Durango’s Jason Schlarb to run Hardrock 100 after completing course’s first ski traverse

Durango’s Jason Schlarb completed the Hardrock 100 course on skis with a group of three other men. Together, they completed the first ski traverse of the course. Now, Schlarb is ready to run the Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run after finally being selected in the lottery.
Durango’s Jason Schlarb will hope to kiss the Hardrock for a second time in 2016. After kissing it to complete the first-ever ski traverse of the course, he hopes to kiss it once more to signal the end of his Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run.
The group boot-packed their way to Kroger’s. Unlike at the Hardrock Hundred Endurance Race, the always-entertaining aid station wasn’t awaiting the crew.
After climbing the summit of Handies Peak, the group reached the highest point of the course at more than 14,000 feet. It was an accomplishment worthy of a high-five.
Jason Schlarb looked strong during his ski down to Eureka.
The Hardrock 100 course is a true mountaineering experience no matter what time of year. In March, Durango’s Scott Simmons needed an ice axe to get up some steep pitches.
