It is also designed to highlight through marketing and media the diverse and incredible trail system we have throughout Snowmass. The bike industry has moved from Cross- Country specific bikes and trails, to more "Freeride and Flow" trails. As a result, a new category of bike as emerged. "The long travel, but can climb" bike. This is the future of the sport, and Snowmass has always been on the cutting edge of mountain biking and the events and culture that surrounds it. This exciting event is composed of 4- stages over 3 -days. It is as much about a fun event as it is about friendly competition. This years event is capped at 300 people with 4 total Page 2 of 6 httn•/ /cnarialavantc acrnannitlrin rnm /data i1c rfm` h ,rintvianrflarr- 1Rravnntirl -1A7 KI1C11')111rf categories Pro Men/Women and Amateur Men/Women. While we hope for a sell -out, realistically, in year one we think we will see about 150 riders. The pro purse is set at $3000 and prizes will be awarded for the Ams. The event is mostly gravity fed in nature, but one stage has climbing. The catch is that riders only get to use one bike for all 4 stages. Helmets are mandatory, but certain stages may require more involved protective gear. Scoring will be a weighted point system. Your time will dictate your place and then a score will be awarded for that place. We are not using "Cumulative Time" as we do not want the endurance portion to carry more weight than any other stage. Its far more likely that larger time gaps would occur on that stage. All Courses are being submitted for permitting via the SKICO to the USFS with the exception of portions of Stage -4. TOSV will submit the permit for trail use for USFS and TOSV outside of the SKICO permitted area. Closed signage for the trails will be placed on trail signs one week prior to the event along with a PSA in the various newspapers. The Courses: Stage 1- The Uber D (THIS IS THE SIGNATURE STAGE) OVER 4000 VERT OF DECENDING 9am Start -Time Trial format Begin at the top of the Elk Camp CHAIRLIFT, down Vapor, down Govt Trail East, Down Anaerobic Nightmare, Down Tom Blake, ACROSS OWL CREEK RD, down Highline, down Lowline....finish just before switchbacks on Lowline ATTENTION: This stage will have the most impact on trail users and will require a brief Sunday morning closer to the USFS trails (Like we have done in the past for Blast the Mass) What's new is the brief closer of the TOSV trails Highline and Lowline. 2 Marshals will be placed on Owl Creek managing traffic, and rerouting trail traffic at the top of Highline. Another Marshal will be on Cemetery Lane managing vehicle traffic and trail traffic that may be looking to access Highline or Lowline. The racers are finished before the final switchbacks and one final Marshal will be located where Lowline exits out on Highline Road slowing down traffic and reminding cyclists to clear the way and congregate near the Town Park Station. POLICE and VARIABLE message signage would be helpful for this stage from 9 am to about 11 am. Full -face helmet and Protective gear is advised TRANSIT WILL BE MANAGED THROUGH BLAZING ADVENTURE. We have one and if needed two reserved Blazing Shuttles WITH bike rack trailers to transport riders and their bikes back up to Base Camp for awards. They will make multiple laps until all riders are back. Most riders will have a driver or ride their bikes back. ITEM TO NOTE: SKICO Mtn Rangers will be overseeing medical and safety for this stage as it goes from SKICO Permitted land, through USFS land, and ending on TOSV land. John Mele has been briefed here.

The Snowmass Rangers are a combination of OEC/EMT- B/EMT -P certified in the State Page 4 of 6 fatty I /cnrprialavante acnnnrn tic; n rnm /rlata rfm7r,rinty ;acvflor —1 R >o1,o„t;ri -1 '7 411 fl 1n t'1 of Colorado and all Rangers are members of the Snowmass Ski Patrol and Aspen Professional Ski Patrol Association. The Rangers will transport any medical emergency to Snowmass Wildcat Medic #7 Ambulance to Aspen Valley Hospital depending on nature of injury. Aspen Valley Hospital is our local Emergency room 12 miles away from Snowmass Village. The Snowmass Rangers will consist of 12 Rangers on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Summer Lift Evacuation Plan Snowmass Ski Area 2012 In the event that any lift should need to be evacuated, the lift procedures as outlined in the Snowmass Lift Evacuation Manual shall be used in addition to the following modifications to compensate for a summer /non skiing environment. 1. Senior Ranger will serve as evacuation leader. 2. In the event that one lift is disabled and requires evacuation, operation of the unaffected lift(s) should be stopped as soon as possible in order to maximize all available manpower. 3. Notify and mobilize panic list Rangers. If situation warrants additional manpower, notify Aspen Mountain Rangers, and mobilize their on -call people. Have on call patrollers meet at the Snowmass Administration Building and begin to gear up out of the "Cat Club Once ready, utilize pick -up trucks from the vehicle shop to transport to disabled lift. 4. Dispatch lift operations personnel immediately to run the line to inform passengers of the situation. Use of an ATV(4 wheeler) is recommended where possible. Be sure to follow procedures as outlined on page 9 of the evacuation manual. 5. Evacuation Leader should arrange for vehicles to transport guests to base area after evacuation is complete. Vans from the Big Burn Bears may be used. 6. Because of rough, rocky terrain, special consideration should be given to passengers who, because of age or physical limitations cannot negotiate such terrain once evacuated from the lift. Such situations may necessitate the use of ATV's or stokes litters to transport guests to a road where four wheel drive vehicles can pick them up. 7. Mountain bikes will be left on the chair lift until the lift is repaired. Therefore, it is critical to record bike model, chair number, owner's name, address, and phone number. Site Plan Boundaries: The site boundaries are confined to the trails on Snowmass Ski Area, USFS, and TOSV. Including USFS land on Gov't Trail East, Anaerobic Nightmare, Lower Tom Blake, and TOSV land including Highline and Lowline trails. No further east than Government Trial East/Anaerobic Nightmare and no further West than Government Trail West.
