pats peakHenniker, NH, February 24, 2013 – Pats Peak, New Hampshire’s premier snowsports destination, announces its 22nd Annual Hawaiian Weekend Celebration, March 9th and 10th, 2013. 

Two days of fun for the whole family. Hawaiian Weekend is a blow-out of spring skiing/riding, tropical decorations, NASTAR races, Hot Tubs and a Rail Jam. The theme of the weekend is “Hawaiian Weekend Island Fev-Ah” with the sounds of Jah Spirit Reggae Band in the Sled Pub both Saturday and Sunday. Magic Hat Beer is the sponsor of the Après-Ski Party in the Sled Pub both days, which includes fun raffle prizes.

The NASTAR Race course on the Downdraft trail is open to the public from 11am to 3pm on Saturday and Sunday.

On Sunday, there is a Man of Steel Rail Jam in Turbulence Terrain Park at 1pm. Registration for the Rail Jam is from 10:30am to 12pm in the Valley Lodge on Sunday morning with a $20 Entry Fee plus a Lift Ticket or Pats Peak Season Pass is required; release forms must be signed and ages 17 and under need a parent/guardian signature.

An intense spirit of competition between Pats Peak departments to “out-tropic” each other, adds another level of excitement to the weekend. Every year, each department is responsible for outfitting its facilities in outrageous tropical attire. At the end of the day on Sunday, departments square off in an employee snow volleyball tournament.

“Spring is in the air; people are in shorts and flowered shirts and leis; and the lodge and slopes are decked out in palm trees. Our guests feel transported to a tropical island, right toward the end of winter when they need it most,” says Jim Wall, Director of Services. “Guests enjoy all the effort we put into decorating for Hawaiian Weekend.”
