Al Johnson Uphill / Downhill Race
March 27, 2012
This race has a long standing tradition here in Crested Butte. Yes, it is a telemark race that requires the participants to skin up and ski down some extreme terrain. But more importantly everyone dresses in their best costumes. Almost any event seems to come with costumes in Crested Butte but this is the one that everyone spends the year planning for. It is always a great event for spectators! (However, if you are up for the challenge you can participate.) Here is a shot at the finish line which this year was right next to the Paradise Warming Hut Bar. And what a perfectly sunny day to sit outside and enjoy!
