WEATHER

The weather in February can be extremely unpredictable and can change drastically throughout the Day. We encourage athletes to prepare for a wide variation in temperature, wind chill factors, and precipitation. We have had Race Days where the temperature has been in the high 50s with minimal winds and no precipitation. We have also had days where the temperature was in the low 40s with wind chill below zero on the face of the mountain.

Whiteout conditions can exist on the top half of the mountain.

Course conditions may mean exposed rocks, tree roots, cattle guard, etc. We cannot be responsible for the damage caused by these and other road hazards to yourself or equipment. Please choose appropriate race equipment!

Plan for these changes in temperatures by layering your clothing, so you can make adjustments along the way. It is helpful to have extra clothing, gloves, hats, and jackets at each of the transition points.

A contingency plan is in place provided the mountain lacks enough snow on Race Day.

If we cannot host the race due to severe weather, we will update our website/Facebook/etc. as soon as we know.

There will not be any refunds due to Acts Of God or if the race is cancelled for any reason.
