Big Air Fridays blast off

SNOWMASS ” Bud Light Big Air Fridays kick off this week at Fanny Hill at Snowmass and runs every week through April 6.

Local snowboarders and skiers can compete for a weekly prize purse of $1,050 while giving spectators a show during apres-ski. Practice is between 1 and 2 p.m., before the official competition from 2-3 p.m.

There will also be giveaways through­out the event, as well as live music on the Snowmass mall from 3-4:30 p.m., then a fireworks display.

The competition is a 40-minute jam session beginning at 2 p.m. Judges choose four skiers and four snow­boarders to continue on to the finals. Finalists will have one jump and then be placed according to best trick.

Registration takes place from 12:30-1:30 p.m. on the day of the event at the base of the jump on Fanny Hill. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and limited to 20 skiers and 20 snowboarders.

The entry fee is $20 per event (cash or check only). The competition is open to pros or amateurs of all ages. Competitors younger than 18 must have a parent or legal guardian present at registration to sign a waiver, and helmets are required. To qualify, competitors must either have competed in a Big Air event last season or must successfully land the big air jump with a member of the Snowmass ski patrol as witness on the day of the event.
