The 5th annual race series, which kicks off this weekend at Alpine Meadows, features skiers or snowboarders charging down a wide-open, ungroomed course four at a time, with each hoping to be the first to the bottom. Jockeying for position adds to the challenge presented by Tahoe’s terrain. Billed as “the ultimate test of ski and riding skills,” catching air while surrounded by other competitors during the mad dash to the bottom is not uncommon.
