A skier races in one of the past snow challenge fundraiser events hosted by Waltham-based company Computer Sciences Corporation at Nashoba Valley Ski Area.

Computer Sciences Corporation, a Waltham-based technology consulting company, will host its annual snow challenge fundraising event for the Jimmy Fund at Nashoba Valley Ski Area in February.

The event, to be held Feb. 2, features team and individual ski and snowboard racing to help raise money for the Jimmy Fund. The registration fee for a four-person race team is $240 and $70 for individual racers.

Teams are also encouraged to raise funds on their own for the event: for every $150 raised on top of the registration fee, one second will be deducted from the team's end race time.

After hitting the slopes, all racers are invited to the lodge for an after-skiing party to celebrate.

For the past 17 years, a team of seven employees of the Waltham company have worked to plan the fundraiser. Since its inception, the event has raised nearly $500,000 to support adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Some organizers are cancer survivors themselves, including core team member Mike Antoniazzi, a prostate cancer survivor, while others have loved ones who have or are currently battling cancer and want to help eradicate the disease.

For more information, visit the event's website.
