Winter Park Resort | Winter Park, CO
February 24th- 26th, 2023
2023 commemorates the 47th consecutive year for the Wells Fargo Ski Cup! The Wells Fargo Ski Cup boasts the longest running professional ski race in the country and serves as a signature fundraiser for the National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD).
Friday, Day One – Wells Fargo Ski Cup Weekend Begins:
All guests and athletes will arrive at Winter Park Resort.
AEC Challenge Race: Architects, Engineers and Contractors compete in an industry specific race, with the goal of winning the coveted “Outrigger Trophy” and bragging rights! AEC sponsors enjoy a private VIP lunch on Friday. All AEC racers will also compete with the full range of sponsors teams in the Wells Fargo Corporate Challenge on Saturday.
Also on Friday, Corporate Challenge race teams take their qualifying runs. All racers MUST complete a qualifying run on Friday or Saturday morning of the event weekend. Racers are also encouraged to take advantage of our racer clinic with one of our NSCD Competition Center coaches. This is a great opportunity to get tips on racing technique. There is also a chance to experience hitting the slopes like one of our Competition Center athletes by demoing a sit ski.
On Friday night, Corporate Challenge teams come together for a racer dinner. The Friday night dinner is an opportunity for all teams to mingle and meet with the NSCD athlete who will be on their team for the Corporate Challenge.
Saturday, Day Two – The Corporate Challenge:
The Corporate Challenge is the highlight of the event weekend. All teams are randomly grouped into heats. The top nine teams compete in the semi-finals and the top three teams move on to the finals. The NSCD Competition Center athlete on the top three teams win a cash prize to help them finance their training for the 2026 Winter Paralympics.
Sunday, Day Three – Kids Snowplow Sprint and the World Disabled Invitational:
On Sunday the kids get in on the action! Kids of Wells Fargo Ski Cup guests, ages 5-12, race the same course as the professionals and are joined by mascots from Winter Park and Colorado sports teams in the Kids Snowplow Sprint.
Capping off the weekend on Sunday is the World Disabled Invitational, where professional athletes from around the world compete for cash prizes in a race unlike any other.
