Welcome to the 2024 Camel's Hump Challenge!

EVENT UPDATE: 2024 Camel's Hump Challenge Celebration & Gathering
Sunday, March 10th 1-4PM
Cochran's Ski Area 
Food | Incentive Prizes | Skiing 

I'm sure many of you are looking out your window and wondering how it could possibly be February considering the weather we've been having. With the well above average temperatures this week and next, we have no choice but to cancel the skiing portion of the Camel's Hump Challenge. While there may be some parts of the trail that have enough snow, we are certain not all of the trail (especially lower elevation sections) are passable.
We know this is disappointing news and apologize for any inconvenience this is to you and your team. Your support and fundraising efforts are integral to the education programs and support groups at the Alzheimer's Association, Vermont Chapter and Vermonter's impacted by this terrible disease. 
We want to celebrate your incredible fundraising success at a gathering Sunday, March 10th, from 1-4pm at Cochran's Ski Area. They have generously opened their lodge and trails to us in support of this event and cause. We'll have food, all of the fundraising incentive prizes and you'll be able to access the lift for free during that time. We hope you'll consider joining us and celebrating the impact of this event despite the unfortunate winter we've had. 
We'd also like to extend our sincere gratitude to our amazing local sponsors of the 2024 Camel's Hump Challenge!

2024 Champion Announcement

The Camel’s Hump Challenge planning committee, in conjunction with the Vermont Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, is excited to announce the recipient of the 2024 Champion Award – Catherine McIntyre, of Richmond VT. The Champion Award is presented to an individual, team, or group that has provided major contributions to the Challenge during the 37 years of the event’s history. Catherine has participated in the Camel's Hump Challenge since 2018 and has collectively fundraised over $11,000 throughout that time. Not only is Catherine a participant of the Challenge but has been a dedicated volunteer for six years, and plays an integral role in making the Challenge the incredible event that it is.

Like many participants of the Camel’s Hump Challenge, Alzheimer's has had a significant impact on Catherine and her family. To raise money for the Alzheimer Association’s Vermont chapter, Catherine has assembled a team of women, Team Hatchet, each year to go out and complete the Challenge together.

"Skiing the Challenge as always been a highlight of winter for me, as I enjoy the difficulty of the ski tour and feel so grateful all day. I feel grateful to live in Vermont, to have access to the Camel’s Hump backcountry area, for my involvement with the event's planning committee, for my own health, and for the friendship and support of the people I ski with that day. The Challenge is one of those very special days that makes you appreciate all the good things in life,” reflects Catherine.

We can't thank Catherine enough for her contributions to this event year after year and the impact it has on moving our mission forward in our community.
