Sugarbush Castlerock Extreme Challenge 2018As spring approaches, we feel compelled to point out that, even under the best of circumstances, there is only so much time left to hit the slopes. Luckily, our Mad River Valley B&B has Sugarbush Resort for a next-door neighbor. That convenience spells easy access to great skiing and special events like the upcoming Castlerock Extreme!

Much as we enjoy spring, it is with some sadness that we bid adieu to winter and all the great pastimes it affords us. But wait, let’s not be too hasty! There is still time to hit those slopes and bust that powder, as the Sugarbush event calendar would remind us. In fact, one of the most exciting events of the season is nearly upon us: the annual Castlerock Extreme Challenge!

Castlerock Extreme is the longest running, unconventional terrain competition in the East. Skiers stream to Sugarbush every year for the chance to go toe to toe against each other and Castlerock Peak’s fabled terrain. The run has steeps, moguls, drops, and rock bands enough to keep any skier on their toes.

Castlerock Extreme is part of the Ski the East Freeride Tour. Competitors are scored on their line, control, fluidity, technique and style, with a cash purse of $1,000. Only 80 registration spots are available and tend to fill very quickly. The event is an exciting one both for competitors and or spectators alike. You do NOT want to miss it!
