The Mattress Race

Sat, March 16

Get out your old beat up mattress and put it to good use!  Design and decorate your old twin, full, double, queen or king mattress and race it down our course and you'll be eligible for a great prize!

This years theme is "Spring in Maine."

The race course will be set up on the Main Slope.  Registration is from 9am-Noon in Guest Services.  The Race is at 1pm.  All Race participants must have a lift ticket or seasons pass, valid for that day.  Kids 17 and under MUST have a parent's signature on a Shawnee Peak Liability Release form to participate.  No air mattresses, waterbeds, or box springs.  You may bring a tarp or something flat and slippery to slide on, but no skis or anything that will elevate your mattress.  There is a 4-person maximum riding the sled.

There are Shawnee Peak logoed prizes for the best, most uniquely-decorated mattress. 

The fastest mattress will win an overnight stay in the Pleasant Mountain Yurt or Cabin.  

If you wish, Shawnee Peak will dispose of your mattress for you after the race in the most environmentally-sensitive manner possible.
