ProGRT Course

The ProGRT course will begin in the start house adjacent to the Cabriolet Gondola. Racers will drop in and cross under the lift before entering their first rock garden section. From there they will cross the open rock faces of the Great Northern ski trail dropping them into the rocky chutes of 99. Racers will exit the bottom of 99 back onto Great Northern setting them up for entry into the Asylum rock garden. Coming off the rocks of Asylum racers will enter the rhythm section of lower Asylum before descending the Fly Racing Bridge into the moto whoops. Coming out of the whoops racers will descend into some of the steepest bits of the course starting with a technical rock roll down taking them across the horizon ski trail and back into woods leading to Crap Chute. Coming out of Crap Chute racers will cross the Sayonara ski trail to enter their last rock section in Lower Ripper. Once out of Lower Ripper, racers will set up for the Shimano Container Drop leading them straight into the finish.

Next Gen Race

This year’s Next Gen race course will be very similar to last year’s course. It will start on the Khyber Pass ski trail just below where Greenhorn crosses. Racers will make their way through a series of flat, switchback turns before entering they rhythm section of Indy leading them straight to the finish.
