The Ski Challenge organizes recreational skiers into race leagues. Each league has 10-16 teams with ten skiers per team. The regular series includes seven weeks of league racing, ending with an Individual Championship (by invitation) and a Team Championship. All teams from all leagues are invited to compete at the championship. The Ski Challenge also offers a three week pre-season league in December.


No experience is necessary, only the desire to have fun! Anyone may join a league as an individual, with a friend or two, or start a new team (on a space available basis). Members join a league and race in that league (same time, day and area) for the entire seven week series, or three week series in December.


Wild Mountain has three Sunday leagues (10:00am, 1:00pm and 4:30pm), a Friday afternoon league (1:30pm) and a Wednesday night league (7:30pm). For registration information go to the Ski Challenge website, or call the Ski Challenge office at 952-894-9220.
