Canis Lupus Challenge

On Saturday, March 10, The Canyons will host the Quiksilver Canis Lupus Challenge. In the old days, it was called The Natural (natural half-pipe) and the James Bond trail (for resembling a banked bobsled run). Call it what you will. Canis Lupus is a mile-long gulley that serves up banked walls, turn after turn and whoop-de-doos that will throw you off track if you are not prepared. There will be a few banked slalom gates at the top, then a “not-so-straight shot to the finish.”

Event Details:

Entry Fee is $20 and does not include a lift ticket.

Each competitor will be given one timed run, with the top ski and ride scores competing in the Finals. The best single time will then win. 5 seconds will be added to final time for missed gates. Helmets required.
