Boyne Mountain – Stash Bash – April 12 & 13, 2014

Ram’s Head Terrain Park

We’re breaking out the stash at Boyne Mountain! We’re talkin’ snow stash and we have lots of it stashed this spring to build a sick terrain park in the Ramshead area. The terrain park crew will be building features a little bit bigger and putting together features that have been rolling around in their heads for months. We’ll be blasting music in the Ramshead area throughout the day to keep your “stoke meter” on high. So come check out what the crew can create when their warped minds work in perfect unison with their machines to create a weekend you just can’t miss.

There will be features in the Ramshead Terrain Park that you have not seen before and many of the features may be a bit bigger than usual, so please “Easy Style” it. Also, there are not any competitions scheduled for this weekend, but the Stash Bash promises to be a great weekend with your snow buddies.
