Snowboarding, Culture and Community. East Street Archives Presents HOMESICK at Stratton
HOMESICK Snowboarding Contest at Stratton Mountain Resort: Stratton Mountain and East Street Archives join to celebrate the history, tradition and progression of a sport that got its start right here at Stratton, Vermont, with an event that brings the community together through snowboarding and creativity.
HOMESICK makes its debut March 24-26 with three days of competition for all ages and abilities, art, photography, speaker series, vintage board room, and more.
This new event will be a homecoming for the Who’s Who of Snowboarding, led by Olympic Gold Medalist Ross Powers, who still calls Stratton home, along with today’s leading athletes like Zeb Powell and amateurs, young and OG, to compete where it all began.
Register now, before the roster fills. Olympic medals and US Open trophies welcome but not required.
HOMESICK Snowboarding Contest at Stratton – Featured Events
OG DOWNHILL – FRIDAY, MARCH 24
Before there was a halfpipe, or slopestyle or rails… snowboard events were all downhill. Here’s your chance to strap in like it’s 1983 – the year Stratton first welcomed snowboarding. Even if that’s long before you were born.
POWERS RETRO PIPE – SATURDAY, MARCH 25
The 150-foot old-school halfpipe will be cut by Toby Malandrinos and the Stratton Parks Crew on East Byrnes Side, scene of landmark events and last built in 1997. Remember when 9-year-old Shaun White foreran the course or 17-year-old amateur Tricia Byrnes bested the pros to win her first trophy? All the legends were here. Terje Haakonsen, Jeff Brushie, Shaun Palmer, Shannon Dunn, Tina Basich, Barrett Christy … the list is long. And more than a few will be back.
ZEBULON RAIL JAM – SUNDAY, MARCH 26
Stratton Mountain School grad, X Games Medalist and snowboarding superstar Zeb Powell will unveil a custom rail designed and built for him by Lane Knaack, the renowned terrain park architect who grew up riding Stratton with the crew you’ll see featured in the East Street Archives book. You won’t want to miss this event, brought to you by Planet Zebulon.
