Weekend Pick: Wintergreen Slopestyle

get more from BRO

Ahh, ski season. It’s a short but sweet time of year, so all you snow enthusiasts can benefit from the surge of events, races, and workshops that our Blue Ridge resorts plan in a winter frenzy before higher temperatures start to melt away the fun. This time, fuel your competitive spirit at Wintergreen Resort near Charlottesville, Virginia for a slopestyle competition– the mountain’s second competitive event in the 2015 Winter Terrain Park Series – on January 31.

Saturday evening, ski and snowboard participants will gather on the mountain to show off their freestyle skills. The event begins at 5 PM, after a registration period from 4 to 4:45 at the Wintergreen Snowsports Desk. Competitors will channel their inner Shaun White and compete for prizes from the judges. Plus, anyone who joins three out of the five slopestyle and rail jam events that Wintergreen will offer this season will be eligible to win grand prizes at the end of the series in March.

The competition costs $25 and requires a valid lift ticket, but is also open to skiers and snowboarders of all ages and abilities. No matter what end of the snowsport spectrum you may fall on, from snow bunny to black diamond junkie, the Wintergreen Slopestyle event will make your day on the mountain even more exciting. Come compete, learn, and get inspired on the snow this Saturday at Wintergreen.
