Where:
Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort, 11 Corey Rd, Hancock, MA 01237

Can YOU ski or ride it?  
This is your chance to ski or snowboard 100K 
in ONE DAY!

On February 27, 2017 come to STRIDE's 100K Vertical Challenge at the Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort in Hancock, MA and test your endurance with 87 runs off the top of the mountain.  And do it for a great cause!  This 12-plus-hour adventure aims to raise funds for and awareness of STRIDE's adaptive sports programs for local individuals with disabilities including youth with special needs and our returning wounded veterans.

Form a relay team of 4 people, or form an ULTRA team of 2 people!

We are also offering a VIRTUAL option for people not in the NY area or for non-skiers/snowboarders.

Event FAQs:

  1. Do I have to be an experienced skier or rider to participate? The ULTRA event requires the completion of 87 runs between two people. Therefore, those attempting it must be experienced skiers or riders. Less experienced skiers/riders are encouraged to join a 4-person team where the 87 runs would be split up amongst more people.  
  2. Is this event a race?  No! The 100K is an endurance challenge and a fundraiser for STRIDE Adaptive Sports. No prizes are given for the individuals or teams that finish first. Safety is our first priority during the 100K, and those who treat the event like a race by tucking or otherwise skiing out of control will not be allowed to complete the event.
  3. If I don’t meet the minimum donation requirements, will I be restricted from participating in the event?  At its heart, the 100K is intended to be a fundraiser, so we established minimum fundraising objectives to ensure we meet that objective. The 100K staff will provide fundraising tips and assistance to help participants meet their minimums. 
  4. Do I have to raise money only from my friends and family or can get I sponsors, such as my work or other businesses?  We encourage participants to seek out corporate sponsors.  We have a list of sponsor levels and benefit packages that are available.  Please contact Jenifer Whiston, Development Director for more information and supporting materials.  (jwhiston[at]stride.org or 518-598-1279).
  5. Is there an age limit for participants?  Yes. To participate in the 100K you must 18 years or older. However, if you are younger than 18 and would still like to get involved, we would love to have your help as a volunteer on the day of the event. Please contact jwhiston[at]STRIDE.org if you are interested in volunteering. 
  6. Is STRIDE Adaptive Sports a registered non-profit?  Yes, STRIDE Adaptive Sports is a registered 501(3) with non-profit status from the IRS. Therefore, all donations made to support your fundraising goals are tax deductible. 
  7. Are we free to ski the entire mountain to complete the 87 runs?  Yes, the entire mountain will be open for qualifying runs. However, the base area of the High Speed Six is where we will be logging runs and is where we will be set up with drinks, snacks, etc.
  8. Are costumes allowed? Absolutely. In fact, they are encouraged.
