Talons Challenge

You VS. 26,226 vertical feet

All of us more or less try to do good for mankind: protect the environment, support those in need, plan for a better tomorrow, while passing down what we have learned to future generations.  Do you like to challenge yourself while inspiring others to do good, to be better, to be an example, a template, a subject to be followed?!

Are you up for the challenge?

This year the 16th Annual Beaver Creek Talons Challenge pits you against 26,226 feet of black and double black diamond terrain while doing good for others.

The Talons Challenge is presented by Helly Hansen, supported by Michelob Ultra and Nature Valley.

Come out and join us on February 23rd, 2019 (8:30 AM -6:00 PM MST)  in Beaver Creek to complete 14 black and double black diamond runs totaling over 26,000 vertical feet!

Get your name on the official Talons Challenge board and have fun! It’s a marathon, not a sprint! A time to mingle with our sponsors, grab some gear and socialize with other challengers throughout the day.  Plus the official Talons Challenge after party is full of additional entertainment and giveaways!

Registration includes your access to the Talons Challenge, lanyard and credential for tracking your runs, special 16th Edition Talons Challenge swag and food. Lift ticket is not included in registration*.

For the fourth year in a row, you can purchase the Ultimate Talon limited edition package. In addition to the perks of the standard Talons Challenge registration, your Ultimate Talon purchase includes a commemorative Talons Challenge 90L Duffel Bag from Helly Hansen (a $140 value), a $40 donation to SOS Outreach and discounted drinks at the village après event.

The Talons Challenge benefits the SOS Outreach program. SOS works with underserved youth in our community teaching adventure sports (like skiing and snowboarding) while passing along our core values and leadership development. This year, dedicate your Talons Challenge to helping SOS spread the love!
