THE SKI CHALLENGE began in 1985 as a Twin Cities Metro Area recreational ski racing program allowing adults to ski on teams in a series of races. Approximately 35 participants raced in the first year of the program, today close to 1,200 racers of all ages participate per week. Ski Challenge courses are set for the GS racer. No need for shin guards or face guards. Most racers participate on recreational “cheater” GS skis. Some racers use full blown GS skis. And, some of the females us Jr GS Race skis.
