Summer's On The Way!

SCHNEETAG! Snowmass, Colorado, April 14, 2013 Schneetag is the German word for "snow day." Put simply, it translates as "daredevils willing to propel themselves down a hill, over a jump and across a pond on a craft they built themselves." Entry is FREE! Contact Aspen-Snowmass 970.923-1227 to enter your team! *FREE foot passes for the Burlingame Lift will be available from 11am-3pm so everyone can check out the action This hilarious event is one not to miss. The 6th annual Schneetag event (pronounced Sch-knee Tog) invites teams of four to create a craft that they will pilot down a slope at “Spider Sabich” and attempt to float across a 30x20 foot pond.
