Headwaters Spring Runoff

From March 11, 2016 until March 13, 2016

The Headwaters Spring Runoff has become an annual tradition for local tough guys and gals, drawing competitors from around the region to test themselves on the steep chutes, gullies and cliffs on the north side of Lone Mountain. 

Spectators can watch the event from Stillwater Bowl, with great line-of-sight views into the cirque. "The Headwaters terrain is such a unique freeskiing venue," said Dave Benes, Big Sky Resort Ski Patrol Assistant Director. "The steeps alone catch your eye, with angles upwards of 55 degrees. The variety of tight, technical lines and wide open amphitheater allow for multiple line combinations and tons of creativity."
