CAMDEN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- In about two weeks thousands of people will converge in Camden for the twenty-second annual U.S. National Toboggan Championships.

The competition attracts people from all over the world in part because of the camaraderie but mostly it's for the thrill

Organizers say registrations are ahead this year and they still have a few spots left in the new experimental class.

Even though mother nature has not exactly been helpful this winter, the staff at the camden snowbowl says not to worry, they're on it.

"With good cold conditions I can do it in about 36 hours. We don't do straight 36 hours, it's you know five or six here, five or six there, touch it up, check it over," said Snowbowl Chute Master Stuart Young. "Obviously it's easier to make ice down at the bottom of the chute where it's flatter than up at the top."

The U.S. National Toboggan Championships are set for the weekend of February 10.
