Wrightwood, California—Mountain High’s annual spring break celebration begins this Friday, March 31 st, 2006. Three straight weekends (Friday – Sunday) of music and activities. Each day is filled with contests, prizes, giveaways, live music and/or special guest DJs, celebrity radio remotes and so much more. Events are free with a lift ticket and open to the general public. Helmets are required for Big Air and the Rail Jam. Children under the age of 18 must have a parents signature in order to participate.
Says Julie Kasper, past Spring Break participant, “This is the most fun I’ve had on the mountain. The air is warm. The snow is soft. And Pond Skimming is just the best.
11am Big Air
Watch as skiers and snowboarders go big on a brand new, base-area kicker specially designed for Spring Jam. Height, style and landing are what it is all about in this juicy jump-off and awards are based on the judge’s results and audience participation.
12pm Frozen T-Shirt Contest
Got a warm personality? You will need it in this furiously frozen competition. Contestants must break apart a frozen Mountain High T-Shirt and put it on before their competitors do.
1pm Dash For Swag
Think you are a fast runner? Try running at 7,000ft … in your ski or snowboard boots. Those with truly snappy speed will take home a grip of prizes. Separate divisions for skiers and snowboarders.
2pm Polar Bear Pond Skimming
In this quintessential Spring Break activity, skiers and snowboarders must cross a 40 foot pond of freezing cold water or take the Polar Bear plunge. Anything goes in this hair raising, toe curling competition.
Now with new snow on the ground and most of the mountain open, Mountain High is looking forward to one of its best Spring Jams yet.
