With a new contest format for this year, we’re excited to roll out the Crotched Parks Block Party 1.0 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.
