The world's best curlers.
The sport's largest prize.

Congratulations to Team Gushue for winning 6-5 in a tight match against Team Epping in the inaugural Everest Curling Challenge!

The Everest Curling Challenge is a world-class curling event with a novel game format. The inaugural event, which aired across Canada on TSN and RDS and was live streamed on ESPN3 in the U.S., brought together 32 of the world’s top women’s and men’s curlers to compete for the single largest cash prize in the sport. The event was hosted in Fredericton, New Brunswick over a three-day period, August 25, 2017 – August 27, 2017.

Everest is a big supporter of curling and believes the sport represents the best of community, fellowship and accessibility. As an advocate for families, Everest was built on the same values.


The inaugural Everest Curling Challenge featured a unique, mixed-player format. Curlers did not play on their usual teams. Instead, Skips took turns drafting players for each position but excluded team members from their regular competition teams. Each team had two men and two women.

The official Draft took place August 24, 2017.

Below are the final results from the 2017 Everest Curling Challenge.
