Grand Traverse Ski
March 28 @ 12:00 am - March 30 @ 5:00 pm UTC-7
The Grand Traverse is a backcountry ski race from Crested Butte to Aspen, CO. Competitors travel 40 miles over the Elk Mountains, climbing more than 6,800 vertical feet. To ensure their safety, racers must have a partner, carry mandatory gear and start at midnight when avalanche danger is low. Travis Macy, whose mother is a triple organ transplant recipient and father is a living organ donor, is racing in this epic backcountry competition. He is dedicated to raising awareness for organ donation and is donating all funds raised to the Chris Klug Foundation.
