Camel's Hump Challenge
One of New England's premier backcountry skiing events, The Camel's Hump Challenge (CHC) is a high country traverse around the perimeter of Camel's Hump (4083'), the third highest peak in Vermont's Green Mountains. CHC founder and organizer Dr. Warren Beeken, who passed away in 2003, helped create this event to raise funds for support services and education programs provided by the Vermont chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, and today, the CHC continues to do so.
