The Vertical Challenge Ski and Snowboard Tour has announced its 2022 schedule, which includes multiple stops across the Northeast.
The Vertical Challenge is a series of free ski and snowboard races open to skiers and snowboarders of all ages and abilities. The tour offers adaptive categories and also looks to engage its participants in raising funds for the state chapters of the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the areas it visits.
“We’re pleased to visit 17 of our favorite resorts across seven states,” said Vertical Challenge owner Heather Clifford. “The protocols we put in place last year helped set us up to hold a complete set of races in 2022.”
Vertical Challenge also announced its national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by The Center for Women and Enterprise, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council. Longtime Vertical Challenge contractor-turned-partner Clifford became 100 percent owner of the tour in 2021. She took over for founder Frank Tansey, who remains involved as a consultant.
