The uphill/downhill event (known in some circles as a rando race) is open to all disciplines, Telemark, Nordic (if you are brave enough to ski off the top of the upper bowl on skinny skis), Alpine Tourers and Splitboarders.
New for this year at Tele Tuesday’s is a Avalanche transceiver demo from 5-7pm. Avalanche instructors from Timberline Mountain Guides and Mountain Savvy will be on hand to help participants check out the latest avalanche transceivers. We also will have Terminal Gravity beer on tap in the A-frame (Outback Lodge) for $3 a pint with the proceeds going to the Snowrider Project. We will move up to the Bierstube at 10 pm for a raffle and prizes for the race.
All event participants must purchase a lift ticket from Ski Bowl or have an active pass. Registration for the race, demo, and lessons goes from 5 pm to 6:30 pm. Event fees are as follows.
