Mountain Resort is proud to present pro snowboarder Simon Chamberlain’s
signature event “Simon Says” this Saturday, January 10, 2009 in “The
Scene.” This unique competition will kick off at 5 p.m. under the
lights at Bear Mountain. Registration for the event will take place
between 3 and 4 p.m. in the Boardroom. Only 80 entries will be taken so
if you want to compete get there early and be prepared to kick down the
15 dollar registration fee.
The course will be set Friday
night by Bear Mountain’s pro terrain park staff. “Simon will be hand
picking the features for this competition Friday night so it’s anyones
guess what will be included,” says Bear Mountain’s park development and
marketing coordinator, Clayton Shoemaker. “I can guarantee that it will
be sick and likely include his signature jib that we constructed last
Simon Says is similar to the childhood game played on playgrounds
around the country for decades. Simon will stand at the top of the
course and call out tricks, then competitors will have the opportunity
to match his requested trick. If the riders fail to pull the trick they
will be eliminated from the competition. Prizes for winners will
consist of cash and swag from thirtytwo, Nomis and Step Child.
DJ Slip Matt will be spinning tunes in the base area and the Beach Bar
will be serving booze for those 21 and over. Food and beverages will
also be available for purchase at the Rail View BBQ. So, come out and
make a night of it.
Over the summer the resort installed two new lights that give off 6000
watts of power each making for an excellent night event venue.
Snowboarders can look forward to many more nighttime events coming to
Bear Mountain this year.
