This past weekend we attended our second to last event for the winter season The 4th Annual Hill Drag at Bear Creek Mountain Resort in Macungie Pennsylvania. Some have said this is the premier hill drag event of the east, I would have to agree. This event had more than 1000 spectators, with racers coming from as far away as Canada and Mich. Teams that made the trip included: Team Priceless from Michigan, Busted Knuckles Racing from Canada and several teams from Penn., including WakPak Racing, Sled Tek Racing and Patrick Hoopes Racing. With all the events we attend throughout the season, this is one I would recommend to everyone. It is held at a great resort offering everything from great dining to a spa with an indoor and outdoor pool and hot tubs. What better way to relax from a day of racing then sitting in a hot tub or enjoying a massage. They offer discounted room rates for the racers and spectators attending the event. On to information from the event, they have just 9 classes ranging from Kitty Cat/120 all the way to Open Outlaw, including vintage. The event had the largest turn out I have seen, with a total of 223 snowmobiles, giving way to 373 entries. This made for some huge sled counts, with the largest being the 800 stock class with 101 entries. Including a surprising 25 Open Outlaw entries with some huge horsepower machines, making for some great racing and super close photo finishes. This is another event that runs a double elimination race, making sure that every racer gets at least two runs up the hill. They do limit each sled to enter only 2 classes, which helps with the organization of the event. The racing started at 11:00 am and was completed by 9:00 pm with no major issues or arguments. I would have to say that it was impressive to get thru that many entries in that amount of time. Some of the winning results of the event are: 600 mod Nick Stillson from Michigan, 800 stock Bobby Hankins from Sled Tek Racing, 800 mod and Open Outlaw Josh Emmi from WakPak Racing. Cash and trophies were awarded to the first and second place finishers. The trophies were supplied by Kurtz Performance and JJ’s Outlaw Photography, two of the sponsors for the event. The crew from Bear Creek Mountain Resort in charge of set up and running of the event was headed up by Dustin Yeager. His crew did a great job with keeping the event running smoothly, with as little confusion as possible. Work is already beginning for next year’s event. There is talk of making this a two day event. If there was ever an event on the east coast you wanted to attend, this would be one to put on the list for next year. Super fun and great entertainment at an exceptional venue. More info: BCMR.com.

When I woke up this morning I thought it was going it was going to be another let down. But it wasn’t, as soon as I went outside to shovel the walks I realized I should be packing my gear today. The 4” of snow was so light and fluffy I was sweeping it off the walks with a broom. This kind of snow almost never falls from the ski in Macungie.
I quickly packed up my gear and a quick lunch and headed to work. Pulling in the employee lot the trails looked great. I went to my office checked emails and finished any pressing projects then quickly booted up.
Decided to get F-chair side as fast as we could so we took e chair up, came down Drifter and went through the Family Park, both trails were excellent and there was still plenty of fresh snow to be found. We then lapped Timberline, Broadway, Polar Bear and ended the day with a quick run down Sasquatch.
This was by far my best day out at Bear Creek this season, the snow was perfect, crowds were minimal and every run still had un-tracked lines. Now as I am sitting here typing this all I can think about it booting back up and taking a few more runs, but unfortunately I cannot play all day and have to do some work.
If you have the time I highly recommend getting out and enjoying the slopes today, or at least sometime this week.
