Cody's Challenge, the largest randonee ski race in North America, will be held again this year at Steamboat Ski Resort. Cody's Challenge allows participants the unique opportunity to climb, traverse, and descend a variety of trails across the mountain under their own power through the use of specialized bindings and skins. The Cody St. John Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in memory of Cody St. John, who was a professional patroller with the Steamboat Ski Area.
The cost is $70 for those who pre-register, and $80 for day-of registration. Race day registration will be held at Bear River Bar & Grill from 7:00 -7:45 a.m. with the gondola loading promptly at 8:00 a.m. The race will start at 8:30 a.m. at Thunderhead Lodge. You can register online here.
Post-race lunch, awards ceremony and scholarship announcements will be held a Slopeside Grill with live music. All profits go to provide scholarships to assist Professional Ski Patrollers in furthering medical education.
