Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area’s spring of wacky events continues Saturday with the Kayak Slush Classic — an event the ski area hopes to make an annual tradition.
Bogus describes the event as a combination of kayaking and boarder/skier cross. Competitors will hit the course in groups of four with the two fastest racers advancing. Racers must sign a liability waiver (parents/guardians must sign for those 16 and older; those under 16 are ineligible), helmets are required and kayaks/paddles must be provided by the racers.
Registration is $20 cash the day of the event. Register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rider check-in is at 10 a.m., course inspection is at 11 a.m. and racing begins at noon.
