It may feel like spring, but for skiers and snowboarders, winter is finally arriving this weekend. On Saturday, is hosting a Wicked Winter Carnival at .
Come Saturday, several skiiers and snowboarders will like Wicked Sharp more if they win the $300 first prize, $150 second prize, or $50 third prize at the Wicked Sharp Ski and Sport Winter Carnival at Blue Hills–also sponsored by Snowriders.
"This Saturday we’re doing a winter carnival from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.," Co-owner J.P. Bedard said. "There will be a bunch of free games for kids to do, like carnival games–hula hoop with all heavy, snow clothing on, snowball accuracy, a version of a ring toss, throwing a hat onto a snowman’s head," said Bedard. "We're having an X-Games competition of skiiers and snowboarders."
Prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place winners in both the ski and snowboard competitions. There will also be raffles, giveaways, and free BBQ.
The price is $20 to register for the competition for ages 14 and up. Folks can register online here at Wicked Sharp's website, or at the store in West Roxbury. Participants younger than 18 need a permission slip signed by a guardian, and all participating must sign a waiver, and helmets are required. The carnival is from 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. at Blue Hills Ski Area in Canton on Saturday, February 4.
Also, true to his word, Bedard provided this link that will save fifth-graders on lift tickets at more than 30+ participating ski/snowboard sites. Fill out the form, send in $10 and you get 25 free lift tickets.
