The 2011 Equinox Ski Challenge will be held March 19-20 at the Rendezvous Ski Trails in West Yellowstone.
The event is a springtime celebration, a season finale and an opportunity for skiers to challenge themselves to new levels. It is focused on camaraderie and commitment to the well-being of the local community. Skiers of all abilities are welcome.
Racers complete as many laps as they can in the time division they choose: 3-hour, 6-hour, 12-hour and 24-hour catagories. Racers may enter as soloists or as members of a relay team of up to 8 members.
Before March 1, registration is $55/adult or $30/junior. Between March 1-March 15, the fee is $75/adult and $50/junior. Race-day registration is $90/adult and $60/junior. Registration discounts are available for racers who also volunteer at the race or who bring someone along to volunteer for them. Registration is free for kids under 12 participating in a 24-minute kids’ race.
The event includes a Saturday evening potluck and an all-night bonfire at the start/finish line.
Proceeds from the race benefit the West Yellowstone Ski Education Foundation (WYSEF) and Manaia Youth Programs. Participants are also encouraged to bring food donations for the West Yellowstone Food Bank.
