Sunchaser Spring Finale Weekend: Board Bike & Brew

Sat, May 25 - Sun, May 26

Time: 8:30 AM
Location: West Village

Boarding, biking, and drinking brews all in the same weekend to celebrate another great winter season in the books. This is our 2 nd annual Board, Bike and Brew Festival sponsored by 10 Barrel Brewing Co., and we have a lot of fun activities planned as part of our Finale Weekend.

Sunshine lift will be open for mountain biking, while Skyliner, Pine Marten, and Summit (weather permitting) will be open for skiing and riding. Can you do it all in one day? Prizes will be given to those who do! Stop by the Mt. Bachelor tent located at the top of the hot walk and pick up your tracking card.

We are trying to reduce our waste this year during our closing weekend festivities. Please bring your own cup if you plan on drinking, and we’ll give you a raffle ticket to be entered to win a great prize! #BYOC #ZeroWaste 

*No Reusable Cups can be used in the bar. Beer Garden only.

Skiing, Riding & Biking  

Sunshine lift will be open for mountain biking from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26. Pine Marten, Skyliner, and Summit will be open for skiing and riding from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. both days (weather permitting). If you would like to bike on the Sunshine lift either day, just bring a valid day ticket or winter season pass to the ticketing office in the Gateway building in West Village, and they will issue you a free ticket for biking. If you do not have a valid winter season pass or day ticket and you do not want to ski or ride, you can still purchase a bike park day ticket for the Sunshine lift for $19 or purchase a Bike Park Season Pass.


King/Queen of the Mountain 

Have you ever seen the movie, Out Cold? Have you ever wanted to race down the mountainside with a full beer to see who could become the King or Queen of the Mountain? We’re setting up a fun dual course next to the magic carpet in front of West Village so we can host a bracketed competition that’ll lead to some spilled beer and fun times. The King or Queen of the Mountain will receive a $500 – 10 Barrel Gift Card and bragging rights for a full year.

We’ll have two brackets; skiers and snowboarders, with 16 people in each bracket. You must race someone down the dual course which will have obstacles like rollers, gates, and moguls. Whoever gets to the finish line first and hasn’t lost more than an inch of beer will move on to the next competition until we are able to crown a winner. If at any point your beer falls below a certain line, you will be DQ’d. We will only fill up your beer once so you’ll have to be cautious when getting back up to the top of the course for your next race.

Registration cost is $20 and you will receive a commemorative beer mug and a beer token to get a full pour after the competition is over. Check in at the Mt. Bachelor event tent from 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 25. Must be age 21 or older to enter.

If you have a Mt. Bachelor season pass or OnePass card, please have it handy when you register. You'll want to input the number on the card to speed-up the sign-up process.


Stein Hoisting Competition 

Have you ever wanted to test out your arm strength by holding out a 25 oz. stein of beer away from your body? Join our Finale weekend Stein Hoisting competition presented by 10 Barrel. There will be a Men’s division and a Women’s division ­and the winner of each division will receive a $300 gift card to 10 Barrel. Second place will receive a $150 gift card.

Pond Skimming Championships

The snowpack has held together well to be able to build an epic 100 foot long pond for our annual North American Pond Skimming Championship! The goal is to make it across the long pond without wiping out, and there will be plenty of that! Winners will be determined based on the combined score of two runs for a chance to take home a 2019–20 Winter Season Pass!

Entry fee is $40. New this year we're dividing participants into three age categories:  Adult (19+), Teen (13-18) and Youth (6-12). All registered competitors must check in from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. at the Mt. Bachelor event tent on Sunday, May 26. Pond Skim begins at 10:30 a.m. All late check-ins must do so at the scoring area, located in the pond arena prior to competing.
