SNOWSHOE, W.Va. –Snowshoe Mountain and SCION are teaming up again this year to host the biggest skiing and snowboarding competition in the state. The 2nd Annual WV Open will be the weekend of January 27 – 28 and will attract the best skiers and snowboarders in the region for a weekend of on slope competitions including a rail jam, slopestyle competition and boarder/skier cross race with cash prizes totaling $5,000.
This year’s event will include many of the same competitions that were featured last year, starting with the Saturday night rail jam, which will take place on Skidder Slope just outside of the Shavers Centre.
The West Virginia Open is probably our most exciting, action packed competition of the year,” said Jason Scotchie, Snowshoe’s Event Manager. “We expect several hundred spectators will come check out the high flying action.”
In addition to the rail jam, the other competitions held throughout the weekend will include the slopestyle competition on Saturday in the Spruce Glades Terrain Park at 10:30 a.m. On Sunday morning, the Boarder/Skier X will be at 10:30 a.m. on Slaymaker at the Silver Creek Area.
Entertainment throughout the weekend will be live with DJ Zimmie and DJ Nugget, of Pittsburgh, PA. The DJ’s will be spinning on the Village Stage during the day on Saturday and in the Big Top at 10:00 p.m. on Saturday night.
