Kaatskillz Pro-Am Freestyle Event *CANCELLED*
Sat, Feb 24
Time: 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Location: Empire Terrain Parks
Mother Nature has handed us quite the ups and downs this season. Unfortunately, with the warm temps and off-and-on showers this week, we’ve made the tough decision to cancel Kaatskillz for this Saturday. Moving snow around in temps like this will actually do more damage than good and we are focused on preserving our snow pack for an extended season while still planning for new major events like the Sam Adams Air & Apres big air show, Bud Light Bumps & BBQ, as well as the return of the Monster Energy Rail Jam on March 17th.
We apologize – we know this is a huge bummer for those of you who have competed or were planning on competing this year.
With that said, our park crew has done a great job this season keeping our parks in great shape, so you can still continue to enjoy all their hard work!

The event will be hosted by none other than Joey B of Freshies Media, while a DJ spins alongside on-site event sponsors Clif Bar, Oakley, Monster Energy, and Yakima. The competition kicks off at 11 AM!
