Hagan Ski USA is proud to sponsor two iconic, local (to us) races – the 5 Peaks and the Imperial Challenge.

The 5 Peaks is a great "long course" race, visiting (when snow conditions permit) the five peaks towering over Breckenridge ski area. The race climbs and descends Peaks 5 through 10 (in the opposite order). It is a two-person team race, taking approximately 3 hours for the fastest teams to complete. There is a shorter course, open to individuals, that takes a bit under 2 hours for the winners.

The Imperial Challenge is an iconic "hello to Spring" "triathlon". Racers bike from the Breckenridge Rec Center to the base of Peak 7. The bike is mostly uphill, mostly gravel and usually not dry. Conditions are often snowy, slushy, icy and muddy. Some years road bikes work, other years mountain bikes are the wiser choice. Racers then get on ski touring gear (or, regrettably, s**t boards) and climb to the top of Peak 8 just shy of 13,000 feet (if you jump, your head will be there), rip skins and descend back to the base of Peak 7. Winning time is in the 1:20s. There is also a short course - and a run instead of bike option and a team relay option.

These are our home races, which we have raced often, and we are glad to support them. We are supplying a Hagan ski to each race, along with a few raffle prizes. Sign up for the 5 Peaks here and the Imperial Challenge here. There will also be special discounts on Hagan skis to race registrants. Go to the race websites to check it out.

Montagnes Magazine

I don't read French (my German is fair), but I know how to use web translators. According to the inter web, this is what the French Montagnes Magazine said about the Hagan Boost 94: (excerpts, click the link below to read the entire review in French)

  • The Big Surprise of this Season
  • excellent stability even at high speeds
  • A model that is not unlike the behaviour of the Salomon Explore 95 but with greater rigidity.
  • This ski becomes our favourite of this 2020 range
  • slips very clearly in the first place of these tests.
  • enormous carbon-filled shovel erases all the roughness of the terrain 
  • unparalleled driving comfort in deep or trafficked snow
  • turns are easy to make

Tips for getting the best performance from Hagan hybrid climbing skins:

Tip 3. If it is quite cold and you have snow crystals on the skins, wipe them across your thigh a time or two to brush off the snow/ice. Because they aren't traditional glue, that quite effectively removes the snow (without sticking to your pants.)

With these tips, you will really enjoy the handling advantages and not needing to store them with plastic foils - ever!

"It shines in variable conditions, hard pack, crust and wind affected snowpack - basically, any time when conditions get less than ideal."
