DOVER- The acclaimed terrain park crew at Mount Snow’s Carinthia Parks is planning to build one more rail garden on the last bit of snow left over from this past winter, which skiers and snowboarders are invited to enjoy from 10 am to 4 pm this Saturday, May 24, for the annual Peace Pipe Jam. The event is free of charge and Mount Snow plans to have a barbecue with refreshments throughout the day.

Peace Pipe Jam started in 2008 as a fun way to take advantage of the pile of snow that was still left over from the superpipe in late May. So the park crew smoothed it out, planted a couple of terrain park features, and started to spread the word, not really knowing if anyone would show up. When a huge crowd of skiers and riders arrived the day of the event, it was decided that as long as there’s snow, Peace Pipe Jam will be an annual occurrence. The event traditionally draws hundreds of people, but is entirely contingent on weather.

During the winter, Carinthia offers skiers and snowboarders eight different terrain parks for all ability levels as well as a halfpipe with 18-foot walls. Carinthia was voted the number-one terrain park in the East by TransWorld Snowboarding and SKI Magazine for the 2013/2014 season.
