The Grand Traverse

Further. Faster. Podcast

Mar 30 2022 • 27 mins

In this episode, host Daniel Neilson talks to Andrew Arell, who is the Race Director of The Grand Traverse. For the first time in 2022, Montane is headline sponsoring this prestigious, 40-mile, point-to-point ski race.

Starting in Crested Butte, Colorado, racers tackle the Elk Mountain Range, climbing 6,500 feet (2088m) to finish in Aspen. This years race is taking place on April 2nd to 3rd. In recent years the race has also added 2 additional summer experiences. Held in September, racers can tackle the route on foot or on mountain bikes.

Andrew gives us his point of view as the director and delves into the complexities of organising a race that heads deep into the backcountry, with the risks of extreme weather and avalanche terrain. Most importantly he wants everyone to be safe and have a great experience.

Thanks for listening! Please leave us a rating or review and we’ll be back in a couple of weeks.
