Luggi Foeger Uphill/Downhill Festival

{alt_text}
March 30th, 2018 - April 1st, 2018

What used to be simply the Diamond Peak Uphill/Downhill Dash is being expanded into a full weekend of fun! Race to the top of the mountain using whatever human-powered method you prefer: skins, snowshoes, running shoes, etc. Then ski, snowboard, snowshoe, or run back down to the finish line. For those of a less competitive nature, a recreational course will be available. Prizes will be awarded for both categories. The weekend will also include backcountry workshops, avalanche education, and more. 

The event is being co-hosted by the Sierra Avalanche Center with certain activities having a suggested donation to the Center in order to incorporate a fundraising aspect. The focus will be on fun, skiing, family and enjoying the great outdoors via human-powered sports.
