Ski Butternut pushing to open weekend of January 2 – 3.
Great Barrington – After reviewing the most recent short and long term weather forecast, Ski Butternut’s General Manager, Dick McCann happily announced Monday morning that the mountain is looking to open as early as Saturday, January 2nd or Sunday January 3rd. Understandably opening is dependent upon the mountain receiving the necessary cold temperatures to blow snow, but the forecast looks very promising in regard to that much needed return to colder temperatures.
The Berkshires are under a Winter Weather Advisory Monday night into Tuesday afternoon that brings with it cold temperatures. The low for Monday night is predicted to dip down around 23 degrees. Snowmaking weather then returns again Thursday, Friday and Saturday with a low of 22 predicted and then again Sunday with temperatures forecast to dip to a low of 17 degrees. Temperatures in the mid-teens are ideal for snowmaking operations at Ski Butternut. These forecasts come from The Weather Channel. (more…)
3 for 3 Jam
Is a combination of 3 awesome ideas!
1. Break the mold of typical runs in a contest.
2. Making competition more FUN vs. serious.
3. Creativity in riding/ skiing.
With that being said we hope to have your attention! 3 for 3 Jam is going to run over 3 hours on 3 different features throughout Twisted Terrain Park. There will be divisions of discipline, but there will be winners at each feature. This is to help cut down on people being discouraged away from contests due to features and other contestants. So if you’re a rail rider you can just hit the rail in the 3 for 3 Jam and try to place on the rail feature or vice versa with jump riders. The features will be announced a couple of days before the contest, with differences between the features. Might be a jump, a rail, a box or Rainbow log, spine, and hip, it will change for every 3 for 3 Jam. It’s a 3 hour jam so you have enough time to hike a feature or lap with your friends; you also get as many tricks in as you want on the features in 3 hours. That’s a lot of riding time to have fun and push yourself against your friends. Think slope style with more runs and winners for each feature. We will have a judge at each feature to catch your tricks.
