2nd Annual Fire on the Mountain
Vertical Challenge


We’re delighted to announce  The 2nd Annual  Fire on the Mountain Vertical Challenge ski race, taking place in Squaw Valley on Friday, April 1, 2016.

It’s not just a race, but a test of endurance and strategy, where successful teams will ski/ride in excess of 100,000 vertical feet. Once all compulsory runs are skied, racers can take their pick of lifts and terrain to rack up vertical and enjoy one of the finest mountains in the world.  All proceeds will go to The Rex Foundation, with 50% of donations being allocated to charities local to the Olympic Valley / Truckee area.

You can join as a team, or sign up individually and we’ll place you on a team. Your race ticket includes a continental breakfast at Bar One starting at 7:30 a.m. Then it’s off to the slopes — race starts when the lifts open at 9 a.m.

After the race, Achilles Wheel Trio (Jonny Mojo, Paul Kamm, and Shelby Snow) provides the tunes for a gathering at Bar One. A silent auction benefiting Rex includes Grateful Dead related pieces and other great items.

Then, the party continues, as your race ticket includes VIP access to Friday’s WinterWonderGrass shows, with Greensky Bluegrass, Scott Law and Ross James as Cosmic Twang, and lots more. Bask in the comfort of the VIP side-stage seating area, complete with fire pits, heat lamps, and exclusive food and beverage offerings.

Tickets now on sale at Eventbrite. Early bird rates end February 29!
