The Al Johnson Telemark Race (The AJ)
Maybe the staple of what Crested Butte is all about, the 45th annual Al Johnson Uphill/Downhill Telemark Ski Race is sure to be a good time. Telemark skiers, some for the first time flaunt their best costumes all while climbing 660 vertical feet, then descend 1,200 feet down double-black diamond steeps.
There will be prizes for best times, best costumes and best fall. The race can be tag-team or individual, or enjoyed as a spectator with access to the venue by an intermediate run.
Tag Team race starts at the bottom of the North Face Lift at 12 pm. The main event, the Individual race, starts at 1 pm. If you’re not up for the laid back competition, spectating can be seen at the top of paradise bowl or at the bottom of the last steep.
