The beginner ski and ride hill at the Frisco Adventure Park will be hosting the 8th Annual Bubble Gum Race Series on six Wednesdays in February and March. From the “never ever” to seasoned racer, all levels and ages are encouraged to compete in this free race series made possible through a partnership with Team Summit.
This fun, non-competitive, community ski and snowboard race series provides an opportunity for both kids and adults to try out racing in a casual environment. Racers will have the chance to race the course multiple times, and the races will not be timed. Instead, participants will be given pieces of bubble gum, which they will keep or give away based on their race finishes. The racer who has the most bubble gum at the end of the races, wins. All ages and abilities are welcome to participate in the Bubble Gum Series races and friendly competition between parents, siblings and friends is encouraged.
“There are so many great competitive events in this community, but they can be intimidating to both kids and adults who are thinking of trying racing for the first time. The Adventure Park beginner ski and ride hill is laid-back, with free parking next to a beautiful lodge and is a great venue for those who want to just keep it fun,” stated Katie Barton, General Manager of the Frisco Adventure Park.
