Winter Park has a wealth of outdoor adventures in-store for you during your time here. One of the most fantastic events that Winter Park hosts is the annual Summit Assault, a brutal but rewarding race to the top of Winter Park Resort’s iconic Mary Jane mountain. Read on below to find out more about this incredible race up the mountain in Winter Park!
Conquer Winter Park Resort’s Most Famous Mountain
Summit Assault is held at Winter Park Resort in early to mid-September of each year. 2018’s race will take place on September 8th from 9:00am – 5:00pm. You’ll find Winter Park Resort located at 85 Parsenn Rd., Winter Park, CO 80482.
During the course of this all day event, race participants tackle an intense trail that spans six miles and an elevation gain of 2,500 feet, beginning at the base of Winter Park Resort and leading to the top of the iconic Mary Jane peak in an entirely uphill challenge. At the end of the trail, you and your guests will get to enjoy refreshments (including free beer) and ride the chairlift back down the mountain while enjoying a stunningly picturesque mountain panorama.
While extremely challenging, the dynamic terrain experience and sweeping, panoramic views at the end of the trail make Summit Assault a unique race that you’ll never forget. To commemorate the race, all race participants receive a Summit Assault trucker hat, a Summit Assault badge, and a Summit Assault window decal.
Tickets for Summit Assault cost between $55.00 and $65.00 depending on when you register for the race. Registration costs $55.00 – $60.00 until August 24th, after which the price goes up to $65.00. Registration costs $90.00 if you delay until the day of the race. We recommend registering as soon as possible and planning your Winter Park vacation early in order to take advantage of the reduced registration price!
