ENVIRONMENTALLY NEUTRAL DESIGN. END was born out of idea that better design through problem solving is the next step in making greener gear for the outdoor athlete. We will not just replace toxic or virgin materials with sustainable ones, our evolutionary design process, Co2ND, will begin at the design table. Here we will question every seam, every stitch, every material and every step in the manufacturing process…we will question everything in our quest to minimize the footprint of our products prior to manufacturing.
About Timberline Lodge and the venue on the Mt. Hood:
The lodge and the event start at 6,000'. There are more than 1,000 acres of terrain at Timberline,
4,000' of verticle options. The ski area and biggest slopes in the Northwest will set the course
up as one of the best mountain runs in the US. Terrain will include slopes, trails, skid roads, and any other shiggy
deemed as worthy.
We reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone. This pretty much means if you are lame and won't add to the event flavor.
