Carboard Sled Races At Spruce

This evening, after the resort closed for the day, the trails were all swept, and everyone clocked out and changed into their 'civilian' clothes, the resort's employees gathered at Spruce Camp, the new base lodge at the bottom of Slalom Hill and West Slope for the annual employee Cardboard Sled Races. The competition goes back years, pitting resort departments against each other, each building sleds with only 3 materials: cardboard, plastic bags, and duct tape. The races began at 5:30 p.m. and were followed by dinner in Spruce Camp and an awards ceremony for the 3 fastest and most creative sleds. This was the first at Spruce, after years at Midway base; and, it seemed there was universal agreement that this year's Race and venue were the best ever!
