SKI FOR STARS 

Participating in the Challenge is as easy as 1, 2, 3!  Form a team today! Teams should be a minimum of 4, or up to 10 individuals and can be groups of family members and friends, business colleagues, alumni, Veterans, and neighbors.  Each team will be paired with an Olympian, Paralympian, or elite athlete to complete a series of fun on mountain challenges. Top fundraisers and competitors will win prizes.  An overall team champion trophy will also be awarded. 

In addition to being an excellent fundraiser, the STARS Mountain Challenge is a ton of fun. It’s a special time during the year when Olympic and Paralympic athletes, supporters, volunteers, and participants are gathered together, so we are able to celebrate as a whole community. Whether as a team member, a sponsor, or individual who provides pledges – we hope you will consider supporting us in reaching for the STARS!

We are grateful for the support of volunteers, businesses, corporations and individual fundraisers and contributors that make all of this possible.

Join us in Reaching for the STARS!  Together, let’s make the mountain shine with stars.  March 2nd will be a fun event not to be missed.
