VertFest is an uphill ski/splitboard race that is equal parts challenging and fun. Participants will include everything from the superhuman SkiMo racers (man those guys/gals are fast) to recreational backcountry enthusiasts out in costume. There is a category for all to participate in, whether it be youth, recreational, elite, or you first-timers! All race participants will receive a neck warmer thanks to our friends at BlackStrap. This is a celebration of the backcountry community and winter tribe. Slog it out with some friends, don your most insane costume (highly encouraged), work off those winter beers, or just come CELEBRATE!!!
