Kaatskillz: a skate park on snow

Details for 2018 Kaatskillz, February 24th, coming soon! Last year's details below:

Freestyle skiers and riders are invited to compete in the Kaatskillz pro-am event located on the main face of the mountain on Park Ave West. The event build is comprised of skate park inspired features including hips, bowls, and rails, all of which competitors will be judged on their approach and style through the course. The event will be hosted by none other than Joey B of Freshies Media, while DJ David Barese will be spinning alongside on-site event sponsors Clif Bar, Oakley, Monster Energy, and Yakima. The competition kicks off at 11am!

Top placing competitors will receive prizes from event sponsors CLIF Bar, Oakley, DC, Yakima, Monster Energy, and Hunter Mountain. Top snowboarders will also receive a free trip to Mount Snow's Carinthia Open Mega Plaza Event, Carinthia's biggest event of the season. A total of $1,500 cash will be awarded to the top competitors in the pro division. Cash breakdown is based on a sliding scale determined by the number of competitors in each of the Male and Female Ski and Snowboarding Pro division. Depending on the number of competitors in each class, cash prize amounts will vary; cash prize amounts will be greater in classes with more competitors.
