Overview

In 2018, we are proud to present the 8th annual Audi Power of Four Mountain Bike race. This race features a point-to-point course covering the classic singletrack on Government Trail plus a mix of the new flow trails on Snowmass and the challenging steep climbs and descents on both Aspen Highlands and Aspen Mountain.

The full four-mountain course is a 33-mile race (plus or minus a few) with close to 10,000 feet in elevation gain and decent. A two-mountain course utilizes the same start in Snowmass and finishes at the base of Buttermilk's Tiehack side after covering 15-miles of almost all singletrack trails.​

Description

SNOWMASS:
Start in Base Village (at the base of the Village Express lift in Snowmass), ride up Fanny Hill Road and follow right before Coney Glade lift. Turn left onto Village Bound above Water Plant Building. Follow Village Bound uphill until it ends on work road. Continue on Sam's Knob Road through tunnel and turn left onto Cross Mountain Trail before Ullrhof Restaurant.

Stay on Cross Mountain Trail over Trestle Bridge and through the first intersection with Verde and Viking. Turn right onto Government Trail/Verde at the next intersection with Viking and follow Government Trail to Buttermilk.
