"Battle in the Bowls is a favorite for explorers, hard charging athletes and weekend warriors that love Aspen Highlands and its amazing terrain," said John Rigney, vice president of sales and events, Aspen Skiing Company.
In the competitive skiing/riding division of the race athletes will battle their own limits and challenge themselves against other teams of two skiers in an effort to cover the course as quickly as possible. The race will also have a recreational division, where the course will be different but still feature elements of the competitive course.
Course details will not be released until race day, but Highland Bowl will be a mandatory component for both divisions and the course is meant to be covered in less than 4.5 hours. Athletes can take any route they desire as long as they complete every run listed. Flaik GPS devices track the athletes as they charge across the mountain. Each team’s final time is an average of its members’ times.
