24 Hours of Schweitzer 

24 hours of Schweitzer is a unique opportunity to ski and ride Schweitzer Mountain Resort for a full 24 hours. Teams will ski and ride while completing hourly challenges for team points that exist all over the resort. Challenges can be as simple as building a snowman or as hard as crossing a slack line in your ski boots. All challenges promise to be exciting and fun and keep you skiing for a full 24 hours. Your team decides how to best tackle the 24 hours to gain maximum points. Teams will ski and ride for prizes, bragging rights and most importantly fundraising for Cystinosis research and Hank’s future. On Saturday evening after the event there is an awards party and auction that includes food from around the world.

Limited to 200 participants.
