The Ben Myers Ridge-A-Thon is a ski/board fundraising event in Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico, scheduled for March 17 & 18, 2017. Now in its 21st year, it attracts snow-adventure-seekers of all ages from across the Southwest and beyond. The pledges gathered support the Emergency Medicines Fund at the Taos Community Foundation.
Paired teams collect pledges leading up to the event, then they hike up and hustle down a menu of runs on Highline Ridge & the West Basin in Taos Ski Valley, just to do it all again, as many times as they want to, racking up a point per run toward their total of RUNS. The runs available are determined by TSV patrol according to snow conditions at the time of the competition. The post-event awards celebration is held at Taos Ski Valley on Saturday at 4pm. Prizes from our sponsors will be given to the top teams in two categories: most FUNDS and most RUNS (alternately).
