On Sunday, May 21, in spring conditions, Donner Ski Ranch and Northern California’s Heckler Magazine held a little get-together to say, “thank you to all who helped out” through an epic winter, according to Heckler Editor Sunny Mayugba.
The day featured a big-air contest, raffle, barbecue, and five bands. Director of Marketing Don Bostick said it created, “a good atmosphere and a very positive attitude.” The cheap and plentiful bottles of Heckler Brau may have had a hand in those good vibes as well. “There were beers and smiles everywhere,” said Mayugba.
Notables in a crowd of approximately 600 were Noah Salasnek, Tucker Fransen, Aaron Vincent, Wendy Powell, and Kellie Wright. With the party’s apparent success, it seems these festivities will become an annual event.
