Best Worst Ski Film Festival12/16/09
BIG SKY, Mont. — Think day-glow jackets and tight pants, picture head bands and fluorescent hats and superimpose these over fierce competition on a Saturday with spectators going wild. Now add snow, a jump and some space in the base area, a DJ, and regular folks performing ski and snowboard ballet and retro air tricks. This is the setting for the Best/Worst Ski Movie Festival at Big Sky Resort.
Saturday, December 19th, the base area will be transformed into the ultimate ski and snowboard celebration festival, complete with costumes and movies and music. Competitors, that is anyone that wants to participate, can join in the Ballet or Small Air Comps for exciting prizes and fun.
Beginning at 1p.m., join the crowds and competitors in the ski and snowboard ballet competition. Following the majesty of ballet, hang around at 2 p.m. for the small air competition. Old school grabs and tricks only.
After the on-snow competitions, head into the bars for some drink specials and old school movies on the screens. Beginning at 5 p.m. move to the Whiskey Jack for a T.J. Burke (from “Aspen Extreme”) look-a-like competition and for the ladies, a snowbunny competition.
Following the competitions music will play and “Aspen Extreme” and Hot Dog : The Movie” will round out the night’s fun. Big Sky will be hosting a special guest during the weekend, Greg Stump, famous for his movies that defined the early 90’s ski scene will be in attendance.
