The Arapahoe Basin Enduro is coming up this Wednesday, April 14. 35 teams of two will ski designated laps on Pali for 10 hours. For a few, there are bragging rights involved to ski the most runs. For everyone else it is a fantastic day of friendship and comradery, enjoying the Pali Chair and terrain. When I was younger, I did it five times with my son. For me, the post event always involved a lot of ice and ibuprofen. But, we had a blast.

In addition to the skiing, the event is a major fundraiser for a local cause. This year all the proceeds will go to A-Basin Snowcat Operator Scott Buell. He had a stroke in December. While he is back at work, funds raised will help him defray medical costs.

Chef Rybak will be hosting a small 6th Alley Dinner Wednesday night with tuna poke, grilled wagyu sirloin and chocolate lava cake. Space is still available. From Monday through Friday there will be a virtual silent auction for the fundraiser. There will all kinds goodies for auction including a couple of Pallavicini trail signs.

All and all, this is a really fun event and it is for a great cause. To sign up for dinner or to learn more go to:
