Danny Poirier edges teammate Mathieu Morin in historic battle

PHOENIX, N.Y. (Apr. 4, 2016) – While Mother Nature did her absolute best to prevent several major winter events from taking place here in the northeast, the New York-based Ingles Performance snocross team battled the elements and came away with another Pro Open championship.

Quebec veteran Danny Poirier was dedicated to capturing his sixth regional points title in 2016, yet his fellow countryman and teammate almost took it away. Mathieu Morin was back in top form last winter, riding as fast and consistently as he did in 2011 when he won the ECS title. In the final tally after six weekends of racing (three races were canceled due to a lack of snow), Poirier edged Morin by a mere point to secure the crown. It was easily one of the closest battles in series history. (more…)

CLARKSBURG, Mass. (April 4, 2016) – In one of the closest Pro class championship battles in series history, Quebec native Danny Poirier overcame a number of mechanical issues and a hard-charging teammate to record his sixth career title, as East Coast Snocross (ECS) concluded an abbreviated yet highly competitive 2016 racing season.

Poirier, of St. Theodore, edged Mathieu Morin by the narrowest of margins after 11 Pro Open finals were contested. The Ingles Performance/Ski-doo riders battled side-by-side all season, with Poirier sweeping the finals in Bangor, Maine, and Morin notching a sweep of his own at the season finale at Pittston Farm. Congratulations to our six-time champion and his teammate for their historic one-two finish in points. It was a thrill to see the great battles, and we hope to see more in 2017.

NEW SNOW, SNOWMAKING & TON OF EVENTS HIGHLIGHT MLK WEEKEND AT ATTITASH & WILDCAT

Bartlett & Pinkham Notch, NH – Attitash Mountain Resort and Wildcat Mountain have been and continue to make snow around the clock with the focus on expanding terrain for the long MLK holiday weekend. Mother Nature has also assisted with a significant snow fall Tuesday night with Wildcat Mountain picking up eight inches of snow and Attitash receiving six inches and significant additional snow is forecasted for the weekend.

Wildcat Mountain has taken advantage of every opportunity to be making snow since early November opening on November 25 and have been operating daily since then with multiple summit-to-base trails and routes open. Wildcat is currently making snow on the Wild Kitten trail for the weekend. It is a favorite among all abilities, but an especially inviting cruiser for novice skiers and snowboarders. It is over a mile in length. Wildcat expects to have half its total acreage open for skiing and riding this weekend.

Attitash Mountain Resort has recently opened up all connecting trails between its two mountains. The snowmaking and grooming teams will be pushing hard through the week to open many additional trails. Snowmaking is underway on Upper and Lower Cathedral, Lower Saco, Chicken’s Pitch and Ammonoosuc on the Attitash side. At Bear Peak, snowmakers have completed Trillium, Moonbeam and Reckoning and are firing up Wandering Skis. Snowmaking continues on Lower Myth Maker. Attitash expects to have over 50% of its 68 trails available and over 60% of its acreage. Attitash will also be adding a terrain park on Bear Peak for the weekend.

Attitash & Wildcat offer the only reciprocal ticket & pass program in New Hampshire. Lift tickets and season passes are valid for use at both areas. The ski areas are located a short 20-minute drive from one another and will offer a combined 50 trails, over 268 acres, and terrain park features for skiing & riding this upcoming holiday weekend.

For on-snow events, Attitash has a Rail Jam slated for this Saturday that will kick-off of the three-event Attitash Freeride Series. Snowmaking has been underway all this week on the Lower Myth Maker trail and the terrain park build has begun for Saturday’s Rail Jam.

Both ski areas offer great après entertainment all season long. The Wildcat Pub features musician Ryan St. Onge on Friday and DJ Mike for this Saturday. Attitash will feature musician Scott Baer performing in The Den at Bear Peak while the popular local band Livin’ The Dream perform in Ptarmigan’s Pub Saturday afternoon from 1 to 4 pm.
