Dear Friends and Supporters of the Extreme Everest Challenge - Our gratitude for the support you've shown for this event over the past five years is beyond expression.
During that time, we've seen more than 500 challengers push themselves to achieve their goals, and you've all helped make the EEC a fun, successful and fulfilling event for both the participants and the organizers.
With all that said, unfortunately we’ve had to cancel the Extreme Everest Challenge for 2017. This has been a tough decision for the committee given how much we look forward to the even each year. As a group, we plan to review the event to determine how best to proceed in future years. We continue to believe in the Extreme Everest Challenge and the causes we’ve contributed to, and hope that a year-off will provide us with a renewed focus going forward.
Thank you all for your continued support!
On March 11-12, 201, the ski industries most bad assed fitness freaks and mountain enthusiasts will take part in a 24 hour showdown to prove who is the king of the hill at the Smithers BC Extreme Everest Challenge.
Traditionally, skiers and snowboarders must complete 18 runs on the skyline chair, achieving a cumulative vertical of approximately 8850 vertical meters – the height of Mount Everest. If descending amazing northwestern powder isn’t enough, the toughest can opt for the touring category- in Honor of Rod Leighton, skinning up and skiing down as many times as possible in 24 hours.
