VADITO, N.M. — Masters of Duct Tape, rejoice: the Ninth Annual Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort Cardboard Derby returns to Sipapu this coming Saturday.
Sipapu’s Cardboard Derby is the resort’s most popular event and New Mexico’s only cardboard derby. Participants construct vessels using cardboard, duct tape, string, twine and paint only and race them down the mountain as they aim for a bull’s eye in the base area. Points are awarded based on how close the derbies hit the target.
