Family Tournament

January 14, 2024 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Family Tournament originated as the Father-Son race and dates back to 1942 when it was originally held on the flanks of Mount Mansfield (Stowe). In its modern form, it is a race open to anyone who wants to participate. Racers complete a family-friendly GS course where a racer’s best time from two runs (attempts) is counted. The time is then added together with other family members (by blood relationship) in the following categories and prizes are awarded. In some cases, there are coveted trophies that live permanently at MRG for all to admire. The Family Tournament is the first leg of the MRG Racing Triple Crown.


  • Father-Son
  • Mother-Daughter
  • Mother-Son
  • Father-Daughter
  • Husband-Wife
  • Grandmother-Granddaughter
  • Grandfather-Grandson
  • Grandfather-Granddaughter
  • Grandmother-Grandson
  • Brother-Sister
  • Brother-Brother
  • Sister-Sister
  • And Grand Family


The MRG Racing Triple Crown combines three celebrated legacy events and crowns an overall category champions!

    1. The Family Tournament is a family-friendly event where a competitor’s result is added together with other family members’ individual results to complete scoring and celebrate the fastest family combo.
    2. The storied Kandahar is MRG’s modern version of a full mountain ski race. It rewards those who can ski gates as well as terrain and conditions on the trail.
    3. The Rockefeller Challenge is a test of fearlessness and speed where competitors tuck straight downhill and glide uphill to find the skier who goes the furthest.

Combine and register for all three events and save!

A valid lift ticket or season pass is required. Lift ticket not included in the entry fee.

Ages 10 & up as of 1/1/24. You must complete a registration for each family member who will be racing. Please log in below (if you are already in MRG’s system) or create a new account for each racer.
