Uphill/Downhill Race: King of the Hill

What is the King of the Hill?

KotH is an uphill/downhill race where participants may choose any non-motorized, non-wheeled winter gear to travel both uphill and downhill sections of the course. Snowshoes, alpine, xc, telemark or randonee skis and bindings, snowboards, climbing skins are all permitted. Participants must carry all their gear from start to finish. A Le Mans start will have participants run ten yards in their boots to strap into their waiting gear of choice. All ages and abilities are welcome.


Begin at Ivan’s Café; course heads toward the yellow lift, up Chicken’s Choice, down Sally’s Alley, past the red lift, up River Run, up Village Way, and down Queen’s Corner and Belle’s Bottom back to the start line.
