The 2019 Heathen Challenge at Sunlight Mt. Resort will play host to the USSMA Worlds Team Qualifier.

This Individual race will determine who qualifies for the USSMA Worlds Team for the “TEAM RACE” discipline.

As always the Heathen challenge (snow permitting) strives to incorporate backcountry skiing and skinning into a ski mountaineering race.

This year we hope to put ever more of the course in the backcountry surrounding Sunlight Mt. For “non-elite” racers you’ve nothing to worry about; if you’re an expert skier and can perform a kick-turn on a steep slope you’ll have a great day of backcountry ski racing. The Sport course is always a great option (and recommended) for first-timers.
