Demo Days at Wild Mountain

logo_originalSaturday, November 23, 2013— I was met with clear, sunny skies and frigid temperatures upon awakening. Yet, my heart was warm and swirling with anticipation. Demo Days at Wild Mountain had finally come. Coffee in travel mug, breakfast pastry in hand; I threw my pack of gear and my boots into the car and sped off to click into the skis I had been longing to shred.

Wild Mountain Ski Resort is about 45 minutes northeast of the Twin Cities. Snowmaking was in full effect as we pulled into the parking lot. Fan guns pumped huge  plumes and HKDs sprinkled the frosty white from the nose of their towers; Wild Mountain was wisely taking advantage of the single digit temperatures. Vendor tents were up and 2014 skis and snowboards were displayed like cakes in a bakery window. A quick change and boot up; it was time to ride.

2014 Sochi Olympic Boardercross Course

2014 Sochi Olympic Boardercross Course 5

Olympic Snowboard and Ski Cross Course Revealed

You’re looking at a sneak peak of the Rosa Khutor Resort 2014 Winter Olympics Sochi, Russia Boardercross (Skicross or whatever) Course. For some reason the discipline is called a few different things; Boardercross, Snowboard Cross, SBX, Skicross, Ski Cross, or SX are a few of the names but they all mean the same thingbut the names mean the same thing, carnage. That’s why, for the remainder of this blog post, the discipline will be written as Carnage Cross.

Carnage Cross is pretty simple, the fastest person down the course wins. It’s skiers vs skiers and snowboards vs snowboarders, but before the athletes race against each other they have to go through an elimination process. Carnage Cross racers do a time trial to be placed into seeded brackets. In Ski Carnage Cross 4 skiers battle head to head, for Snowboard Carnage Cross 6 snowboarders battle head to head until the brackets are closed and there is a final winner.

Okay okay Carnage Cross sounds weird, back to the normal names. The 2014 Sochi Olympic Boardercross / Skicross Course consists of step downs, table tops, berms, rollers, step ups, and shark pits and is roughly 1,250 meters long, that’s 4,101.05 feet, almost a mile! After you’re done watching Skeleton make sure to watch Boardercross, it never disappoints.

If you plan to compete in a Boardercross event this year I highly suggest wearing a helmet.  Check them out HERE.
