Full Competitive Course = as shown below in topo, table, trails (course flagging colors & rules here).
Shorter Recreational Course skips all of the bootpacks and skips one (or both-- your choice) of the repetitions of the circuit.
  1. Skin to summit (always branching Left, except at top of Lower Thruway near Plaza double terminal).
  2. Ski from summit to base of fixed-grip Blue Ribbon Quad via Stargazer & No Name Chute.
  3. Three cycles of skin>ski>boot>ski circuit (i.e., ski Sunder 6x).
  4. Upon reaching ski>skin transition, come to COMPLETE STOP...
  5. ... then ski to resort base (not flagged, but only one trail from there to base) obeying all slow skiing signs and not passing any racers in full competitive course, i.e., competitive skiing essentially finishes at Blue Ribbon Quad base, and time is recorded in front of lodge at sponsor (Hammer & Hagan) banners only for logistics reasons.
