Lookout Mountain to host competition

This weekend marks the beginning of a new era at Northstar-at-Tahoe with the grand opening celebration of Lookout Mountain. (See additional story)

In addition to this new terrain, the mountain’s new park area will be hosting the Slope-Style Competition, sponsored by Snowbomb.com.

Snowbomb is behind Northstar’s new approach to terrain park building and events, incorporating the “family resort” mantra of the area with the newest trends in snowboarding and skiing.

The competition, which will be held Saturday, Jan. 20 and Sunday, Jan. 21, will offer a wide variety of park features to cater to young novice skiers and riders as well as intermediate and advanced competitors.

Amateur class competition for men and women, boys and girls will award prizes to the top three winners and is free for all brave enough to sign up. For competitors in the open class division, prize money will be distributed for the best performances.

Northstar has worked to design a park fit for everyone with rail slides, tabletops, halfpipes and jumps for various ability levels. This weekend’s Slope-Style Competition promises to be one of many new events on the mountain, as it expands to incorporate more advanced terrain, and more variety for the entire family.

Registration will begin at 9 a.m. at the lodge at Big Springs and the competition will begin at 11 a.m. at the top of the pioneer chair. All participants must have a signed waiver before competing, and anyone under 18 must have their parents signature before the competition begins.
