The event takes racers down the Saudan Couloir, a double-black run on Blackcomb Mountain that’s been called one of the “9 Most Terrifying Ski Slopes in the World.” The race and run are named after Swiss extreme skier Sylvain Saudan, nicknamed the “skier of the impossible.” The race, which started back in 1987, is a festival highlight, bringing out the legends of ski racing, big mountain pros, and a healthy dose of amateur skiers who aren’t afraid to charge down 2,500 vertical feet of thigh-burning Hell.
Billed as the steepest ski race in the world, the Saudan Couloir Ski Race Extreme presented by Kokanee is the stuff of Whistler legend. Registration will open January 2019
