Events kick off on Saturday, April 7, and everyone’s encouraged to dig deep in their closets and don 60s inspired ski gear before hitting the slopes. New this year are a series of prizes for best 60s costuming.
Not to be missed is the Dummy Downhill race on Sunday, April 8 where groups create, then launch, life sized dummies off a near vertical jump to explode on impact. Points are awarded for originality, design, appearance and explosiveness upon touch-down.
The infamous Slush Cup is back again on Monday, April 9 for costumed contestants to risk life, limb, and humility in their attempt to cross a freezing slush pool on skis or boards. The Slush Cup winner will be rewarded with a 2012/13 season’s ski pass.
Lastly, the 2011/2012 ski season comes to a close on Monday, April 9 with the annual Top to Bottom’s Race. Costumed competitors race from the Top of the World to ring the bell at Bottom’s Bar and Grill. The first person to cross the finish line has the distinction of being crowned Top to Bottom’s champion.
