Kitty Litter Cardboard Box RaceFebruary 18, 2014
A fun, free, February Vacation tradition for kids. Build your own “vessel” out of cardboard boxes and go head-to-head in a series of heats held at the base of Wildcat.
Rules: The bottom of the vessel must consist entirely of cardboard--no duct tape or plastic surfaces. We do not supply cardboard or building material for this event. All vessels will be inspected to make sure they fit the standards prior to racing. Decorating is encouraged. After the event, all entries must be properly disposed of and we encourage participants to recycle their boxes.
Entry Fee: Free
Pre-registration Required: Guest Services 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Event Start: 2:00 p.m. (Small slope across from bridge. Bring box to top start. Sorry participants will not be able to enter once event begins.)
Awards/prizes: Prizes will be awarded outside immediately after the event for fastest, best decorated, best crash, and judge's choice.
HELMETS RECOMMENDED NOT REQUIRED FOR THIS EVENT
Be sure to make it to the Nine Lives Lunch Tray Luge the day after this event for more fun and tradition on February Vacation Week at Wildcat Mountain!
With the purchase of a scenic gondola ticket, join us on a free monthly tour at Wildcat this summer & fall. An Appalachian Mountain Club naturalist will lead an interactive and educational summit tour followed by a guided hike down.
Daily summer operations conclude on September 1 with our fall operating schedule starting on September 6. We'll then run weekends only from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until October 13 when we wrap up our summer operating schedule and look forward to our winter opening!
