The Grand Traverse is a 40 mile backcountry ski race from Crested Butte to Aspen over the mountains and I was hooked! We had a blast even though I think it turned into a sufferfest for both of us.
Special thanks to Debra who supported us and basically made it much easier by driving my truck the 4 hours from Crested Butte to Aspen for me. Below is a photo blog of the race. Good times were had by all! I see more ski mountaineering races in my future.
