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 our two jumps (option of small or large). This is also one of the best spectator events of the year, complete with sun, snow and a cash BBQ & 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.
