We're back with year three of the largest and most fun snowboard race in West Virginia! Berming Man, a partnership between Oakley and Mountaineer Terrain Parks, is a traditional banked slalom snowboard race with multiple bumped and steeped berm sections that will test riders edge control and fear tolerance. 

Riders are ranked on the best of two runs with the fastest time of the day going home with prizing from event sponsors, a custom medal made by Oakley, and the title as "Fastest Snowboarder in West Virginia." All ages are welcome, and there will be a men's, women's, and grom (15 and under) divisions!

The race will take place on Saturday, March 2nd, but riders are encouraged to save their spot by pre-registering. There will also be registration taking place on Friday night (3/1) at the Connection Nightclub. Practice runs will start at 9:30 am and first drop at 11:30 am. Full schedule included below.

Racers will have the option to purchase a lift pass at the discounted rate of $45 for the event.

There is a $20 entry fee that will get participants free cover at The Connection the night before the race, a custom Berming Man racer decal, and usage of the Ski Patrol line during the event for quick turn around times. All riders are required by the resort to be wearing a helmet while on course. 

Top finisher prizes and product tosses will be in full effect at the after party/award ceremony at the Big Top. PLACEHOLDER
