Powder and Sun Throw Down, Chow Down

Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort will host its inaugural “Powder and Sun Throw Down, Chow Down” contest, which is open to male and female riders of all ages. The event challenges participants to perform tricks on a series of features, including rails and jibs, in the LVSSR’s Darkside Park. Competitors will have the chance to win thousands of dollars in prizes, and registered riders will receive a hot dog or hamburger lunch they can “chow down” the day of the event. The entry fee is $25 plus the cost of a lift ticket; season pass holders only have to pay the entry fee. Contestants will be divided by gender into two age categories: 15 and under and 16 and over, and will have a 45-minute jam session to throw down their best tricks, which will be judged on landing, difficulty and style. The top three riders in each category will be awarded special prizes. All registered competitors will be eligible to win prizes including snowboards, hats, shirts and gloves from Powder and Sun in a raffle.
