Stunning alpine views, meadows of wildflowers, good mix of technical and non-technical trails, very little forest service road, point to point, challenging profile, sumptuous aid stations, great organization, enthusiastic volunteers, and a lake at the end for soaking. SERIOUSLY SCENIC. Challenging race due to climbs. Technical and non-technical mix. One river crossing for 120 mile and relay (has current, ropes provided). 120 mile race has elevation gain of 8673 metres, just short of Everest at 8848 metres. 120 mile racers have said that the only harder race is Hardrock.
