Lets face it, winter is here. This weekend poses some options for all.
Saturday November 6th 2010
1) Edge of the World Snowboard Party in Banner Elk, NC.
EOW facebook and website.
Only info I know about - Store opens at 10 am, up to 75% off on last years products, raffles throughout the day, big glove boxing, skate comp starts around 12 noon, double movie premiere around 6:30 (movies showing are Cheers and In Color), and snowboard comp starts around 8 or 8:30. Skate comp is free to enter and the snowboard comp is $25 to enter. Not sure if helmets are required. We went to this event last year and it was a blast. After the comp, we were allowed to ride the setup until the shop closed.
2) 3rd Annual Rail Jam at Field of Screams in Mountville, PA.
Field of Screams facebook, website, and registration.
Five dollar entry, helmets required, starts at 7 pm. We went to this event last year, check the archive for pictures. After the comp we weren't allowed to ride the setup anymore.
3) Cataloochee Ski Area in Maggie Valley, NC.
Cataloochee's facebook and website.
Cataloochee is planning on opening for the season. This is very weather dependent obviously. If they can make enough snow then they will open, if not then they won't. Check their website or facebook for updates and reports. I have never been so I do not know what it is like, Ryan has been so ask him what is up about it. Also I am not sure on what the lift ticket rate will be.
