Coming up this weekend, at Berkshire East, this Saturday, March 6, 2021
It's the Vertical Challenge is a series of free casual ski and snowboard races held at ski resorts throughout the northeast during each winter season.

It is a fun time for the whole family with skiing, music, sampling, Awards, and victory party kick-off.

Skiers and snowboarders are divided by gender and age to compete for gold, silver, and bronze medals in each category. In addition to the races, attendees enjoy a festival element, featuring snowy activities for all ages, plus prizes given away throughout a fun day at the mountain.

The crew members have as much fun at the events as you do. Your family becomes part of the Vertical Challenge family when you participate.

Over our 30 years of operation, VC made it a priority to make a difference in the lives of their attendees.

Vertical Challenge mentors their crew and they, in turn, mentor our young participants. They help an eight-year-old overcome trepidation about her first ski race; They show a child how they can help other kids through school fundraisers; They adopt families, often forming bonds that last well beyond the day at the slopes. Multiple generations have made the Vertical Challenge an influential part of their lives.

The Vertical Challenge is dedicated to making a difference in children’s lives by creating a positive environment and outstanding event experience in which organizers can serve as mentors to participants and their families.
