JIMINYPEAK- BOMBER DAY carvers only - in the works...

Considering now that the old "Ace Of Spades" run (was replaced by Coyotie Ridge park) is now back to being a normal run (park is moved to right side of Grand slam)

I figure that AOS would be perfect for us as it has some smooth flat areas and a few steep drops to it that we can lay different styles out and it is wide enough for us to utelize larger boards without fears of running out of room for turns ( unlike Whitetail or Jericho runs).

So here is what I have sofar:

Proposal for “BOMBER DAY”.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

As a member of the web forum www.bomberonline.com, and an employee of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Jiminy</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">Peak</st1:PlaceType>, I would like to pitch a possible event day for <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Jiminy</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">Peak</st1:PlaceType></st1:place>.

Hard boot snowboarding is a rarity in a sea of park riders and present day snowboard stance and equipment styles. Many people only see Alpine stance, hard boots, plate bindings and big sweeping low turns on TV while watching GS races or the Olympics.

There are those among us who are “carvers” and would like to have a day dedicated to such at <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Jiminy</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">Peak</st1:PlaceType></st1:place>. I would like to simply ask for the following:

Allow the trail “ACE OF SPADES” to be closed to the general public for one day between the hours of 8:00 am and 2:00 pm for the event to be held without fears of interlopers and non-snowboard traffic. Offer the Double chair “ribblet” lift to be utilized by event pass holders (as well as other guest) but offer a ten dollar off lift ticket coupon for people who show up for the event with an internet referral flyer or e-coupon who wish to utilize just this lift, Or pay the daily all-mountain pass at full price and enjoy the same carving experience. Local amateur and pro riders from afar will be coming to the mountain. Anyone who wants to watch or learn, are welcome, and it would be great if we could just have our own dedicated groomed trail and lift section for one day.

I expect approximately between 10 and 40 people to come to this.

Presently on the mountain there is 3 instructors and 2 mountain ambassadors who have hard boot gear, so there will indeed be Jiminy peak involvement, and it will be good PR for snowboarder/skier relations for the duration of the day all over the mountain as there always seems to be an animosity between them even though everyone is on the mountain for the same purpose; Enjoy the snow!

<o:p></o:p>

This is an initial proposal, and I’m sure details can be worked out that will benefit all involved as Jiminy has set up race courses for Schools and many other events.

Ideal day for said event would be a Sunday in late January, or early Feb. If a Sunday is not possible, then perhaps a weekday can be arranged.

<o:p></o:p>

Thank you for the consideration of this matter,

<o:p></o:p>

I'm working on getting a day in December or January where we can go and have Whirlaway and the Exhibition runs closed to non-carvers for 1/2 of the day.

If we can get atleast 12 people to say they can commit to it through either a sign up sheet or other forums jumping in with us and having a carver only hill for the morning with fresh groom, I can swing it with a proposal with the Mountain operations people at the fall meeting for returning winter workers.

We could do a Bar-B-Q also.

Anyone interested ?

Hey,

Can any of you east-coasters ( I are 1 now!), Let this ex-Midwest carver know where JiminyPeak is? I am looking to get hooked up with some venues for snowsports. I now live in Connecticut, which as I am learning is pretty much a snow-free-zone? At least compared to where I came from.

This is my home mountain:

Terain is pretty good and they've made some impressive strides in snowmaking and grooming over the last few years.

If I'm reading the rates correctly, you can ride from 8:00am to 10:00pm Friday for $25.
