Stepping It Up for Stash Bash

Boyne Mountain Area Manager, Colin Riviere, takes you to Ramshead Terrain Park, the site of the 2014 Stash Bash. You asked for a bigger, better park event and we heard you loud and clear.

It's started. This past weekend marked the beginning of our Stash Bash creation with the import of a couple new weapons into our arsenal of grooming and shaping tools:  a 2015 Pisten Bully Park Pro snowcat demo and a professional shaper to run it; Mr. Jake Ingle.

Jake and I first crossed paths many moons ago out west when he was contracted to build our 22 foot super pipe and boardercross for a Chevy Pro Tour event back in Idaho. He did such a fantastic job that the US Snowboard team hired him to be their exclusive pipe-cutter from that point on.  Jake travels the world each winter building features, pipes, and boardercross courses for different teams, resorts, and other miscellaneous clients. We are extremely lucky to have him here in Northern Michigan helping us design and shape our 2014 Stash Bash.  

We started last Friday by pulling and re-arranging features in our current park configuration and developing a plan for what the bigger park is going to entail. We then decided to lay low through this past warm and sunny weekend and kicked construction back into high gear last night. With the current warm weather projected to continue straight through the weekend, we wanted to push back construction as late as possible, so everything stays fresh for the weekend and limits the amount of maintenance needed.    

We did look hard at moving the event to North Boyne, due to the amount of snow still on the run and its sheltered disposition to the sun which would give it better durability throughout our last week of full-time operations. After extensive deliberation, the team agreed Ramshead will be the better location for variety, fun, and provide the best product for skiers and riders.  Jake started peeling the snow last night to double the size of the first two hits and to build up the deck at the entrance.  He pulled about two feet of snow from the Ramshead run over to the jumps and rail line, and this morning we moved the rope line over to the lift to give us the size of the park we need for Stash Bash.  We got lucky, the snow did freeze last night and set up pretty good at 25 degrees after midnight, so we're looking good on the pack we have across the Ramshead face.

Next step is to start setting the rails and shaping the two bigger hits: decks, take-offs, and knuckles. As you can imagine, this takes some manpower and I am needed on the hill.  If you want to hear more about the end product for Stash Bash, hit up the "blog" on Friday and prepare to shred this weekend.
