WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS…

The GoPro Mountain Games Homestake Steep Creek Championship race has moved from its original location on Homestake Creek to Dowd Chute on the Eagle River, near Eagle-Vail.

More information about course times, start location, race format, etc coming soon.

This race will once again take the Mountain Games to the legendary “Dowd Chute” Class IV section of river that local paddlers know and love. The event has a history with this stretch of river, going back to the years when there was an International Whitewater Series, before the Mountain Games existed. Since 2003, its second year, the Mountain Games has hosted an event on Homestake Creek.

Spectators will be able to view the race from the pedestrian bridge overlooking the Eagle River, above the confluence of Gore Creek and the Eagle River. Spectators will not be allowed on river left or river right of the Dowd Chute section of the run. Parking is extremely limited!
