The Vail Recreation District brings their winter race events to Beaver Creek with an uphill and skimo competition. 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 1,700 vertical feet and just under two miles from the base of Arrowhead Village to the top of Arrow Bahn Express Lift. The event will conclude with breakfast and awards at Broken Arrow Restaurant at the base of Arrowhead. 

Online registration is available prior to race day and day-of registration and bib pickup will be available at Broken Arrow in Arrowhead Village prior to the race starting at 6 a.m.

Race entry fees are $36 through Jan. 20, $42 the week of the event and $50 the day of the race.
