Happy New Year!
Even though Mother Nature has yet to bless us with any snow this winter, the cold temps allowed many resorts to make snow and open (thank goodness!). So instead of just reading our blog about how fun snowboarding is, why not give it a shot yourself? Remember that New Year resolution you made to “try something new”? Well here’s your chance to try snowboarding and possibly fall in love with it. Not convinced you can fall in love with snowboarding on first try? Just ask our volunteer and board member, Mel.
New for 2012, Shred Love is hosting Family Day at Camelback Mountain. Mom and Dad, this is the perfect opportunity to prove to your kid that you still got it. 😉 Strap in, take a lesson, and then show these youngins what you got. Also, that evening from 5-9pm, Nike is hosting its Chosen Rail Jam at Camelback’s Sunbowl. Watch snowboarders compete for $3000 and Nike swag. Remember what it felt like watching the Olympics on tv? Well this time experience it first hand, for free. The Sunbowl is easily accessed by non-skiers and snowboarders, even more reason to come out and enjoy a day on the slopes.
Since this event is open to everyone, no transportation will be provided by Shred Love. We will provide gloves and snow pants to participating youth first and then adults as permitted. If you will need gear for your child(ren), please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org/wordpress. Gear is limited and will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
Payment is due Wednesday, January 11, 2012. We will meet at the Camelback Lodge Group Sales Desk at 9am. Lift tickets and rental vouchers will be distributed then.
- First time ski/snowboard packages – lesson, lift ticket (restricted to beginner access lifts), and rental gear: $58
- All area ski/ride packages – lift ticket and rental gear: $75
- Open – close lift tickets: $38
- Helmets (mandatory by NJ law): $10.75
- Wrist guards (optional): $5.25
Hope to see you there!
