Cardboard and the VC Finals

You read the title of this post and thought, “What does cardboard have to do with the Vertical Challenge Finals?”

Well, it turns out the last VC event before the Finals was . . . a cardboard sled race. When weather forced us to cancel ski and snowboard racing last weekend, we jumped in to help Berkshire East with their Cardboard Classic. Some of our VC Crew members teamed up with kids to make sleds while the rest played games and gave out samples and prizes. To see how it went, including how cardboard slides on snow, check out the video of the day below.

Next we head to Vermont for the VC Finals at Jay Peak(where they got three inches of snow last week and ten inches over the last couple of days). Our event happens Saturday, April 9th – you’ll find the latest information on our website. The registration deadline is midnight on Tuesday, April 5th. If you had hoped to qualify last weekend at Berkshire East or Catamount and couldn’t because the resorts had to cancel the races, message us at the Contact Us page on to make arrangements.

Once you’re onsite at Jay Peak, be sure to try some free samples of Stonyfield products – they’re organic and yummy! Also, visit the Xfinity tent to register for a chance to win a GoPro HERO10 Black camera!

There are basically four steps to Finals registration:

• REGISTER WITH NASTAR so we have you in the scoring system. You need to be signed in to their system to register.• Book your discounted lodging with Jay Peak using the information on our WEBSITE LODGING PAGE.

• Fill out THE VC FORM that lets us know what pod to put you in.

• Fill out JAY PEAK’S WAIVER. Please note that some of you who registered already may not have seen this piece yet as it is a relatively recent addition to the process. Do please complete it prior to April 5th.
