Al Mapperley (Finance Manager) and Tony Bowater (CEO) imagining the sheer terror about to be experienced by whomever is brave enough to pilot this deathtrap in the upcoming Slush Cup.
The Slush Cup is always an amazing way to close off another super successful ski season at our favourite local winter playground - Rainbow Ski Field. Bowater Toyota have been principle sponsor of this event for the last couple of years and it is an absolute blast! If you haven't seen a slush cup before you need to get up the mountain this weekend and get involved.
It has been postponed a couple of times already this season due to too much snow falling over the last couple of weekends (that can never be a bad thing), but with this weekend being the final hoorah - the closing weekend for the season, and with still some decent snow on the ground, it is the perfect time to be doing the runs - and due to the warmer weather we can expect to see a wild array of costumes to make it all the more interesting!
The BMG Bowater Toyota Slush Cup is a fun family friendly event involving a purpose built pond in the middle of the skifield with a nice entry slope, an expanse of quite cold and slushy water and a nice exit ramp - all to facilitate the gentle art of gracefully skimming across the surface on your skis or snowboard, or failing spectacularly in a flurry of wailing and flailing.
The AWESOME86 Sled of doom doesn't have the same "skimming" qualities of a nice pair of skis or a snow board, but it does have a super smooth metal bottom plate. What is the worse that could happen?
