Ezakimak is back, July 23
The Ezakimak – that’s Kamikaze spelled backwards – is back! On July 23, take the challenge with an uphill moonlit race from Main Lodge to the Summit by bike or by foot. The 5k race follows the Kamikaze bike trail and gains 2,000 ft in elevation. For those looking for a less grueling Saturday night activity, the 11,053 elevation Full[ish] Moon Party will be happening simultaneously at the summit. Ride the gondola to the top at dusk and party under the moon as the Ezakimak finishers come through the finish line.
