The Incredible Annual ICE COAST OPEN
We’re bringing winter back.
SUNDAY FEB 12, 2012
The ICE COAST OPEN is an annual slopestyle competition, open to skiers and snowboarders of all ages, that takes place in our TWISTED terrain park.
There are 7 categories to compete in:
- 12&under SKI
- 12&under SNOWBOARD
- Women SKI AND SNOWBOARD (one category)
- Intermediate SKI
- Intermediate SNOWBOARD
- Open/Pro SKI
- Open/Pro SNOWBOARD
Entry fee is $20 for all categories except Open/Pro, which has a $25 entry fee. There are $1000 in cash prizes given away, $300 to first place in each of the open/pro categories, $150 to second in each of the open/pro, and $50 to 3rd in each open/pro. Other categories win great non-cash prizes, from sponsors including Kenver LTD, The Garden, Berkshire Bike & Board, Michele’s Salon and Day Spa. Women may enter the open/pro competition or the women-only category.
All competitors must have a lift ticket or season pass, as well as a terrain park pass ($3/day or $10/season, plus required test which is linked below).
We will be offering a discounted $35 full-day lift ticket to competitors (that’s a $20 discount off our regular adult prices — enough to offset your whole entry fee in some cases).
Registration will take place on the morning of the event, Sunday Feb 12, from 8AM until 9:30AM in the lower lodge. The course will be open for practice runs from 8:30am until 9:35am (so try to get here and register early if you’d like to get some practice time in).
Fill out the required forms ahead of time and save time:

PARK PASS APPLICATION (if you don’t already have one)
- I don’t want to enter, but I want to watch. Can I?
Of course! The event is open to spectators, and your cheers and support are encouraged. But there are a few rules to keep in mind: Skiers and boarders who are not competing will be permitted to enter the terrain park at the Twist entryway. You WILL NOT need a terrain park pass to enter and watch the competition, just a valid lift ticket or season pass. Certain parts of the park will be open to competitors only: Please respect all signs, ropes, and staff instructions to keep the park safe. If you do not have a ticket or don’t want to ski in, you will be allowed to hike up to the designated spectator area from the bottom of Westway. Wear good shoes: You won’t be able to hike up in ski boots.
- Can I go inverted?
NO! Keep your tricks steezy and your head up!
- What’s the schedule and format for the competition?
The event starts promptly at 10AM. Each competitor will have 2 judged runs. There will be a variety of terrain park elements, photos of which are up on the Terrain Parks facebook wall.
- I’m not a competitor, but I’d like to use the park. Can I?
During the competition, the Twisted terrain park’s features will be closed to non-competitors. You will be able to enter and watch, but will not be able to ski or ride the park features. The Progression Park on Cruiser will be open to everyone all day, including during the competition. The Twisted Park will reopen to anyone with a park pass after the competition is over.
