Sky-Hi staff report

Hundreds of people gathered at Devil’s Thumb Ranch on Saturday to participate in the sixth Annual Stagecoach Classic Race & Tour, taking participants from the ranch in Tabernash 15 kilometers to where they finish at Hideaway Park in downtown Winter Park.

The event began five years ago out of a desire to create a more unique, rural race. It features two races of 30 and 15k, along with a 15k tour that allows less competitive participants to ski or snowshoe at their leisure. The 30k race is the most competitive, looping around Devil’s Thumb Ranch for 15k before proceeding toward Winter Park. The course connects a series of trails through forest service land, along with private land, and is only open one day a year.
