24 Hours of Schweitzer

The sixth annual downhill ski event benefits Cystinosis research. Cystinosis is a rare, fatal disease, and this event honors Sandpoint’s Hank Sturgis, a young boy diagnosed with the disease as an infant. The team relay lasts for 24 hours, with participants skiing as many runs as possible.
