2017 Box Race - Theme: Celebrating 80 years!


  • Teams of 2, 3 or 4 contestants join forces to build a cardboard box designed to slide down the slope at NES.
  • Corporate teams must have 4 company employees per box.

  • Your box should reflect this year’s theme is our 80th anniversary.

  • The boxes may only use cardboard, tape, glue, wax and decoration and only the cardboard and wax 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.
  • Due to the cancellation of last years race, we will still be having our theme as our 80th anniversary!


  • Corporate teams are invited to enter for a $75 registration fee.
  • Individual teams may enter for free.
  • Registration begins at 11:00am with first round races at 12:00pm and finals to follow.
  • Spectators are welcome at no charge.  Funds raised from this event will go towards Northeast Slopes’ operating expenses and hill improvements!

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!
