King Pine Cardboard Box Derby

King Pine invites creative cardboard box races of all ages and experience levels to their Cardboard Box Derby on Sunday, March 19th, from 11:30am to 1:30pm. Creative racers young in age and young at heart, create a theme and build your carboard box racer and don’t forget to pair it with your own theme music to race down their racecourse designed specifically for the event!

Box racers can be designed for two or four racers and must be built entirely out of cardboard (sorry – no wood or metal allowed!). Boxes may be held together with tape, glue, or may be stitched. Contestants are highly advised to wear helmets for safety.

The entrance fee is $5 per cardboard box and a completed registration form and signed waiver are required to enter the race. Registration, inspection, and style judging opens at 12:00 p.m. in the Fireplace Room. The race will start at 1:00 p.m. at the base of the Open Slope.  Awards will be presented after completion of race at base of the Open Slope under categories of style, speed and durability. Happy racing!! 


King Pine Hosts PSIA & AASI Level 1 Exam January 28-29

East Madison, N.H. — Approximately 20 ski instructors will be at King Pine Ski Area this weekend seeking their Alpine Level 1 certification from the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA). Examiners from the Eastern Division of PSIA will spend two days evaluating the candidates against national certification standards for ski teaching. According to the PSIA-AASI (American Association of Snowboard Instructors) website, certification standards provide a consistent training framework for instructors and represent a standard of competency for ski teaching across the United States that is transferrable from division to division. No matter where you live, once an instructor is certified by PSIA or AASI, they’ll teach from the same platform and to the same standards as PSIA-AASI members from across the country.

“We are excited to be the host ski area for this PSIA Level 1 Exam event,” said Trisha Jacobson, King Pine Ski Area’s Director of Ski and Snowboard School. “Though many of our ski and snowboard instructors, coaches and trainers are already PSIA and AASI Level 1, 2 and 3 certified, this is the first time that King Pine has been the host ski area for a certification exam. I am proud of our 12 new instructor candidates who have been working hard with our training staff to prepare for this event. We also look forward to welcoming instructors from several other ski areas who will be joining us for this event. We wish all the candidates success this weekend and beyond as they join PSIA, expand their professional expertise and bring it all back to their ski areas and into their lessons!”

The event will consist of approximately a 2.62 kilometer route that starts at Milt’s Place at King Pine Ski Area. For anyone who wishes to run further after the commemorative run, it is a beautiful area with bountiful trails and country roads and we encourage you to take in the beauty.

For parking, we recommend parking at Milt’s Place or across the street from the main lodge at King Pine. Registration will begin at 9 AM (only for everyone to sign a waiver, there is no cost for the event) with the event taking place at 10.

We appreciate the willingness of The Hoyts, Laurie Campbell and King Pine Ski Area for being open to us having this event on such short notice.
