Skiers, artists, families, and visitors are invited to spend a day at Taos Ski Valley in support of this important cause.

22nd ANNUAL BEN MYERS RIDGE-A-THON

Fri, March 16 - Sat, March 17

Join us for the 22nd Annual Ben Myers Ridge-A-Thon at Taos Ski Valley on March 16th & 17th, 2018!

What Is It: The Ben Myers Ridge-A-Thon is a ski/board fundraising event in Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico, scheduled for March 16 & 17, 2018. Now in its 22nd year, it attracts snow-adventure-seekers of all ages from across the Southwest and beyond. The pledges gathered support the Emergency Medicines Fund at the Taos Community Foundation.

The Ridge-A-Thon Story:  Ridge-A-Thon was initiated in 1997 to assist with medical expenses for the family of Ben Myers. Ben was a local extreme skier who passed away tragically from cancer at age 26. Ben is still so fondly remembered by his community and each year we take the time to continue the event in order to help others.

How It Works: Paired teams collect pledges leading up to the event, then they hike up and hustle down a menu of runs on Highline Ridge & the West Basin in Taos Ski Valley, just to do it all again, as many times as they want to, racking up a point per run toward their total of RUNS. The runs available are determined by TSV patrol according to snow conditions at the time of the competition. The post-event awards celebration is held at Taos Ski Valley on Saturday at 4pm. Prizes from our sponsors will be given to the top teams in two categories: most FUNDS and most RUNS (alternately). 

Registration will open soon.

Time: 9:00 AM


CANCELED - TAOS FREERIDE CHAMPIONSHIPS

Wed, February 28 - Sat, March 03

It is with great sadness that we must announce that the difficult decision to cancel the Taos 2 and 4* Freeride World Qualifying (FWQ) events for the 2018 season.

As many who have competed in the Taos Freeride events over the years at Taos Ski Valley can attest, safety is the most important priority for our competitions and a key component of this is the condition of the event venues.

After a careful review of our existing snowpack along with the potential for additional storms was done by our snow-safety and mountain operations staff, it has been determined that the venues would not be able to host a freeride event with conditions that would provide a safe and fun environment for competitors. Given this analysis, Taos Freeride will not be happening this season.

We understand that many athletes, along with fans of freeriding and the larger skiing community, will be disappointed with this news. However, we also know that everyone would prefer to see the event take place in a safe and responsible manner, which, given the cards dealt to the Ski Valley by Mother Nature, isn’t possible during the scheduling window for the event.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back in Taos in 2019 and appreciate your understanding.

If you have any questions please contact Kaela, kaela.gillum@skitaos.com.

 

Time: 9:00 AM
