Hillcross Debut at Granite Gorge Launches New Era for ECS
Clarksburg, Mass. (Dec. 1, 2014) — Sanctioned snowmobile racing in New England resumes this Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 6-7, as East Coast Snocross (ECS) kicks off its fifth season with the debut of Hillcross competition at the beautiful Granite Gorge ski area on Rte. 9 in Roxbury Center, New Hampshire.
Spectator gates open at 9 a.m. each day. Admission is $15 per day for adults, with weekend passes available for $25. Children age 7 and under will be admitted free with a paying adult. Pit passes valid through the weekend are available for an extra $10.
Hillcross racing offers spectators a chance to witness riders in Pro, Trail, Ditch Banger and Junior classes as they launch up the slope. When it was recently brought back into the prestigious ESPN Winter X Games in Aspen, Hillcross returned to the spotlight in winter powersports. It's fast, it's colorful, and it's exhilarating. It's also a true test of man and machine under nature's finest backdrop.
