Which of the three Challenges will you take on?
During the Hohsaas 12 Hour Challenge you can choose from three different Challenges: Distance Challenge, Fun(d)race Challenge or the Tour Challenge. Below you will find more explanation about the different parts:

Distance Challenge
This section is for the real "race tigers. Each team tries to cover as many kilometers as possible in the 12 hours. The team that covers the most kilometers wins this challenge. It's all about speed, endurance and the right tactics for switching the three team members, who take turns on the slopes.

Fun(d)race Challenge:
Set your own goal during the Fun(d)race Challenge: For example, define how many runs you want to make with your team during the 12 hours and challenge yourself with an ambitious goal amount for your crowdfunding. The Fun(d)race Challenge is about fun, fundraising and skiing/snowboarding. Speed on the slopes is not the most important thing, because participating is more important than winning. Your motivation lies in the combination of contributing to charity, pushing your own limits and taking on the adventure on the slopes, together with your teammates.

After your team is complete, choose a goal together. Are you going for a minimum number of laps on the track or the title "Best Crowdfunders"? Of course, you can also combine these two objectives and let friends, family or companies sponsor you per lap. This way you challenge yourself not to sit still during the 12 hours, but to keep going. After all, every lap is extra money for charity. In 2022, the team averaged 59 descents during the 12 hours (most 80, least 29).

Tour Challenge:
For the adventurer who prefers not to use the elevator. Again, it's about covering as many miles as possible in the 12 hours, but without using the gondola. You walk up (with skins under your skis or your snowboard on your back) and ski or snowboard down. The course for this challenge is a different one than the distance challenge, so you don't have to consider participants from the other challenges. You can do this discipline individually or as a team.

Mentelity Games
During the Hohsaas 12-hour Challenge we are raising money for the organization of the Mentelity Games, an initiative of Bibian Mentel's Mentelity Foundation. It is the winter sports trip for people with physical challenges. Together we let them enjoy the snow again and literally get them moving. The positive experiences they gain in Switzerland they take home with them, giving them more self-confidence in life. It's all about Mentelity!
