Aspen/Snowmass, Colo., – March 29, 2010 – This weekend marked the second and final weekend for the 10th Annual Bud Light Spring Jam. The final Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert Series of the season, featuring The Greyboy Allstars, kicked off the weekend on Friday night, March 26, at the base of Aspen Mountain. The crowd was dancing all night long despite heavy snowfall that would leave nearly 1 foot of powder waiting for skiers and riders on Saturday morning.
On Saturday, March 27, the skies cleared just in time for the 3rd Annual Schneetag in Snowmass. This event involves teams of four who create crafts to fly down the ski hill into – and ideally across – a giant pond. Results are based on a combination of the teams theme, outfits, skit and of course how far they travel across the pond. The 3rd place team traveled all the way from Minnesota with their craft to compete in Schneetag.

1st Place: Bedrock featuring Nate Berkel, Nate Hadden, Lance Ammerman and Katie Mann. Team Bedrock took home a complimentary trip to the ESPN X Games in Los Angeles this summer.
