Vertical Challenge at Liberty Mountain!

The Vertical Challenge is a special race series that is open to all ages and ability levels. This is a family friendly event, if you can make turns on an easy blue slope, you can participate! A dual Giant Slalom course will be set up on Lower Blue Streak. Skiers and snowboarders are divided by gender and age group to compete for gold, silver, and bronze medals in each category. In addition to the race, prizes are given away throughout the day. The course is easily accessed and viewed from the main Base Area. Participation in the race is FREE, but a lift ticket purchase is required.
