Prices do NOT include lift tickets to use the hill – those are purchased from the participating Ski Area.
If you are an existing team, look for an e-mail sent to captains in July. This e-mail will invite captains to hold a team spot for the upcoming season by registering their team and paying a deposit. A deposit consists of payment for one team spot. This deposit is non-refundable even if the team does not end up existing. As an existing team, you have first dibs on your existing spot in your particular race series. After August 31, if the team spot has not been reserved and a deposit has not been received, you may lose your spot. If an existing team is NOT reserved by October 31, it will be eliminated.
If you would like to form a new team, contact the Ski Challenge Office to get your name on the captain e-mail list. You may add your team to any race series that has room. Some race series events may be full unless an existing team does not return. Call 952-894-9220 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are looking for additional racers for your team, you can check out the WAIT LIST. This list consists of individuals looking for a team.
Bibs are ordered November 2.
Bibs will only be ordered for:
- Teams that have reserved their team spot (at least one paid member).
- If only one person has registered by November 2, the captain will be notified prior to bibs being ordered to make sure that a team is actually going to exist.
- If bibs are ordered and the team folds, the $140 deposit will not be returned.
