Helly Hansen's Big Mountain Battle is a family-friendly competition that tests not only your skiing ability but your knowledge of Park City Mountain Resort's terrain. This competition is made up of mandatory chairlifts you must ride, mandatory runs you must ski from the top to the bottom, and checkpoints that you must find and pass within five feet of (the length of a ski pole). Keeping you honest is a Flaik GPS device strapped to your ankle.
The Big Mountain Battle is divided into two divisions. The intermediate division focuses more on the resort's blue terrain and adventure alleys. The advanced division features two of Park City Mountain Resort's classic hikes as well as some of our steepest groomers. This division is sure to challenge even the most die-hard skiers and riders.
At the end of the day, each team will receive a print out from the GPS device which shows the details of your team's performance including top speed. The winners from both divisions will receive $2,000 in H/H merchandise as well as the knowledge that they are the most radical duo on the mountain! There will be prizes for fastest timed hike and plenty of others just for participating, not to mention a free H/H baselayer top just for participating.
