Moosilauke Time Trial

The Dartmouth Ski Team will host its annual Moosilauke Time Trial on Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 10am.

Starting at the Ravine Lodge, athletes will ascend over 3 miles and 2000 vertical feet up the Gorge Brook Trail to the summit.  Women will start first at 30 second intervals, followed by the men.

Everyone will be chasing Kris Freeman’s 2010 record of 35:16.  Last year’s winners, Annie Hart ’15 and Erik Fagerstrom ’15 have both graduated so we will crown two new champions this time around.  Check out the historical record stretching back to 1989 and feel free to throw your hat into the ring by emailing ruff.patterson@dartmouth.edu.  If maximal uphill efforts aren’t your thing, please still come out to enjoy the hike and cheer on the team!
