The Vertical Challenge is a blast for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities in Adaptive, Alpine, Telemark, Alpine Touring (if skinning up), and Snowboard categories. The highest number of vertical feet traveled on skis or snowboard wins!
$60 per person (or $30 if you don't need a lift ticket) entry fee to the Vertical Challenge will help fund Colorado Discover Ability's outdoor programs for people with disabilities.
Raise Money to Enter
You can pay the minimum entry fee or you can raise more than a minimum entry fee to help us fund the programs for people with disabilities. Who could you approach to raise money? Ask your family, friends, co-workers, or your boss. You'd be surprised how many people know and support Colorado Discover Ability and they would be glad to support your efforts.
Vertical Challenge Location
The Vertical Challenge takes place at Powderhorn Mountain Resort using any of the three lifts and its official runs.
Prizes will be awarded for the best costume and the most vertical in the Adaptive, Alpine, Telemark, Alpine Touring (if skinning up), and Snowboard categories.
