- 8th Annual Year for the Vertical Challenge at Snowbasin
- Bob Aamodt, the originator of the event, is an avid skier, outdoorsman and scouter. He wanted to put together a winter fundraiser for the scout program, and came up with the Vertical Challenge. There are several golf tournaments during the year but nothing in the winter months.
- All the funds raised go directly to the ScoutReach progam which benefits inner city youth programs such as Youth Impact, YMCA and the Boys & Girls Clubs. These funds will help provide the opportunity for these youth to attend summer camp and various activities and programs.
- Teams or 4, or individuals, ski or snowboard as many vertical feet as they can in a certain time period. They are required to complete a certain amount of specified runs then can keep on going as long as they want.
- Each participant will receive a lift pass, lunch voucher, Marker Zip-T and swag bag. At the end of the event, we have an awards ceremony and raffle drawings.
