Join First Descents on June 9-10 for Ragnar Trail Snowmass in Colorado. First Descents is thrilled to be the charity partner for Ragnar Trail Snowmass for the second year in a row.
You might be asking “What is Ragnar”? Teams of 8 individuals will find their inner wild on three separate mountain trails, or “loops” that start and finish at Ragnar Village. Over a 245 hour period, each individual will have ran 14.3 miles and raised thousands of dollars for First Descents! Glacial valleys, snowcapped peaks, and blooming wildflowers set the scene as you make your way along rolling single-track. Though you may blame the altitude, in the end it will be the stunning mountain views that take your breath away.
You receive the following benefits by joining the First Descents teams:
