Ski Santa Fe, Hutton Broadcasting and SantaFe.com host the 25th Annual Jeff Gladfelter Memorial Bump Run. Registration for the event starts at 8:30 a.m. in the La Casa Café inside the Ski Santa Fe ski lodge on Saturday, March 31. The event starts at 12 p.m. Registration fee for the event is $15 and entrants are required to purchase a lift ticket to take part in the event. The bump run event takes place on the Ski Santa Fe ski run called Slalom, which is located in a line of sight and just east of the outdoor deck of Totemoff’s Bar and Grill, the mountain's midway point, making it a perfect run for viewing this fun event.
The Jeff Gladfelter Memorial Bump Run was created to memorialize and honor local ski legend and outdoor photographer Jeff Gladfelter. In and around Santa Fe Jeff was known for his spectacular skiing, epic snow caves at Ski Santa Fe that he and his friends made meals in and slept in at night, as well as beautiful outdoor winter and summer time mountain photography. When Jeff and his friends roamed the ski runs at Ski Santa Fe back in the day, on the nights when there was a big snow drop that brought a ton of powder to the area, he and his pals would come out in the morning from their one night of hibernation in one of their legendary snow caves and get first tracks on the fresh powder before the ski patrol or any other skiers had made it up the mountain.
