Vertical Challenge

How it works

  1. On March 11, check-in begins at 8:30 AM at the Base Camp Conference Room.
  2. Start tracking the pow! The Vertical Challenge begins at 10 AM.
  3. Carve to a stop! Every vertical foot counts until 3 PM Pacific Time. You have the entire mountain to carve out your own adventure.
  4. Submit your vertical feet HERE by 3pm.
  5. Rip your way to après, winners will be announced during the après party!

How to track your vertical feet
There are several options! SKI for MS does not endorse one app over another.

  • Use a watch (Suunto, Apple, Garmin, etc.). Just show us your watch totals!
  • Go old school. Count your runs and use a map of the mountain to calculate your vertical feet. We trust you!
