Bringing Together the Weak, Strong and the Thirsty...
Uphill/Downhill Challenge | Copper Mountain Resort, CO
2016 Challenge info will be posted late fall.
The 2015 Demo’s annual Uphill/Downhill Challenge once again gathered “the weak, strong and the thirsty” to help raise funds for The American Institute of Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE). Teams competed against their own best times and COSMIC levels.
In the COSMIC level, First Place Men’s was Marshall Thompson and Women’s was Sari Anderson. For the Industry level, First Place Women’s was Annelise Loevlie and Men’s was Mike Genaver. First place in the Team level was Dynafit’s “Colorado Edibles,” Second place went to La Sportiva’s “Uno,” and Third went to Team Mowhawk.
“Race was fantastic! Brutal climb in the beginning – the descent through the trees was heinous - so awesome though! Overall, super fun and so glad to be here again.” – Marshall Thompson, US Ski Mountaineering Team.
“I took it more like a ski tour, not a race – I enjoyed it a lot!” - Kimberly Plake, Elan
$1,200 was raised for AIARE. Thanks to all who participated.
