A lift ticket is required for participation. A panel of experts will judge competitors on skill, style and height. Prizes will be awarded and a raffle with cool stuff from Boeri, DC, Eastern Boarder and Gnu will follow at the conclusion of the event.
Registration for the Little Slammer Slopestyle will take place from 8 to 9:30 a.m. on the second floor of the base lodge. Boarders will then have a chance to demonstrate their jibbing abilities beginning at noon.
