Course - All racers will follow the same course which happens to be the uphill travel route for Pico. The race will start at the Little Pico Triple, proceed up the looker's left side of Lower Pike Trail, follow lower Pike past the bottom of the Summit Express Chairlift, at Tower 7 of the Summit Express Quad, bear left up 49er trail and follow to the summit of Pico. Times will be recorded at the top of the mountain to assure all athletes summit. It's imperative that you make it to the timing checkpoint before turning around. Time will also be recorded at the base. The descent will be your choice.
Finish - For safety reasons, we will use a "soft" finish at the base. Please obey the slow skiing signs around the base area, and the finish will be skiing down to an Endurance Society staff member who will record your bib number and time, not tucking through a finish corral.
Rules - Helmets Required, no stashing food, water or gear. You must pack and carry all your own gear. This is a self supported race. We will have a jug of water at the base of the mountain. You must pack your skins vs. skiing down and holding them in your hands.
Raffle - Last year we had 30 raffle items including lift tickets, helmets, ski's, GoPro, socks, gift cards, etc.
Pico will also offer discounted lift tickets with your race entry.
NO REFUNDS OR TRANSFERS FOR THIS EVENT.
