RacingWhat is the Skier/Boarder X Challenge?
Whether you are in your first season or your 10th, the 2011 Natives Workers Challenge series is a great opportunity for you and your friends to sample the adrenalin rush of skier/boarder X.

Each race day starts with an individual time trial on the course. We then use these times to seed competitors for the head-to-head rounds when 3 or 4 riders battle it out to the next heat.

It's a lot of fun, suitable for intermediates and above, and you never know, you might even win some of our amazing prizes from our generous sponsors...
