bigger!!! For our fifth year we’ve teamed up with Goretex and will be hosting the Continental Championships, should be the biggest event yet!

The dates for this years race are March 16th & 17th. Modeled after the popular European multi day events, our 2013 race will offer multiple race formats and courses for a festival style weekend of racing. Proudly brought to you by the Golden Skimountaineering team in partnership with Goretex and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.

Saturday

The North American Open Dogtooth Dash is still our Canadian Championship race with:

  • 3 different course lengths; Rec(2000 ft), Enduro(4000 ft) and Elite (6000 ft)
  • Additional ways to win; Heavy Metal, Poker Run, Split board, Masters and Juniors.
  • 65 $ entry fee for 2 days racing and lift tickets

Schedule

  • 0800 -Last minute race registration/Race package pick up at the Gondola base
  • 0930- Racer Meeting
  • 1100- Gearcheck at Gondola top
  • 1200- Race starts
  • 1530- Last racers expected to finish

Tentative Course Maps

The Elite course has approximately 6000 ft of vertical climbing and descending utilizes all 4 of our mtn bowls, 3 pks and tonnes of technical terrain in between. This course is the real deal for folks wanting a REAL ski-mountaineering experience. The middle distance Enduro course was well recieved last year and will remain with approximately 4000 ft of vertical gain and loss. The Enduro course is a great option for racers looking to step up from the Rec but don’t want to spend 4 hours out on the course. Continuing the Rec/Poker run concept this year the course will be shortened to 2000ft with emphasis on having a bit more fun and a bit less suffer. In this non-timed event competitors pick up playing cards at all transitions and the racer with the best poker hand at the finish winning.

Shwag giveaways from GORETEX, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, Helly Hansen, Arcteryx, Dynafit and Marmot

  1. Hell yeah stoked!

  2. I’ll try to make myself available for photos.

  3. Is there going to be a separate rec course this year or will it be like last year where it’s the Enduro course minus the last loop?
