A heralded event amongst archers, the 2015 Total Archery Challenge, held at the famed Snowbird Ski Resort just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah, attracted more than 1,000 archers to the resort’s summer slopes from July 17-19 – the highest number of participants in the shoot’s 10-year history.
Sponsored by Prime Archery, the 2015 shoot set a new attendance record, and shooters were once again challenged by extreme shooting angles, long distances and rocky terrain. At the Bird, half the difficulty is just trekking to the targets that need to be shot. The good news: The weather was spectacular. Vibrant sunshine and less-than-windy conditions were welcomed by all who participated.
“This location has a long reputation of having the most extreme archery courses, and we aim to make sure it keeps this title and stays as one you’ll never forget,” said Total Archery Challenge Owner and Operator Sean DeGrey.
Once a single event held in Salt Lake, the Total Archery Challenge, thanks in great part to its recent partnership with Prime Archery, has expanded to several events in multiple states. Each event offers archers multiple 3-D target courses to choose from over a three-day weekend.
“Prime bows owners demand the best,” said G5 Outdoors CEO Matt Grace. “We are excited to be partnered with the organization.”
The next event will take place at the Big Sky Resort in Big Sky, Montana, from July 31-August 2. Registration is currently open online at www.totalarcherychallenge.com.
