Skiers and snowboarders will continue down the Sherburne ski trail to a finish at the AMC Pinkham Notch Visitor Center.

Up to 600 athletes will compete–solo, or in relay teams–for a one-thousand-dollar cash prize, plus various additional prizes, and a chance to become the next Tuckerman or Tuckerwoman champion.
