Al Johnson Telemark Race
This Colorado costume event is as much fun to watch as it is to participate in. In tribute 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! 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.
