Windham Hosts Jeep Terrain Park Challenge Sat.

Windham Mountain will host a regional qualifier for the Jeep Terrain Park Challenge, Saturday, Feb. 3 at 11 am.

The Jeep Terrain Park Challenge offers amateur skiers and snowboarders a chance to showcase their best moves in the nation's best terrain parks. Proceeds will benefit the Heuga Center for Multiple Sclerosis.

Windham Mountain is hosting one of 75 qualifiers for thousands of eager participants. This group will be whittled down to the top 24 athletes through six regional qualifiers spanning from the East and West Coasts to the Rocky Mountain and Midwest regions.

Top finishers will be invited to the National Championship, which will be held in Lake Tahoe, California, in March of 2007.

Windham's course will consist of a combined Big Air and Half Pipe run. Registration is from 8-10am. The cost to participate is a $10 donation to The Heuga Center.

Personally speaking, I rode Windham this weekend, and they are ready to ROCK!! The snow is thick and excellent. The halpipe is sweet. The terrain parks are ready and waiting. The new "G Lift" is fast and takes you to uncrowded parts of the mountain that I never found before. And the trail "Why Not" was like nothing I've ever seen with huge 20 foot mogul rollers that made you feel like an ant cavorting in a bag of giant marshmallows!
