Inaugural Dynafit Nachtspektakel at JHMR

Yeah, the Dynafit Nachtspektakel is hard to pronounce, but it is really easy to do. This Thursday, Jan 6th, marks the inaugural Dynafit Nachtspektakel to be held at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Future Nachtspektakels will take place in Aspen, WhiteFace, Cranmore, Arapahoe Basin and Sugarbush, and are designed as a fun, nighttime event which brings people together for a night ski tour, beer and food.
The JHMR event begins at 5:30pm, with a $20 registration (includes drink and appetizers) at JH Sports beforehand from 5-5:30. A limited fleet of Dynafit demos will be available, including what are now being dubbed as the magic elf boots of ski touring, as well as Princeton tech headlamps for the dark, group ascent to the Casper Restaurant and descent back to the base area. This should be a fun time and I’m looking forward to the nighttime descent after a few drinks with friends. Did I hear someone say…Chinese Downhill? (More info on Dynafit Facebook page.)

    thanks for mentioning the $20–that hasn’t been mentioned anywhere else that i’ve seen. i figured the expense of the event was covered by the marketing element. i’ll give it a miss for that price, sadly.

    interesting (cool IMO) that the resort will allow people to ski down within its boundaries after a bunch of cocktails. it’s a shame they won’t let ya do that from the gondi after an event.

    eric…i thought so too! i guess it’s good to have the right people in the right position to make things happen. i think i’ll give them $20 though and support the event. nothing is free.

    I could see spending $20 for an event like this so I looked into the closest one, Sugarbush, and it is $75! Even tho this price includes dinner (better be one helluva steak), I too will pass. Who are they trying to target? Clearly not your average backcountry skier.

    Jerimy, the event at Cranmore is a bit closer to you . . . although unfortunately the price is still bafflingly high:
    “Entry fee is $75 and includes hot chocolate at summit, a hearty Tyrolean buffet and an exclusive Meister Cup pin.”
    Too late though to pay your $75 for the January 1 guided ~1,000′ vertical skin up low- and-moderate angle groomers at Whiteface for a mere three-item dinner plus two drinks.

    to clarify…this event is open to telemark skiers as well.

    If anyone happened to move or pickup my Petzl Tikka XP2 headlamp from the Casper Restuarant during the Nachtspeltakel, I would appreciate any information on getting it back. It disappeared from my pack, which was apparently moved at some point during the event.
