Al Johnson TeleMark Race I March 24

The 45th Annual Al Johnson Uphill/ Downhill Telemark Race honors the roots of skiing in Crested Butte, and benefits the Crested Butte Avalanche Center.

This Colorado costume event is as much fun to watch as it is to participate in! In tribute to a rugged 19th century mailman, competitors in wacky costumes climb 660 vertical feet, then descend 1200 feet down double-black diamond steeps, some having never telemarked at all! There will be prizes for best times, best costumes and best fall. The race can be tag-team or individual, or enjoyed as a spectator with access to the venue by an intermediate run.
