Great views, fresh air, tough climbs. Ascend 4,098 feet from Chair 9 in Glacier to Artist Point (5,140 feet elevation) in approximately 22 miles. The Mt. Baker Highway (SR542) is known as one of the most scenic paved roads in the country and rarely is the highway closed to motorized vehicles from Glacier to Artist Point. With steep elevation and several switchbacks, this ride is not for the faint of heart, but the views are stunning. Experience the agony and the ecstasy!

The race begins at MP 35, 1/4 mile east of the check-in at Chair 9 Pizza & Bar.

Social: 7:00 AM
Recreational: 8:00 AM
