Volcom Stone Peanut Butter and Rail Jam - February 8th
Youth Ride Along Day (YRAD) February 9th
Blue Mountain continues to provide access to Alpine Sports by hosting Youth Ride Along Day. YRAD gives seven underprivileged children access to snowboarding by gifting them with all new hard goods, outerwear and one on one coaching. The group spends the day on-hill learning the basics of boarding including balancing, edging and control. YRAD is run in conjunction with Big Brothers and will arrive at Blue Mountain by 8:30am.
Off-hill, Blue Mountain Village pays tribute to the Olympic Spirit with games-themed ice sculptures placed throughout the pedestrian village. Arriving Thursday February 5, the ice sculptures include a Ski Racer, Freestyle Snowboarder, Figure Skater, the Olympic Torch and a 6 foot wide carving of the Olympic Rings, located in the Events Plaza at Blue Mountain Village. Additionally, Village restaurants will have all available television screens tuned to the Winter Games.
