Competitors can choose the uphill or skimo (ascent and descent) option and can use any means to get up the mountain (snowshoes, skis, splitboards or winter running devices). Skis or a snowboard with metal edges and a helmet are required to compete in the skimo competition.

Participants will ascend approximately 2100 vertical feet over two miles from the base of Centennial Lift to Spruce Saddle Lodge. The event will conclude with breakfast and awards at Powder 8 Kitchen & Tap at the base of Beaver Creek.
