Yes we are still running and biking in the mountains, but with the leaves starting to change it's got us planning our Winter schedule already.
The COSMIC Series now in like its 7th year (?!?!), has come out with 10 events on an ever evolving schedule. Included are the classics like Irwin, CB (yes you will need a via ferrata kit again), the 5 Peaks and Power of Four.
Additional highlights include.... the Sunlight race will be the third of three US Team Qualifiers, Monarch will be on the Sunday right after Saturday's CB race ...both resorts are basically in Gunnison County so plan to stay in town Saturday night for Sunday's Monarch race! The Teva Winter Games will be back for its second year and is quickly becoming an instant classic. The San Juans Rando provides a true off piste feel later in April along with the end of the season finale at A-Basin with the Spyder Grind.
Additionally US Nationals will be held at Jackson Hole on January 5th and Grand Targhee on the 6th...both will be US Team Qualifiers. The Elk Mtns Grand Traverse registration will open on Dec 1st with that race going from CB to Aspen on March 29th & 30th.
Lots of excitement to get you in the gym or in the hills for your Winter Ski Conditioning!
Pray for snow,
