To complete the course racers climb up 700 vertical feet, transition out of their skins or snowshoes at the top of the Corona lift, then ski/ride down the double black diamond run to the finish. Prizes are given for best costume, fastest female, fastest male and tag team categories. The awards ceremony will be held at Eldora Mountain Resort Lodge and will feature The Love Brothers band, beers, and raffle prizes.
