Event Information

The extreme race of legend and lore will bring out champions of ski and snowboard racing, big mountain pros, and a healthy dose of amateur skiers and snowboarders who aren’t afraid to charge. With over 2500 Vertical Feet of Thigh Burning Hell - quite possibly the steepest ski race in the world - this is a true test of fitness, skill, balance and courage!

Follow up the race with an Afterparty and Awards ceremony at the Longhorns Saloon.

Important Changes to 2022 Race

As this event was a late edition due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation there will not be any prize money pool this year. The reduced price of this event reflects this change. 

There will not be a separate pro or amateur categories for this race. Ski and Snowboard Age Categories are open to anyone who is ready to test themselves in the Saudan Couloir.

We are extremely fortunate to be able to bring this event back this season and will still have podium prizing available from our sponsors.
