The Mothership Classic is a pledge driven event held each Spring on the worlds greatest chairlift, KT22.

Participants begin by gathering pledges like a Nascar racer chasing sponsorships. On the day of the event, each participant will challenge themselves to hot lap KT22 as many times as possible from first chair to last on skinny skis, retro snowboards, mono skis, snow blades, etc. Nostalgic ski attire is encouraged.
Awards are given out for a variety of categories including: Most laps, most money raised, best costume, raddest goggles, etc.

All funds raised go directly to the healing efforts of athletes that have suffered life-altering injuries via The High Fives Foundation.
