Rules & Guidelines

Teams and Parties

Teams should stay together for the whole race. Time may be added for teams who separate. Additional RMA volunteers/staff may be added to specific teams who need assistance on the slopes.

Safety First

Your safety at this event is our number 1 priority.  If you have any concerns, please consult with RMA before registering. While racing around the mountain, please be aware of all other skiers and riders around you. ShredAbility event participants must wear a helmet. Follow the Alpine Responsibility Code at all times.

Follow the Clues

Each team will follow different clues based on their level (Green/Blue/Black). While it may be tempting to follow other teams that seem ahead, this may not be in your best interest! Each clue will be numbered, so be sure to follow them in order!


The race will start after you are given your first clue, at which point the race timer will start the time. When you have finished the hunt, please check in with the race timer (location disclosed on the last clue). They will register your end time.


There will be three Challenge Zones throughout the hunt, and you will be led to their locations via your clues. Upon arriving at each Challenge Zone, check in with an RMA volunteer to record your arrival time. Your race time will be paused while you hear the instructions and complete the challenge. Each challenge zone will be individually timed, and prizes will be awarded to teams with the fastest completion time at each challenge zone! Your overall race time will restart when you complete the challenge and are presented with the next clue.


All sponsorship donations will be added to you total fundraising amount. Please note that self donations to your own team will be added to your total but will be excluded from counting towards the Highest Fundraiser Award. The cut off for all donations is April 30, 2024.


We all need to ask for help sometimes! If you need help with a clue, visit the RMA Tent (located outside the RMA shed in the Village area) or call/text us at 403-431-1354. Each time you request assistance with a clue, a time penalty may be applied.


Get ready for our Challenge Zones! Each challenge is designed to test your team while imitating how it feels to be an adaptive guest. When your team arrives at the challenge zone, your overall race time will be paused while you complete the challenge.  Each team will select two team shredders to attempt each challenge. You may attempt each challenge up to three times with the same or different team members. BUT, each time a new attempt is made, your previous time will be deleted (even if it was faster!) There are prizes for the quickest teams in this challenge!

Nordic Sit Ski

Back by popular demand, shredders will be tasked with using a Nordic Sit Ski. Two teammates will pair up, choose a sit ski, and propel themselves forward using the shortened Nordic ski poles. At the halfway point, the second team member will help the first get out of the sit-ski, turn it around, and pole back to the start/finish line in the quickest time possible.

Did you know? Nordic sit skis have a metal frame with a seat that is mounted on cross country skis. Depending on the shape of the frame, the skier’s legs extend in either a straight or bent position. Skiers push themselves through the snow with shortened ski poles.

Visual Impairment

Experience what it’s like to be visually impaired on the ski hill! One teammate will assist a blindfolded partner in navigating a short obstacle course, picking up an item to bring back to the start/finish line, and putting on one piece of equipment.

Up for an extra challenge? Guide your partner only using auditory cues and make it a “No Hands” challenge!

Did you know?  Most VI riders use a guide to help navigate the slopes. For beginners or those with increased vision, the guide may remain in front, whereas other individuals may prefer the guide to stay behind, orienting the skier with verbal descriptions and instructions – with the additional use of a mouth-to-ear head set. 

Sit-Ski & 3-Track Challenge

We’ve combined two different adaptive ski styles with a Sit-Ski & 3-track challenge! Two team members will participate in this challenge. One team member will be in a sit-ski, while the other will test their balance 3-tracking. Both team members will test their balance by raising one outrigger at a time and balancing for 10 seconds per side. Next, teammates will need to work together to pass a beach ball back and forth four (4) times total before receiving their next clue!

Did you know? Outriggers are used by a variety of folks including those who sit-ski, 3-track, or 4-track! They come in different lengths and can be adjusted to each individual person’s needs.
