Skier Kyle Kelly and snowboarder Brad Dykstra will attempt to ski at 22 different ski areas in just 24 hours. The guys are aiming to beat the current Guinness Book of World Record of visiting 17 ski areas in 24 hours.
The attempt will start at 12 PM ET on Saturday, February 26th.
They spoke with a local news agency, about their plan. You can read that original article here.
Kelly and Dykstra are starting their journey at Nub’s Knob in Harbor Springs, MI and finish up Canonsburg Ski Area in Belmont, MI.
Seems like this attempt could only happen in a few states where you have so many small ski areas grouped so close together. New York, Wisconsin, and maybe Tahoe come to mind as other potential locations where this would be feasible.
