Thanks to everyone for a great season! It takes a lot of people, places, and moving parts to make everything work! Mother Nature finally agreed with us this year by giving us Winter! The conditions were good and the temps rarely went above 32 or below 0! The on hill crews and Ski Challenge staff at Buck Hill and Wild Mountain worked hard to bring everyone a quality program for all abilities and race levels.
2017-18 By the Numbers
For the 2017
season we ended up with
racers starts. We tried something different this past preseason by cutting back to two weeks of racing. This avoided having to cancel the first week due to lack of winter weather and snow cover.
The total number of racer starts for our
Regular, seven week league series was
6,615. This was number was up about 1% from the year before.
Ski Challenge helped put on the
Padraig's Place Ski Race Benefit
at Buck Hill on Saturday, February 10. A total of
82 racers participated.
