Race starts at Warm Springs Plaza (elevation 5,894' ft) goes immediately up the legendary Warm Springs ski run. The relentless climb taunts you as you push for relief on the final headwall of the Warm Springs ski run before reaching the Lookout Restaurant (9000’ ft). Another 150 feet on a mellow service road gets you to the true summit of Bald Mountain (elevation 9,150) where you’ll be greated by sweeping views of 5 mountain ranges and an abandoned Forest Service lookout.
Now the real fun begins, you'll push the Bald Mountain ridge with amazing views in all directions.Once you reward yourself, summiting Bald Mountain (9,150' ft), you will begin your descent down to the Broadway Saddle via the Bowl Lane Service Road, where you’ll drop into a descent of the Broadway ski run to the Seattle Ridge chairlift (elevation 7392’ ft). A brief, 1 mile, 300 ft climb will bring you to the Resort’s historic Roundhouse Restaurant.
From the Roundhouse Restaurant, you’ll begin the singletrack descent on the Roundhouse Connector trail to the Bald Mountain Trail. As you descend the Bald Mountain trail through big Aspen groves and pine trees, you'll see views of both base areas and the mountain town of Ketchum, descending on amazing single track. A brief service road traverse will bring you to the Warm Springs trail, a cruisy, shaded 8% singletrack descent crossing back and forth under the famous Challanger chairlift toward the Warm Springs base area where you started. As you approach the base area, you'll hear the music and good times bumping as you near the finish line, back where you started. Please stay on marked & established trails at all times, be courteous of your day hikers out enjoying nature on the same trails.
