The idea of the Skinny Ski-A-Thon is simple: get people to pledge $$/lap and ski as many laps as you can on skinny skis (70mm or less) down the KT-22 at Squaw Valley, USA.
Last year, Squaw Valley’s Greg Lindsey won the Skinny Ski-A-Thon with 46 laps on KT-22. I think there was some powder around last year possibly making the conditions a bit more fun then they’ll be on KT tomorrow. Tomorrow might feature some hard/icy snow in the morning followed by sticky rained-on hot slush in the afternoon. 46 laps might not be as realistic tomorrow, but you never know….these guys are good.

Squaw Valley, CA – The skinny ski-a-thon is all about supporting a great cause while having a great day on KT-22. Participants will first get pledges from family, friends and businesses for each lap they ski. They will then strap on a pair of skinny skis (70mm or less) and see how many laps they can complete in a day. Participants will raise money for each completed lap and also gather flat donations with proceeds going to the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation.
