Get Silly at this year's Spring Slalom!



We all love pond skimming, it's a fact. Sadly, we're not able to do it this season due to a lack of water in our snowmaking ponds and a frozen Joiner Brook. "Why does that matter?" you might ask. If you remember January's epic thaw (seems like more than two months ago, right?) we had to really tax the snowmaking system to resurface all our terrain to keep pumping out the best product for skiing and riding. Once that was complete, ponds were low, and it really hasn't been over 30 degrees since then, so we're pretty much at the same level. We need water to fill the skimming pond, and if we can't draw anything from the brook, we can't fill said pond. Therefore, no pond skim.

Fortunately, our staff has put together a neat idea that's a little different, and that's the Silly Spring Slalom, happening on Saturday, March 29 at 1pm. Don't fear change, because this is going to be fun.

For starters, it's a downhill race (hence the "slalom") but with a twist. You'll start at the top of Butterscotch and head down the hill where there will be gates, banked turns and a few surprise challenges for each person to complete before you can move on to the next section. Judges will camp out on each section to grade your performance.

Speed will count, but it won't be the only factor. You'll also be judged on whether or not you complete the course (finish all challenges, don't skip any sections, etc.), costume creativity, attitude and overall impression left on the judges. So, by all means, go all out for this. This year's theme is cartoon characters. Any cartoon/animated character will count, so have some fun with it but keep it PG, kids. Overall winner gets a 2014-15 Season Pass! Entrance fee is just $5.
