The Ski Challenge
The Ski Challenge is a series of recreational ski racing leagues held at Minnesota ski areas, including Hyland. Skiers race against the clock in a giant slalom course to set individual handicaps (based on age, gender and time) and score team points.
The Hyland league accepts skiers aged four and older. Teams can consist of all adults, all kids or mixed ages. Mixed teams cannot qualify for the kids' division at State Championships; however, the team will have an option to qualify in another division. This league allows a maximum of twelve teams. Teams must have six to ten racers. For more information call 952.894.9220.
