Calling all mogul skiers and snowboarders to Ski Sundown in New Hartford to take unlimited bump runs on Gunbarrel until those quads burn and bust! People can peal in and out of the event as often as they like. The fun starts on Saturday, March 18 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. This event will be held on the “Gunbarrel” and is free with lift tickets and passes.
The judges will be tossing out prizes throughout the event for awesome style, air and speed! Bumpers will also be given drawing tickets during segments of the event; drawing for prizes will take place at 3:00pm for some sweet swag (must be present to win): Thule racks, goggles, helmets, outerwear, ski shop gift cards, and more!
To add to the fun, Ski Sundown is hosting an Outdoor BBQ; plus there will be Adult Beverages (age 21+) and general Spring Skiing shenanigans!
The skiing conditions at Ski Sundown are amazingly good The event is a great spectator sport, and celebrates the spring skiing and snowboarding season, characterized by longer, warmer days, sunny skies, soft snow, kick-back barbeques on the deck, and losing some layers! In this land of steady habits, it’s fun to cut loose a little and enjoy some March Radness and Madness! Expect some costumes, and the appearance of Gumby vs. The Easter Bunny as they go head to head in the bumps!
For people who need to brush up on their bump skiing skills or just want to learn how to tackle the bumps, we are offering Mogul Clinics three times on Saturday, March 18 and three times on Sunday, March 19 for $48. http://skisundown.com/Lessons-Packages/Lessons-Packages/Group-Lessons-Packages/Adult-Junior-Group-Lessons
