Day 2 at Grenade Games 8 is one hell of a party

Words & photos by SKS

The 8th Annual Grenade Games wrapped up Sunday March 25th at Bear Mountain with maybe half as many people on snow as day one.  My guess?  Everybody partied way too hard Saturday night, as rumor predicted bad weather for Sunday.  The day started off super sunny with a little bit of wind and as the day progressed the wind got stronger. By the time 4pm rolled around it was snowing like crazy. 

Sunday’s events: Relax, Drink, and Dual Slalom.  The level or organization decreased considerably on Sunday, and those who wanted to enter the dual slalom needed only to show up at the start gate. Depending on your luck, or lack thereof, you would be racing Danny Kass, Lucas Magoon, Eric Messier or maybe just a girl or first -season rider.  Magoon and Messier both dominated, but in the end there could only be one winner, and yet again it was just a random homie. Congrats doggie!

I wish the photos could capture the spirit of the Grenade Games, but I fear that that’s literally impossible.  I made more new friends this weekend than I did all winter. I saw more rugged falls this weekend than I did all winter. I haven’t seen that many people so excited to just ride with their friends and mess around, well, ever.  Seriously. 

Make sure you get your crew down there next winter as something this good rarely lasts forever.

Big thanks to the Grenade Crew, SPT, Bear Mountain and all the other generous sponsors who helped make this thing happen!
