2024 Stratton Summit Challenge

August 10 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us on August 10th, 2024 for the 3rd annual Stratton Summit Challenge! The open race follows the work road from the base of the gondola to the top of Stratton Mountain, 1750 vertical feet. You can race your heart out against the best in the world OR take your time– everyone is welcome.  On top you will get spectacular views and a ride back down on the gondola.  There is also a kids race that goes about 1/3 of the way up and finishes at mid-mountain. If you are staying for the Q & A, bring food or grab some lunch at one of the awesome resort restaurants!


9:20am- Kids Race (from Base to Mid-Mountain)

9:40am- Open Race (from Base to Top)

10:00am- Gondola opens, spectators are welcome to ride up for free!  You’ll want to be on the first chair to see the action.  

11:00am to 12:00pm- Athlete meet and greet, autographs, posters, prizes, raffle awards, Q and A

You can also sign up virtually this year and tackle the 1750 vertical feet (2249 meters) somewhere else in the world! Virtual participants who tag us in a video on race day will receive an autographed Jessie Diggins photo card in the mail.

This event showcases the SMST2 team– our professional cross country ski team that lives and trains in the Stratton area. This team includes athletes who have earned medals at World Junior Championships, U23 World Championships, World Championships and the Olympics.  All proceeds from the race go to the SMST2 team to help them with their travel expenses throughout the season.
