Nestea COOL is bringing snow to the beach?and where there?s snow, you?ll find snowboarders.

The 2002 Olympic-medal winning snowboarders Ross Powers, Danny Kass and J.J. Thomas will visit Santa Monica beach from 11 a.m. ? 12 p.m. on Friday, April 12 to judge the Nestea COOL Snowman Showdown and play in nearly a foot of real snow that will cover the beach. Ten to 15 teams of bathing-suit-clad beach-goers will join the boarders and participate in a snowman-building contest ? on the beach. The teams will use their creativity to sculpt some not-so-typical snowmen and walk away with $500 COOL cash for the most creative, best celebrity likeness and best overall snowman.

11a.m. ? 12 p.m.
