Gunbarrel 25 2017 Edition Event Details
No matter where you are in South Lake Tahoe the face of Gunbarrel from Heavenly Ski Resort calls you like a beacon asking you to ski or snowboard it. For most even one lap on the 1600 vertical foot run will leave numb, but in this competition it will test your mettle.
The Challenge: take 25 laps on Heavenly’s most famous mogul run, Gunbarrel off of The Face on the California side in one day!
Best times for the event in the past have been in the area of three hours.
25 Laps not enough? Ironman provides
For those that think 25 laps is for pansies there is an Ironman division that awards the man and woman who complete the most laps of the steep face over the six hours. In the past event more than 40 laps have been recorded. We seriously don’t know how their knees could take that kind of beating… but that’s why we’re guessing it’s called the Ironman division.
