This race is a re-creation of a race held at Northeast Slopes in 1938 drawing racers from all over Central VT and NH. A racer, starting at the summit, runs a single bamboo slalom course to the bottom where they then grab and ride our infamous "world's fastest rope tow" back to the summit and descend back to the bottom through a high speed downhill course - competing the three segments as one timed run. Open to all types of skis. 

2015 Box Race - March 1

Theme: "It Takes a Village" Celebrate the role that NES plays in our community - especially the lives of our children - and the role that our community plays in keeping NES running!  (Need Box ideas? WRVS, kids who "grow up" at the tow, volunteers, our amazing kitchen staff, the towns that support us - Bradford, Topsham and Corinth, the businesses that support us...) Teams of 2, 3 or 4 contestants join forces to build a cardboard box designed to slide down the slope at NES.   The box should reflect this year’s theme "It takes a Village".  The boxes may only use cardboard, tape, glue, wax and decoration and only the cardboard may touch the snow. Teams are paired up and race down the hill in a round-robin style elimination.   Awards are given for fastest box, best decoration and most impressive self-destruction.  Corporate teams are invited to enter for a $50 registration fee.  Individual teams may enter for free. Registration begins at 9:00 AM with Races at 11:00 and Finals to follow. 


Please note: If you plan to ride the rope tows, we recommend you bring inexpensive leather work-gloves.  These are sold at the lodge for $8 in case you forget.  Due to insurance restrictions, Northeast Slopes cannot offer ski or snowboard rentals. 

Snow-tubing and sledding are strictly prohibited!
