This annual slopestyle competition gathers skiers and boarders from throughout the region to compete for the Best in West Virginia title. Anyone can participate in the event, no matter your level, so don’t be afraid to come try your hand!

The WV Open will feature four categories: Men’s Ski, Men’s Snowboard, Women’s Ski and Snowboard, and SnowshoeYouth 11 and Under Ski and Snowboard. The competition will begin on Saturday evening at 5 p.m. at the Mountaineer terrain park, with registration available from 10 to 2 and practice from 2 to 5. Afterwards, an awards ceremony will take place on the Mountaineer deck to honor the winners and celebrate a successful season.

Pre-registration is available for $30 online, and day-of for $35. All participants must also hold a lift ticket, but registered competitors can purchase one for a discount at $45.

There’s still plenty of snow on the mountain, so come enjoy it while it lasts at the 2015 WV Open!
