Tough Mudder events are hardcore obstacle courses designed to test your all-around strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie. Built in a valley of the towering Green Mountains, Tough Mudder’s Mount Snow course is as unforgiving as a New England winter. Strip the course of obstacles, and a hike around Vermont’s harsh, mountainous terrain is a struggle in itself. Pepper that same terrain with obstacles that aggressively push boundaries of might and fright, and that “struggle” becomes a fight for your next headband.
