It's back! We're thrilled to announce that the 4th Annual Rex Foundation Fire on the Mountain Vertical Challenge takes place in Squaw Valley April 6, and registration is now open!  

It's a chance to spend an epic day on the slopes with your friends, party in the evening to great music, and support Rex's ongoing work. After the race, relax at the apres-ski party and BBQ, with music by our friends Achilles Wheel Trio. There's more--your ticket also includes admission to the Friday night music lineup of  of WinterWonderGrass.

Plan on sticking around, as WinterWonderGrass Tahoe continues throughout the weekend with an incredible lineup that includes headliners The Infamous Stringdusters (Friday), The Devil Makes Three (Saturday) and Railroad Earth (Sunday). Tickets now on sale!

The Fire on the Mountain Vertical Challenge is not just a race, but a test of your endurance and strategy, where successful teams will ski/ride in excess of 100,000 vertical feet! Once you ski on all compulsory runs, take your pick of lifts and terrain to rack up vertical and enjoy one of the finest mountains in the world.  All proceeds will go to Rex. 

If you've taken part in the past, you already know about the great skiing, food, music, and camaraderie. If not, check out a few scenes from last year's event to get an idea.

Early Bird pricing is in effect through March 11, so don't delay! Save the date, round up your friends, sign up, and make plans for a great day on the slopes with us in support of Rex. See you there!
