Photos: 2022 Sima Uphill Challenge

Racers pushed their snowmobiles and snow bikes straight up Mount Sima on April 23.

Racers on powerful snowmobiles and snow bikes put on a high-flying show during the 2022 Sima Uphill Challenge at the Mount Sima ski hill.

Beginning from a start line at the Mount Sima chalet the riders had to negotiate jumps and sharp banked turns before pinning the throttle on the way up the Dan’s Descent ski run.

The event, hosted by Yukon Yamaha, was held on April 23 and 24.

After the head-to-head snowmobile and snow-bike races on April 23, the second day of the event paired high-powered machines with skiers and snowboarders for a “ski and shred” race.
