Nothing marks the end of winter like the Loaded Sports Throwdown free ski and snowboard event at Shames Mountain.

The 2016 Loaded Throwdown is the latest in a long tradition of yearly events that Prince Rupert ski and skate shop Loaded Sports hosts, in partnership with many product sponsors.

Scheduled this year for Saturday, April 2 at Shames Mountain, Loaded owner Marc Page is making the event free for all ages, with a parental signature required for those under 19. Helmets are also mandatory.

Novice and open categories for those aged 16-and-up will be held for participants as well as younger age groups for both genders and a new ‘Dinosaurs’ division for skiers and snowboarders aged 30-plus.

Prizes are available for every entrant no matter how they do in the contests. Registration will take place from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and the contest gets underway at 1 p.m. Prizes will be awarded on the deck at Galloway’s Bar after the event.
