Experience March Mountain Madness at Camelback!

Camelback_Pond_SkimmingSlide into spring at Camelback Mountain Resort! March Mountain Madness brings exciting end-of-season events to the slopes on Saturday and Sunday, March 22 and 23.

On Saturday, start the day early and secure your spot for the Parking Lot Party! Reserved tailgating spaces open at 7 a.m. and entertainment begins at 10:30. Tailgate themes and cuisine will be judged at noon. Winners will be announced by 1 p.m.

At 1:30 p.m., make your way to the Sunbowl Slope for the annual Pond Skimming Competition! This zany challenge features costumed competitors and lots of laughs—it’s a spectacle you won’t want to miss! Skiers and snowboarders age 16 and older will race down the hill and surf over a shallow pond at the bottom. There will be prizes for the most original method, best dismount and best in show. After the action, the party continues with a performance by the Maybabies at 5 p.m.

On Sunday, head back to the mountain for another full day of fun! Parking spots re-open at 7 a.m. and a DJ starts spinning tunes at noon. Camelback’s Cardboard Box Derby takes place on the Sunbowl Slope at 1 p.m.

Catch a glimpse of the action as teams hit the hill in creatively constructed cardboard chariots! With materials restricted to cardboard, tape, paint, paper and glue, the competition will surely showcase some silly sleds and dramatic wipeouts! Vehicles will be judged for the best time, best dismount and best theme.

CBK Mountain Adventures’ 4000′ Zip Flyer, Twin Zip Lines and Mountain Coaster are scheduled to be open during the March Mountain Madness Weekend. Hours of operation are weather dependent and to be announced.

Both the Pond Skimming Competition and the Cardboard Box Derby are free of charge. Some restrictions apply. Tailgating spaces are available by reservation only. A $10 registration fee benefits select dog rescue organizations of Monroe County.
