The return of the Big Shooter Bonk ski marathon was a success with more than 60 skiers going the distance in last Saturday’s event near Kremmling.

Starting at Latigo Ranch about 15 miles north of Kremmling, the cross-country skiers had their choice of racing either a 60-kilometer or 30-kilometer distance. Those choosing the 60K skied nearly to the top of Rabbit Ears Pass before skiing back to the finish line at the ranch.

Last held in 2001, the “Bonk” is the second longest Nordic ski race in Colorado this winter. The race is organized by Shawn and Stephenie Scholl, owners of the Big Shooter Cafe in Kremmling.

The complete results for both the 60K and 30K races held Saturday are:
