    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!

    Trevyn...that sounds insane. The idea of the skate/jump/drop park on skidder just makes for a killer atmosphere, esp after the lifts close and there is still hours of daylight left...

    My only question/request is regarding expansion...Do you have plans to expand the bike park on the basin side as well as integrate more features (bike park like) on the western territories side? There is still alot of mountain left at snowshoe, that a creative mind could put to some good use. :sneaky:

    Definitely a good idea. If it happens, I definitely won't miss camping at silvercreek's parking lot.

    I like to race MTNx, but this years turn out at the Mayhem race was pitiful. I understand them not wanting to invest the time and resources in it without the national. I heard talk about a DS track on the skidder slope.

    Is there any chance you could run the lift the Friday before race weekend also.....?

    Snowshoe courses are long, is alot to take-in in one day......also is long drive out there for most everyone.

    The way they run it is practice all day Saturday,
    then a long practice on Sunday and then the race.
    So you do get in a ton of riding.
    But I ain't arguing with you on getting the lift running for an extra day.:thumb:

    If they don't add Fridays they of course are running the shuttles, but I suggest you head up there opening weekend and ride all the western territory trails. A good solid weekend on the trails and you should ready for whatever trail they run.

    The shuttle works for fryday but i would like to see something like if you are registered to race then its an additonal $15 to use the shuttle on that day. That's how pkill does it when they have fryday practice.

    With the shuttle, if you get there by noon you can then get 6 shuttle runs in.....so the lift might not required.....

    Wonder how many new trails they're going to build, that bikepark side is like crack.....love thoose trails.....

    As of right now there are no plans for a MTX course to be built on Log Slide (where it was last year). Too big of a project and cost for the program to take on alone. Though the area on skidder will have a variation of Dirt Jump Park, Slalom/MTX course, and Freeride Park. The skate park will also be moving and expanding to this area. The possibility of developing a raceable Slalom/Mtx course in this area is there. We will have to assess a number of things and come up with an ideal layout for the best use of this area. Hopefully it will be all and more...

    Oh, and tell morgan I liked his picture in the new Decline mag.

    Yeah, me too.
    You can put way less effort into a slalom course, and it is still 10 times more fun to race and watch than MTX.

    duel would work and I would'nt expect to see a mtnx course like the last two years I can't even begin to think of what that must cost to build, a saturday evening duel race would be cool. spectators listening to a band and having a drink while watching some racing, it might just get some people to hang out longer and spend some more money and spend the night. which is what snowshoe wants, look at the national this year and how many hung out at the duel race. just a thought:thumb:

    Trev,
    It would be great If you could integrate a DS course into the DJ Park . I think you would get better participation than last year by offering DS over MTX and get more spectators because of a more convient location.

    The Decline pic was a nice suprise. Thanks for noticing.
    Have a great winter

    Chas

    Would be cool if you scheduled a race between the U.S. Open and the Sugar Mountain NORBA National.

    For us west coast folks making the trek across the country, June 3/4th is an open weekend on what will be a month long east coast trip (U.S. Open May 26-28th, Off Weekend, Sugar Mtn Jun 10/11th, Mt. Snow Jun 17/18th).

    I would recommend that you spend that week off at Snowshoe even if they aren't having a race that weekend.

    This would be cool, but you gotta keep the dj's DJ's if you know what i mean, you cant turn them into highspeed race humps that arent fun to trick over. There is a big difference, well maintained lips are key.
