It was an awesome and challenging event. Great for individuals or teams.
Benjamin Runkle

Member of Yeti Nation

The race was amazing from start to finish. The obstacles were very challenging, the terrain was snowy and hilly, and there was very little wait time getting on the obstacles. The avalanche snow tube obstacle was lots of fun and a good change of pace.
Greg A Johnson

Member of Yeti Nation

So much fun! The obstacles were challenging, but not intimidating. Beautiful trails to run on, which weren't congested. If you wanted to pass someone, you could. The view from the top of the hill was great. The organizers did an awesome job! I'll be back next year!
Renee Bleske Keeney

Great race! Well organized, course was marked well, descent obstacles, and excellent use of terrain. It's for athletes of all levels or can be just for fun. There's challenging and fun aspects to the entire event.
Christopher Kaufmann

This was the most organized and managed event I've ran. As a first responder (firefighter/paramedic) the heroes heat was a very nice tribute. The obstacles were put together nicely and the running route flowed well. Looking forward to next year. Thank you again for making this a memorable race.

Did it last year and came back for more! Thanks for a great event, well organized and the course was excellent this year! New obstacles were a blast. Can't wait until next year.
Amanda Sutherland Elmer

My husband and I are from Pennsylvania and flew out just for this race! It was well organized and everyone was super friendly and helpful, the obstacles were challenging and well laidout! We do mud/obstacle runs but this was our first snow/obstacle. Definitely a cool location and a really good obstacle run! It was well worth the trip!
