Arapahoe Basin's Rise and Shine Rando Series #1

November 17, 2017

At predawn on Tuesday, over 90 people take off for uphill on their skis from the base of High Noon run at Arapahoe Basin. In part of the resort's "Rise and Shine Rando Race Series #1," the competitors were challenged to do as many laps as they can in one hour from the base to Black Mountain Lodge at mid-mountain, approximately 750 feet of vertical climb. With the use of skins attached to the bottom of the skis to climb uphill in a cross-country ski form, 13 of out over 90 competitors completed 5 laps, nearly 4000 feet going up in total, in one hour.
