The Vertical Challenge

is a series of free casual ski and snowboard races held at ski resorts throughout the northeast each winter season. Skiers and snowboarders are divided by gender and age to compete for gold, silver, and bronze medals in a variety of age categories category. In addition to the races, there is a festival element, featuring snowy activities for all ages and prizes given away throughout a fun day at the mountain.

We’ll let you in on a secret: our crew members have as much fun at the events as you do. They’ll play games with you, offer free samples of cool stuff, and even mentor your kids on how to get down the mountains. When you participate in the Vertical Challenge, your family becomes part of ours.

You already know how rewarding it can be to participate in winter sports with your family. So plan to join us for one or more Vertical Challenge tour stops and add some fun competition to your day at the slopes
