While you were sleeping peacefully last night, two-person teams took off at midnight on the 16th annual Elk Mountain Grand Traverse - a 40-mile backcountry endurance race from Crested Butte to Aspen. Racers will climb more than 7,800 vertical feet before descending into Aspen this afternoon. Come cheer on these great athletes at the finish line, they deserve it!
