Plaza2Peak - Sat. April 11th

Daybreak at the top of the Triple Chair - Towers just beyond
One of our local hard-chargers has developed the brilliant idea of a DIY enduro race from the Plaza to Tesuque Peak. Run or Bike to the ski area, then skin or ski to the Towers, and finish back down at the parking lot for the post-race bash and casual apres-ski. More importantly, Mady has pulled together plans, a date, entry forms, and multiple emails encouraging friends to promote the genius mountain foray.

Loosely organized last December the tentative date for Plaza2Peak is now set for Sunday Saturday April 11th, 10am start. A date that may even work for harried tax accountants.

Many of us talk of setting something up like this. Several of us have even sent town-to-towers in one form or another (running from the Tesuque trailhead off CR 72A to the Towers via Winsor is about 13mi, takes about 3hrs), but it's rad that someone has added organization to an interesting idea that usually goes solo or in isolated groups of two or three. Katie Arnold moved this type of idea forward several years ago with the Dale Ball Buster.
Moar Plz!
