Stop number 3 on 2014 Ski the East's annual Freeride Tour is none other than the legendary Liftline run on Sugarbush's Castlerock Peak. Every year freeskiers flock to Vermont for a single run down this guantlet of bumps, drops and rocks for a chance at cash and a season's worth of bragging rights. And with a lift full of spectators overhead, even the worst yardsales become spectacle.
On March 8, the 17th Annual Castlerock Extreme at Sugarbush will put $1,000 up for grabs and offer infinitely more battle scars to those fearless enough to drop in. Registration is $80 for non-passholder (includes lift ticket); $45 for Sugarbush passholders. Pre-reg ends March 6 at midnight. More info.
