The 3 Challenges explained

Participation in the 12-hour Challenge is possible for (tour) skiers and snowboarders of various levels. 

With your team you choose the challenge that suits your level and ambitions. During the challenge, one person is always skiing or snowboarding and each team determines its own rhythm for switching. A team basically consists of three people and the distance covered is measured with a GPS tracker, which can be followed by the home front. Each team receives 1 GPS tracker and this is handed over to the next skier or snowboarder as a relay bar each time.

1. Fun Challenge - Triftalp
For personal ambition and team fun on an accessible slope


Set your own goal during the Fun Challenge. Define how many runs you want to make with your team during the 12 hours and challenge yourself to achieve this goal. Speed on the slopes is not the most important thing, because participating is more important than winning. Your motivation lies in the combination of contributing to charity and having fun together and taking on the adventure on the slopes with your teammates.

Winner: A panel of judges will decide which team goes home with the trophy for "Best of Fun." Unleash your creativity and impress with an eye-catching team outfit, an upbeat sound to encourage everyone and show that your team has an unbeatable team spirit.

2. Distance Challenge -Glacier Piste
For competition tigers and advanced winter athletes


As a team, you try to cover as many miles as possible in the 12 hours. It's all about speed, stamina and the right tactics for switching between the three team members, who take turns on the slopes.

Winner: The team (max. 3 participants) with the most miles, wins this challenge.

3. Tour Challenge - Weissmieshütte
For the real daredevils, who prefer not to step into the elevator


Again, it's about covering as many miles as possible in the 12 hours, but without using the elevator. You walk up (with skins under your skis or splitboard) and ski or snowboard down. This challenge is held on a private slope, so you don't have to consider the other participants. You can do this discipline individually or as a team of three.

Winner: Two prizes will be given to the person with the most miles traveled: best team (max. 3 participants) and best solo performance.

In addition, a trophy will be awarded among all participating teams for the best performing crowdfunding campaign.
