Luggi Foeger Uphill/Downhill Festival

March 28 - 29th, 2020

3rd Annual Luggi Foeger Uphill/Downhill Festival: March 28-29, 2020

The Luggi Foeger Uphill/Downhill Festival and SkiMo Race takes place on Saturday, March 28, 2020. Competitors 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. 

Volunteers Needed

We need your help to make this event a big success. Maybe you don't want to hike a mountain but you could volunteer to take photos or help with registration and prizes. Volunteers will receive a lift ticket for Sunday and the satisfaction of helping their local, community-owned resort. Sign up online by March 26:
