Recess “Easy Does It” at Beech Mountain a Major Success

Recess hosted a boisterous event at Beech Mountain on Mar. 4 called “Easy Does It” where the focus was on having fun, rather than competing with one another for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. 

“While those are great and all, at some point the kids just have to get out there and rip with each other,” J.P., the owner of Recess, said, “and enjoy snowboarding for what it is.”

Recess wanted to have an event where the people in the High Country, regardless of age or experience and skill level, could come out and just have a great time shredding it on the slopes. And that’s just what happened!

The Beech Mountain Park Crew made it all possible by putting up the most impressive setups of the year with transitions, creativity and air time that allowed Recess to come out and provide the most fun day on the slopes as possible. 

The entire day was full of fun, tricks, tweaks, grabs, hot dogs, style and much more! Thanks to the fact that the contest pressure was out the window, all the boarders, whether beginner or advanced, in the community were able to come out and thrash around on the slopes while feeding off of each other’s good vibes. 

“At the end various awards were given out,” J.P. said, “and the down hill foot race for scattered prizes was all time carnage.”

Hot dogs were a major component of the event.

The downhill foot race for scattered prizes was intense chaos that added to the fun of the day.

“Easy Does It” was all about coming together, having a great time doing what everyone loves and vibing off of each other’s positivity and fun.
