1:00pmFrozen T-Shirt Contest – 10 t-shirts have been frozen in the icy tundra of Mountain High’s North Resort and the competitors must break them apart and put them on. First one to dawn their frozen shirt wins a goody bag filled with Mountain High schwag.

2:00pmSpin To Win – Height is not so much the issue as rotation in this fun jump contest. Skiers and snowboarders must spin as many times as they can in a single leap.
