Snowboarders invited to race at Powder King

Anyone interested in competing is allowed to register, but must follow some guidelines set up for racers' safety. All racers must have a helmet, and must be at a level comfortable enough to carve on their snowboard, to ensure riders can manipulate their way through the designed course safely.

Competitors must also sign waiver forms for insurance purposes, and those under the age of 18 must have their parents or guardian sign permission forms.

The competition will hit the slopes of Powder King on February 23 and 24.

The first race of the season was recently held at Tabor Mountain Ski Resort, and had over 55 racers, both old and young, compete in the fun-filled, friendly competition.

Powder King is also in search of volunteers to help set up and tear down events, as well as help them run as smoothly as possible while taking place. Volunteers will have to commit to either a full or half day of service, but will be compensated with free lift passes, as well as meals, and transportation to the ski resort.

If interested in providing your services, check Powder King’s official website, and for more information on the Snowboard Cross, visit the event’s Facebook page.
