Longboard races March 15

The weather forecast for two days of snow last weekend and two days of snow this coming weekend have hopes high for the World Championship Longboard races scheduled Sunday, March 15, beginning at noon on the Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl hill.

Period attire is encouraged for participants and spectators alike. Food, drink, music, maybe dancing and definitely exciting ski runs on longboards, are the top entertainment of the day.

All ages are invited, two-legged and four-legged, with their responsible adult companions. This is the last of the three longboard events for the season and predictions are for a big “hurrah” as number two in the series was cancelled due to lack of snow.

Signup for participation begins around 10:30 a.m., no qualifying certification required, only courage. Some race qualifying skis are available for loan on a first-come, first-served basis. Only official “ski dope” is allowed for race competitions.

Defending their 2020 wins in January in the men’s category are Adam “the interloper” Henriquez, Dale “the butcher” Lambert and Max “el blanco Diablo” Breedlove.

Women defending their claims based on their wins in January are Rachel “the rascal” Bauer, Truly “fast” Tanner and Jessica “Johnsville” Nelson.
