The Taos Ski Valley Up & Over Run starts at an already-dizzying 9,207 feet– and you can be sure that you’ll only be climbing. True to its name, the course begins with a grueling 3-mile climb, (you’re already looking at 2,000 feet on elevation gain!) before topping off at Lift #2, with, the race promises, “amazing views of Kachina Peak,” filled with bighorn sheep that call the mountain home. Stick around after the race and you can listen to live music outdoors as awards are handed out.
