Championships at Giants Ridge

March 2, 3, and 4, 2018 at Giants Ridge. 

Championships at Giants Ridge is a fun filled weekend of racing which all Ski Challenge teams can participate in.  Championships is not a required weekend, but it's a weekend not to be missed.  

Every team is placed in a division with like scoring teams making each division a fun, close competition for all teams.  All team racing takes place on Saturday and Sunday on Innsbruck.  Divisions will be determined base on your week 5 rosters.  Divisions will be posted at week 6.

We also have an open Team Race on Friday that takes place on Innsbruck.  Saturday we offer an open Individual Race held on Helsinki (King and Queen of the Hel).  Helsinki is a little steeper, more challenging run, but all are welcome to participate.  We may add an additional, optional race on Sunday which will take place on Helsinki.  Stay tuned for more information.

We have great prizes to win throughout the weekend at the various events.  We hope to see everyone there!

Looking for a team to join?
Haute Cocoa - BHSAT
We still have room on teams in all of our leagues.

If you are interested in joining an additional league, or are new to Ski Challenge, we can place you on a team.  Most of our leagues have teams that have openings.  Week 5 is the last week you can join a team.

Contact the Ski Challenge Office for more information. 

Call:  952-894-9220 
You are allowed to guest race two times per regular season race league. The fee is $15.

If you plan on racing more than twice for a specific league and there are still open spots on teams, you will need to join the league. If all spots in the entire league are filled, then you may race as a guest more than twice per league.

Please note - Free TRY-ITs are for racers who have never tried Ski Challenge. Try-its are not for racers who have guest raced before in Ski Challenge


There are no refunds issued by The Ski Challenge. If someone on your team drops out, or gets hurt, a replacement must be found. The replacement person pays the member who originally paid. If a replacement cannot be found, there is still no refund from Ski Challenge. When a participant (adult or child) withdraws from the program we are left with an opening that was being held for them, possibly turning away other racers. Ski Challenge will attempt to assist you with finding a new member.
Team photos will be taken at Buck Hill this Monday, Tuesday and Thursday

Featured Sponsor
Walser Nissan Burnsville
Vehicle Sponsor at Buck Hill
Ski Challenge welcomes Walser Nissan as the new Vehicle Sponsor for our Buck Hill Leagues for the 2018 season! Located just minutes from Buck Hill north on Buck Hill Road in Burnsville, Walser Nissan offers our Buck Hill racers a convenient location to shop for a vehicle.

When you stop by Walser Nissan Burnsville in Burnsville, you are treated to a new way of car-buying. The sales team is determined to pair you with the perfect new Nissan, or help you to browse the selection of used and Certified Pre-Owned Nissan models. Thanks to Walser's Best Price upfront, you can spend less time haggling and more time test-driving the new or used sedan, SUV, truck or minivan that's best suited for you.

If you'd like to keep your Nissan running well for years to come, stop by the Burnsville Nissan service center for routine maintenance like oil changes, brake inspections and other types of service. If you require more serious Nissan repairs, their factory-trained technicians can take care of that, too. They stock a variety of OEM Nissan parts to ensure that repairs to your vehicle are made in a timely manner. Walser Nissan is also well-equipped to service models of other makes, so you can be confident visiting us no matter what you drive.

Look for the Ski Challenge Nissan Rogue parked at Buck Hill (and at Wild Mountain) throughout the season!
