Montane Grand Traverse: April & September, 2022

We are excited to announce that in 2022 we will be headline sponsors of The Grand Traverse - the most time-honored point-to-point ski race in North America. Based in Aspen, Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, the Grand Traverse has an impressive 26 year legacy and provides a test of perseverance across 40 miles of high alpine terrain. This has rightly earned the race its status as a proving ground for mountain athletes. Skiers across the world see the ‘GT’ to be a rite of passage quest, an imperative objective to be attempted in every skier’s lifetime.

In addition to a Ski race in April, there are now also 2 more Grand Traverse race experiences, introduced in recent years. These take place later in the year to open up summer activities, with mountain biking and run races held in September. This means participants can now compete for a coveted GT triple crown!
