COSMIC - The Colorado Ski Mountaineering Cup was founded in 2007. The COSMIC series mission is to promote competitive ski mountaineering events in the Rocky Mountains. COSMIC events connect mid week and weekend events with sponsors and participants. Most events include a "Recreation" category distance of approximately 2,500' as well as a "Race" distance from 4,000' to 8,000"+ for longer events. COSMIC conducts skimo clinics in the early winter as well as at many events to introduce new participants to the sport. COSMIC Facebook and Twitter feeds are updated often with current event and clinic information. Look around the site, find a race or clinic and get out there! We look forward to seeing you on snow.
