On the night of March 15-16, 2024, the 4th edition of the Hohsaas 12-Hour Challenge - a unique winter sports challenge in the Swiss mountains - will take place. During this ski and snowboard relay, teams of three will make as many runs as possible within 12 hours. In doing so, participants raise money to make the Mentelity Games possible: the ski resort of Saas-Grund will be made accessible for a week of para-winter sports, so that people with physical challenges can push their limits and enjoy winter sports.
Participation in the 12-hour Challenge is possible for (tour) skiers and snowboarders of different levels, there is a choice of three disciplines: Distance Challenge, Fun Challenge and Tour Challenge. Want to know what that looks like? Check out the after movie below.

Everyone who ever goes on a winter sports trip knows the feeling of freedom when you ski or snowboard down the slopes surrounded by the most beautiful mountain peaks. And this is precisely why winter sports enthusiasts, by participating in the 12-hour Challenge, are committed to helping people with physical challenges experience this feeling as well.
The money raised by participating teams through crowdfunding will be used to organize the Mentelity Games, a unique week in the mountains for people with physical challenges. During the Games, participants learn that they can do more than they think. They push their limits, develop new self-confidence and return home with a new mindset. Where they used to think "Can I do this...?" the experiences during the Mentelity Games help the participants to think in terms of possibilities and they dare to do things they did not do before. Because there is always more possible than meets the eye!
