Hikers can begin as early as 7:00 a.m. The Silver Queen chair lift will run 9:00 a.m to 2:30 p.m. Everyone is encouraged to take their time, have fun and honor those whose lives have been touched by cancer.
Brunch is provided under a tent at the base of the Red Lady chair lift. Healthy food and award winning beer from Eddyline Brewery is included for all registrants. This year Sustatinable Crested Butte will be donating reusable tableware!
