| Become an Elk Mountains Grand Traverse Sponsor
Elk Mountains Grand Traverse is a bold endeavor in which
men and women scale rugged, avalanche swept terrain
reaching over two and a half miles into the sky, ski
more than 38 miles, and climb better than 6000 feet
. For reasons of snow safety, the race starts at midnight
and the odyssey is made mostly in the dark. Skiers travel
at altitudes savaged by winds that suck breath from
the lungs and rob extremities of feeling.
over Star and Taylor passes, the Traverse threads skiers
through a landscape both beautiful and terrible. Its
not just a race. People are tested. Gear is tested.
Nature is in charge. To ski it is to experience the
unconstrained power and exquisite loveliness of winter's
grip on the mountain world.
The Elk Mountains Grand Traverse welcomes both direct
and in-kind sponsorship. To find out how you can help
