Get involved and give everyone an equal chance!

Saas-Grund, Switzerland | March 15-16, 2024

Around 60 teams will start at 00:00 a.m. on the slopes of Saas-Grund. They take on the challenge of skiing or snowboarding in relay for 12 hours; pushing their own limits and raising money for people with physical challenges. The teams of the 12-hour Challenge choose the challenge that matches their ambitions (Fun, Distance or Tour) and each team needs to raise a minimum of €1,500 through crowdfunding. This funding will finance the Mentelity Games: an unforgettable week in the mountains, where people with physical challenges develop new strengths.

"On my first descent, I finally felt the feeling of freedom again. I could only cry with happiness."

Terry Copper

"How cool that we're all here together, I feel like I'm skiing by myself and that gives me a sense of freedom. 

Challenge yourself!

By pushing your own limits, you also make this possible for someone dealing with a physical disability, or rather, a physical challenge. With your crowdfunding, you contribute to a participant of the Mentelity Games gaining new experiences, developing new self-confidence, gathering new strength for a better and more active life, and above all, enjoying winter sports.

The 12-hour Challenge starts at midnight (on the night of March 15-16), so for the first few hours you ski or snowboard in the dark (there are lights on the slopes at a few points). After a few hours you will see the sun rise between the 4,000-meter peaks of Saas-Grund. An amazing experience!
