Spring-A-Ma-Jig, Mountain High‘s annual spring break celebration, returns to its West Resort Saturday, March 31st and Sunday, April 1st. Classic events like pond skimming and the Miss Mountain High bikini pageant, plus new events like the Easter Egg Hunt, make this weekend’s agenda entertaining for the whole family. There will be activities for both kids & adults, and all events are free with paid admission.
Daily events include tug of war, the Big Ollie, pond skimming and the frozen t-shirt contest. Each day features a signature competition where participants can win prizes. Other Spring-A-Ma-Jig activities include live music, DJ’s, vendors, giveaways and a lot of spring break fun in the sun.
“Spring-A-Ma-Jig is my favorite event of the year,” said John McColly, Mountain High chief marketing officer. “This year is going to be better than ever.”
11:00 a.m. – Big Ollie – Snowboarders must “ollie” as high as they can in this heart pumping competition. The bar goes up after each round until only one rider remains.
12:00 p.m. – Tug of War – A new spin on an old favorite, this tug of war takes place in the snow and the losing team might end up in the pond.
1:00 p.m. – Frozen T-Shirt Contest – 10 t-shirts have been frozen in the icy tundra of Mountain High’s North Resort and the competitors must break them apart and put them on. The first contestant to put on their frozen shirt wins a goody bag filled with Mountain High swag.
3:00 p.m. – Pond Skimming – This is the quintessential event of any spring break. Skiers and snowboarders must cross a 50-foot pond filled with freezing cold water or suffer the consequences.
