Winter Wild returns to Gunstock!
Winter Wild is an uphill series with a twist, the finish is at the bottom so you get to come back down too. Grab your skis, grab your snowshoes, or just grab your favorite winter running shoes and join us for some winter fun. Do you like first tracks? Most events take place at a public ski area and you get to hit slopes before they open to the public. What's not to like about that!
The activity is called "uphilling" and it's adding a whole new dimension of fun and purpose to winter recreation. Uphilling is a hearty winter workout, where participants ascend a ski slope using either snowshoes, skis with climbing "skins" or running shoes with "microspikes". You might say it's an activity that's people-powered rather than machined-powered. For the Winter Wild series, participants go down the mountain the same way they went up, those on skis get to slide down the slopes.
