Glen Plake hosted the 10th Annual Gunbarrel 25 at Heavenly Mountain Resort on Sunday, April 7, 2013.
200 competitors raced the clock to complete 25 runs down Heavenly's world-famous mogul run on 'The Face' in one day. Some competitors even completed more than 25 laps down the steep moguls! Glen Plake talks about the 'Face-Rats' since the 70s and the history of Gunbarrel at Heavenly Mountain. The Gunbarrel 25 is a Lake Tahoe legendary spring event and is part of Spring Loaded.
Glen Plake describes the event, as "This event is about making a personal commitment to do something that aint easy, but it aint impossible, biting down and getting it done... They do every year."
