This zany challenge features costumed competitors and lots of laughs—it’s a spectacle you won’t want to miss! Skiers and snowboarders age 16 and older will race down the hill and surf over a shallow pond at the bottom. There will be prizes for the most original method, best dismount and best in show. After the action, the party continues with a performance by the Maybabies at 5 p.m. On Sunday, head back to the mountain for another full day of fun! Parking spots re-open at 7 a.m. and a DJ starts spinning tunes at noon. Camelback’s Cardboard Box Derby takes place on the Sunbowl Slope at 1 p.m. Catch a glimpse of the action as teams hit the hill in creatively constructed cardboard chariots! With materials restricted to cardboard, tape, paint, paper and glue, the competition will surely showcase silly sleds and dramatic wipeouts!
