Potential SNE Mogul Competition

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
As a result of the latest Ski Sundown AlpineZone Ski Area Challenge, we may be able to encourage the mountain to hold a mogul competition this season. If this comes to pass, this will likely be the only amateur mogul competition in Southern New England that I know of. This is sort of a grass roots campaign to get the mountain to consider the event. Please Email Chris Sullivan and/or Jarrod Moss at Ski Sundown, CT to demonstrate your interest:

:

What are you considering Southern New England? Hunter, Windham, and Belleaire in NY state all have amateur bump competitions.
Killington and Mount Snow also.
I'd be surprised to find that Catamount, Berkshire East or Jiminy Peak don't do the same?

Just askin.

New York is not New England. Never heard of a bump comp at any Berkshire ski area and I'm pretty in tune with the NE ski industry...

Bumps are eradicated at Jiminy.

Southern Vermont is Mt Snow, Stratton, Bromley, and Magic.

What trail for the competition?

I see they have a snowboarder category too.

Good idea or bad idea?

I'd hang around and watch it if it was convenient to do so, but wouldn't go out of my way for it.

Thoughts?

Well, at least they have their own category. So no skier vs. snowboarder duels which would be rather silly. The place is pretty serious about their park and snowboarders at Sundown are the majority really so I understand why they are welcome to compete. I do cringe when I see them side slipping through the bumps though. :

Lived in the northeast for 18 years, never heard of Sundown. Learn something every day.

Well, it's not much of a hill really. Only 625' vert. Still, they seed some nice bumps and are pretty dedicated to their mogul philosophy. It's a great place for me to ski at night or take advantage of a local dump without having to drive too far.

Nice, I like it when smaller hills make a point of having some nice moguls. Looks like fun.
