[ARCHIVED] Tough Mudder Returns to Snowmass Village 8/25 - 8/26

With participant numbers anticipated near 8,000 on Saturday, August 25th and 1,000 on Sunday, August 26th, Tough Mudder will be Snowmass Village’s largest event of the summer to date.

The obstacle course, designed to maximize variety, topography, and excitement, utilizes several town roadways, easements, and trails, resulting in several short-term community impacts such as traffic delays, limited parking, and trail closures.

On Saturday, August 25th from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, August 26th from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., residents can expect the following:

Traffic, Roads, and Parking

  • Bus traffic only on upper Brush Creek Road (from the roundabout to Divide Rd.) A detour will be in place to access the Upper Village via Carriage Way.
  • Traffic delays are expected on Carriage way near lot 1. Please drive carefully and pay attention to course marshals and safety officials.
  • Parking in the Village will be extremely limited or unavailable during the event. Please respect parking signage and utilize free public transportation provided by the Village Shuttle.


The following trails are part of the Tough Mudder Course and will have heavy race traffic during the event. Spectators are welcome, but we recommend avoiding trails on the west side of the mountain if you do not want to encounter event traffic. 

  • Brush Creek Trail (from Creekside to Wood Road)
  • Sleigh Ride
  • Mountain View Trail
  • Campground Connector
  • Ditch Trail
  • Village Bound

Motorists and trail users are asked to please obey signage and chose alternative routes for recreation to ensure a safe and secure race route.


In addition to normal Village Shuttle routes and schedules, Tough Mudder will provide extra shuttles for Tough Mudder participants. Although some buses may be delayed slightly, no major transit impacts are anticipated over the weekend.
