May 31st, 2010 ~ Mount Snow, VT ~
While most people focus their Memorial Day weekends around barbeques and swimming pools, the terrain park crew at Mount Snow is working hard to change the yearly routine of its freestyle guests. Over 300 skiers and riders took to snow on Saturday May 29th for the 3rd Annual Peace Pipe Jam. The event featured eight freestyle features, including two jumps, at the base of Carinthia – Mount Snow’s all mountain-face terrain park. In all, attendance between skiers, riders, skateboarders and those just taking in the atmosphere was nearly 500 people.
The Peace Pipe Jam is a free event at the bottom of the Inferno terrain park. A massive pile of snow was amassed at the end of the season and was flattened out two days prior to the event and shaped into its final form. Event day also featured music, a barbeque, free food samplings, retail sales and product giveaways.
