A very painful record may be broken this weekend.
Sunlight Mountain, near Glenwood Springs, is holding a "24 hours of Sunlight" race, in which contestants ski up and down the mountain as many times as possible in 24 hours. Canadian Greg Hill (above), who set the 24-hour world record last year by climbing and skiing 40,000 vertical feet, will attempt to break his record this year.
40,000 vertical feet in a day is the equivalent of climbing Pikes Peak five times. Yikes.
