The Mattress Race

Sat, March 17

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

The Fastest Mattress will win an overnight stay in the Pleasant Mountain Yurt or Cabin.

There is also Shawnee Peak loged prizes for the best, most uniquely-decorated mattress. This years theme is "80 years of Shawnee Peak"

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

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