New for 2019!
The Snowbowl 15k is going cupless! Last year Runner’s Edge Events used over 20,000 cups. In order to cut down on waste we are moving all of our races to cupless events.
What this means for you– Please plan on carrying a bottle, bladder, or collapsible cup for use at the aid stations. If you would like to take advantage of the water, coffee, recovery drinks, or any other fluids we may have in the start/finish area, please plan on bringing a personal cup to use.
Thank you for helping us reduce waste at our events!
The beautiful loop course will start and finish in the Snowbowl base area. The 9.3 mile course will climb for 4.65 miles on a mixture of dirt and double track roads. You will reach the top of the climb, and the only aid station on the course, at the top of Grizzly Chair. From there you will enjoy a beautiful 4.65 mile descent down the popular stretch of single track in the ski area, known as Beargrass Highway. This trail will bring you all the way back to the base area and finish line. There is 2,150 ft of climbing in the race and 2,150 ft of flowy single track descending.

Make a Day of it!
Bring the whole family for the race and stay for the zipline and huckleberries! All summer long the Montana Snowbowl operates zipline tours that criss-cross the resort. Now you can take a post-race ride and enjoy a birds eye view of terrain you covered by foot. Plus you’ll have more chances to pick huckleberries than you did while hurtling down the Beargrass Highway!
There will be one aid station on the course. It will be located at the top of the climb at 4.65 Miles and will be stocked with water, electrolyte drink and goodies from Clif Bar.
There will be an awards ceremony celebrating the top 3 overall Men’s and Women’s runners, as well as the top 3 men and women in age groups 0-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+
