Skiing the Hardrock 100: The first ever winter crossing

Skiing the Hardrock 100: The first ever winter crossing

“You got to be kind of crazy to conceive or attempt something like this.”

 

The Hardrock 100 is the legendarily ‘wild and tough’ 100 mile ultramarathon cutting through Colorado’s San Juan Mountains with 33,050 feet of climb and 33,050 feet of descent.

With rugged terrain, risks of altitude sickness and several climate zones, it’s one of the world’s toughest in the summer months– but can it be completed in the winter?

Watch as ultrarunner Jason Schlarb, ski mountaineers Scott Simmons and Paul Hamilton, and filmmaker Noah Hamilton attempt the first ever winter crossing of the brutal Hardrock 100, taking on avalanche conditions, the insane mental challenge and 15 hour days in ski boots.
