With the bummer forecast approaching for Saturday, we've made a decision to re-schedule the Midnight Madness FInale and Block Party 2.0 events to next weekend, March 3-4, 2017. The specific night of the re-schedule is TBD,m but will be announced ASAP. This was a tough call, but we made it based on the mixed precipitation coming and to not beat up our snowpack in the wet snow. Thanks for understanding and we hope you can make it next weekend. 

With a new contest format for this year, we’re excited to roll out the Crotched Parks Block Party 2.0 for the 16/17 season. We’ll be running a jam format rail jam with cash prizes to kick-off the night’s shred fest. Once the contest is over, we’ll revert back to the feature being open for free shred, until the lights shut down at 3:00 am. There will be a live DJ, a special block party feature built, tower lights hauled in for the event and a bonfire, so swing by to celebrate the first Crotched Parks event of the year!

*Lift tickets will be required for riding the feature, even if just hiking only. It's a liability thing, not a lift thing. This will be policed by staff members during the event. Please get a lift ticket to ride the feature either by registering for the event, owning a valid season pass or by buying a lift ticket at the windows for that night’s Midnight Madness.
