ATTN: Due to growing concerns over health and safety issues resulting from the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are sorry to let you know that the Master of the Mountain event schedule for this weekend has been canceled.  We appreciate your enthusiastic support for The River Fund and it's mission to support local youth. 

This ski enduro/rally style event is unlike any other challenge in the world! It combines the excitement of downhill skiing with the precision of a timed road rally, all while raising money to support the youth in our communities. Only one winner will be crowned 2020 Master of the Mountain.

During the Master of the Mountain Challenge, participants are asked to ski to a series of check points on Sunday River slopes. This timed event aims for contestants to ski certain trails at a controlled aggressive pace. The goal is to come as close to the predetermined target time without going faster than the posted time. Target times will be posted on the top of each run.
