2nd Annual Luggi Foeger Uphill/Downhill Festival: March 30-31, 2019 unicorn uphill

What used to be simply the Diamond Peak Uphill/Downhill Dash has been expanded into a full weekend of fun and renamed the Luggi Foeger Uphill/Downhill Festival! On Saturday, 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. Winners are awarded for both categories. The weekend will also include fun activities in the base area including ski boot races, live music, fun relays, and more! Costumes are strongly encouraged. 

Schedule and details coming soon. Save the date and invite your friends on Facebook: Luggi Foeger Uphill/Downhill 2019 Event
