DOVER- Mount Snow presents the Bud Light Glade-iator on Sunday, April 2.

The Glade-iator competition is a mogul skiing contest on the soft bumps of the legendary Ripcord, one of the steepest trails in the East. Competitors will show off their bump and jump skills and will be judged on a combination of time, form, line, and aerial maneuvers off one of two jumps (option of small or large). This is also one of the best spectator events of the year, complete with sun, snow, a cash barbecue, and the Bud Light bar. Ripcord will be closed to the public, so the best way to get there is to take River Run from the top of the Canyon Express lift. There are men’s and women’s divisions for each age category: 17 and under, 18 to 35, 36 to 49, and 50 and older.

From 8 am to 9:30 am registration is in the Main Base Lodge (near Tony’s Pizza). From 9 to 11 am, practice on Ripcord (weather permitting), at 11 am, the Bump Competition on Ripcord will begin and run to the end of the event.

Tickets are $35 if bought online, $45 day of the event. Tickets can be purchased at All online purchases will receive a 2017 Glade-iator T-shirt.

Lift ticket required but not included.
