DOVER– The annual influx of thousands of endurance athletes, their friends and families will once again be rolling into the Mount Snow Valley when Tough Mudder New England returns to Mount Snow on May 31 and June 1. This will be the fifth Tough Mudder held at Mount Snow - the resort hosted two events over the summer of 2012 – with each of the four previous events serving as an economic boon to the local area with lodging sold out for miles and restaurants busy catering to who thousands of people that come to participate or spectate.

Officials anticipate the 2014 event to be equally as popular with both the resort and local businesses reveling in the opportunity to host such a large group of people during what is traditionally a need period for the resort town.

Participants traditionally rate the Tough Mudder New England stop as one of the best on the endurance event’s global schedule, with people from all over the Northeast making their way to southern Vermont.

This year’s Tough Mudder course will feature some new obstacles and will take participants on a 10-mile jaunt up and down Mount Snow. A total of about 20 different challenging obstacles set throughout the course will feature mud, water, electric shocks, and barbed wire. When participants complete the course they are awarded a trademark orange headband and a cold beer before enjoying the finish party in Mount Snow’s Main Base Area.
