It’s bump or bust at Ski Sundown’s annual Mogul Competition, in New Hartford, CT! This year’s event, “Moguls Money & Malarkey,” will be held on Ski Sundown’s new expert trail, Satan’s Stairway, on Saturday, March 21, 2015 from 1:00pm to approximately 4:00pm. Past events have featured some of the best mogul skiers in the Northeast.
The competition, sponsored by Suburban Sports in Berlin, will be held on Satan’s Stairway which has the distinction of being the steepest and longest mogul run in Southern New England and will also feature jumps. $3,000 in cash prizes as well as merchandise will be distributed to top performers in the following categories: Under-18; Male 18+; Female 18+; Consolation. Registration begins at 9:00 am in the lodge, with waivers, helmets and a $25 entry fee required. Participants will also receive a free event t-shirt while supplies last, and will be entered into a drawing for additional prizes.
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 the layers! With the tremendous amount of snowfall in February, spring conditions at Sundown are some of the best in years. Joining the party are Thomas Hooker Brewing Company’s Brew-van, live music by Charlie Don’t Surf, and the Ski Sundown outdoor Snow Bar (built entirely of snow, weather permitting).
