Discrete Peak Series – Stop 1: Alta Ski Area

Dillon Green
We just wrapped up the Peak Series inaugural event. I approached race director, Julian Carr, to ask him what people should expect from the venue. He gave me a little grin and said, “I designed the courses to be short in distance with maximum elevation gain. Everyone will test their physical capabilities, both lungs and muscles, to the absolute 100% threshold until they reach the summit.” He was more than correct. The first stop of the Discrete Peak Series WENT OFF. People flooded in by the masses to Alta Ski Area and were treated to an epic race and a sick after party.  Congrats to JP Donovan and Emma Garrard won the mens and women's GoPro Peak Freak award for the fast male & female to the top of Baldy!  And they won the 'pro' categories 1st place for entire race as well.  What athletes!
