The Gunbarrel 25

Got legs of steel? Then join us on Saturday, April 2nd, 10:00am-4:00pm (conditions permitting) for this one-of-a-kind ski/ride marathon designed for everyone.


The Challenge: take 25 laps on Heavenly’s famous mogul run, Gunbarrel, off of The Face on the California side in one day! You won’t want to miss this signature spring event.

This is one of South Lake Tahoe’s favorite annual events, a day the ‘Face Rats’ look forward to every year. The training that goes into completing this event is intense. One run down Gunbarrel is enough to challenge most advanced skiers, 25 non-stop laps is enough to daunt even the most seasoned ski bum. Weather you’re up for the challenge, or spectating from the lodge below, seeing dozens of steely competitors racing down all that vertical in just 6 hours is a spectacle.


How do I participate? Pre-registration for the event can be done by phone (530.542.5129) or by email:

Registration on the day of the event will be in held in the California Main Lodge from 7:30-9:30am. The cost is $50 for pass holders and $115 for non-pass holders, which includes a $65 guest fee ticket plus entry fee.
