About This Activity

Join us for a race up Rib Mountain (aka as Granite Peak).  You have the choice of participating in a run/walk, bike, or rollersking to the top.  Races will start in the Bone and Joint Clinic parking lot or nearby and go up to the top of Rib Mountain on the park road.  The finish line will be at the lookout tower unless snowmaking has begun on the ski hill.  If snowmaking has begun, all races will end at the ranger station.  There is a paved walking path on the side of the road for the runners and walkers.  The rolllerski will go up on the road.  The road was recently repaved a few years ago and is in excellent condition for rollerskiing.

The distance for both events is about 2.5 miles and involves about 500 feet of vertical climb.  This is a very popular route for locals who want to get in a workout and enjoy the setting that Rib Mountain has to offer.  The race is an opportunity to challenge yourself and friends to this feat of endurance and perseverance.

A couple of rules to keep in mind.  Helmets are required for the rollerski and bike event and rollerskiing down the hill is not allowed for safety reasons.  A shuttle bus will be provided to take anyone back down who chooses not to walk back down.  

Those wishing to park in the State Park at the top of the hill will be required to pay the daily admission fee for state parks.
