The Challenge

Are you up for the challenge? The 16th Annual Beaver Creek Talons Challenge pits you against 26,226 feet of black and double black diamond terrain.

Complete the challenge to receive the bragging rights of your name up on the Official Talon's Competitors board! Celebrate your accomplishment with the official après after party at Talon's restaurant, where you can enjoy complimentary food, drinks and take in the view of the incredible terrain you just conquered.

The Talons Challenge benefits SOS Outreach, a program that supports undeserved youth in our community by teaching adventure sports (like skiing and snowboarding) alongside a core value and leadership development curriculum.
