I know there has been some discussion and curious minds as to what the event schedule is looking like for 2006. Below is a preliminary schedule for 06. This is a ruff draft so some changes may be made, though we are fairly comfortable in saying that this is probably what we will be looking at. Snowshoe race and event dates: 5/27 - 28: Freeride Weekend- Season Opening 6/24-25: Race 1 7/1-2: July 4th 7/21-22: Race 2 8/12-13: Wine and Jazz 8/18,19,20: Monster Park / Race 3 9/9-10: Mayhem - Series Final For all these dates both the western and basin lifts will be operating Shaums March Camps dates are being determined as we speak We have also been looking into having a March snow event to include a Mass Downhill/MTX and a FreeRide event. More info will be coming soon. This will be a weather dependent event. We will have two season pass options this year one for all season one for all western lift weekends Misc info: Series cash purse starting at $20,000 Prizes and swag in addition to the cash purse Race Format We are exploring some possibilities here. 1 or 2 course format with leaning toward 1 Class setup will probably be Pro and Amateur with age divisions. Dirt Jump/Slopestyle area: Located on skidder Will include: Skate Park, dirt jumps, Drop Park and features from last years Monsterpark. All events will include entertainment and lodging options Although tentative, we are looking at a tent camping area on top of the mountain with facilities for riders wanting less expensive option. We will be updating our web page with official info asap. www.ride.snowshoemtn.com It's good to hear the enthusiasm for next summer. Thanks from all of us here at Snowshoe Mountain!
