If you’ve driven through Boston on the Pike or walked through Boston’s Fenway area recently, perhaps you’ve noticed something out of the ordinary about America’s Most Beloved Ski Resort, er, Ballpark.
What you’ve been seeing is a colossal 14-story skiing and snowboarding ramp that will turn Fenway Park into the site of the final stop on both the U.S. Freeskiing Grand Prix and the U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix. The event, dubbed as Polartec Big Air at Fenway, will feature a number of former as well as future Olympians, with the winners taking home a pretty sweet prize of $150,000.
A pair of gold medalists from the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi are slated to be among the competitors, including skier Joss Christensen and snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg. Gus Kenworthy and Vermont’s own Devin Logan both took home silver medals on the men’s and women’s sides respectively in 2014, and they too will be taking to Fenway’s mammoth ramp, which is three times taller than the iconic Green Monster.
Polartec Big Air at Fenway kicks off on Thursday Night with the finals on the snowboarding side, while the skiers will get their turn on Friday night. Tickets to the event are still available and can be purchased for Thursday night only or for Friday night only.
