Last Skier Standing has a new home.
Ski the Whites, a backcountry ski, bike, and run specialty shop in Jackson, N.H., is moving the annual event from its original home the last three years at Black Mountain to…well, Black Mountain. Of Maine.
Last Skier Standing is an endurance ski event for those in search of a personal challenge. Each skier must complete one lap up and down the ski area every hour, on the hour, until there is only one skier left. The record currently stands at 65 hours.
The first three years of the event were held at Black Mountain in Jackson, N.H. But that relationship soured last season when Black Mountain owner John Fichera told Ski the Whites’ Andrew Drummond that his alpine touring operation was no longer welcome at the ski area in Jackson, N.H.
