The 2nd annual Hella Big Air will feature a custom-built 90 foot jump with $30,000 in cash prizes. 10 Barrel will take over the mountain at 10:30am and going all day with live DJ sets, BBQ and beers including a free concert by rap and funk talent Lyrics Born.
Ski and snowboard competitors will battle it out all day long, showing off their style and skills on the 90-foot custom jump in hopes of winning a cut of the $30,000 cash prize purse. The bar has been set high by last year’s finalists, Ryan Linnert (snowboard), JD Dennis (snowboard) and winners, Nils Mindnich (snowboard) and Alex Schlopy (ski), all of whom have been invited to return and defend their title at this year’s event.
