Skiiers and snowboarders have one more shot to take to Shames Mountain before it closes for the season.

The last weekend on the slopes will take place this Saturday and Sunday, and My Mountain Co-op members have two big events planned to mark the closure of the mountain.

On Sunday, Loaded Sports will host its annual Throwdown quarter-pipe competition from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. A waiver and helmets are required to participate.

On Sunday the new owners of the hill will carry on the tradition of years past with the Slush Cup. The goal of the event is to ski or board across a 45-foot long pool of slushy water at the bottom of the hill. The Slush Cup will happen at 4 p.m. on the bunny hill, and will be the last event.

The closure of Shames is taking place on the same weekend as last year.
