The 4th Annual Schneetag event took place in winter-like conditions on Aspen Mountain’s closing day, yesterday, April 10. This hilarious event invites teams of four to create a craft that they pilot down a slope and attempt to float across a 30×20 foot pond. Despite the snow and chilly temps, most team members were brave enough to jump in the pond, receiving enthusiastic cheers from the large closing day crowd.
1st Place – The Snug Life – Featuring Leandra Sivess, Brandon Darnton, Zac Paris and Andre Kirsch. These four received a free trip and VIP passes to the ESPN Summer X Games this summer in L.A.
2nd Place – Wild Thing – Featuring Robbie Limacher, Heidi Van Der Meer, Brad Jasicki and Olga Moleva. This team won a trip to a 2011 Colorado Rockies game.
3rd Place – Angry Birds – Featuring Jesse Regan, Katie Oestrike, Tim Mowly and Leslie Regan. Team members took home Helly Hansen gear and Smith Optics goggles.
