Event Details

The 28th annual U.S. National Toboggan Championships will be held Feb. 9-11, 2018, in Camden, Maine!

Each year, up to 425 teams of racers gather to ride traditional wood toboggans down the country’s only remaining gravity-powered 440-foot-long wooden toboggan chute, originally built in 1936, which ends with a slide across frozen Hosmer Pond. Toboggan Nationals is the signature event of the 9-day Winterfest festival with ice sculpting, the CamJam ski and snowboard exhibition, music concert at the Camden Opera House and more in the days leading up to Toboggan Nationals weekend.
Toboggan team registration is underway, and space is limited. Register by Jan. 5 and your team name will be included in the official program.

So, gather your costumes and get ready to race down the chute at the Camden Snow Bowl!

The schedule of events is as follows:
• Friday, Feb. 9: Registration, fun runs, toboggan inspections, and the Banff Film Festival
• Saturday, Feb. 10: Toboggan racing, costume contest parade, food vendors and the Banff Film Festival
• Sunday, Feb. 11: Toboggan racing, finals and awards ceremony
