Closing Day at Aspen Highlands went out with a splash at Schneetag as teams attempted to float across a giant pond on a craft they had built. Snowmass also wrapped up the season yesterday under sunny skies with great spring skiing and riding conditions. Up next, Aspen Mountain will close for the season on Sunday, April 19.
The 8th annual Aspen Highlands Schneetag event (pronounced Sch-knee Tog) featured teams of four who created a craft that they piloted down a slope near the base area. Every team had a theme and performed a skit before they descended. Each team was judged based on creativity, skit performance, craft construction and success in riding the course.
1st Place – Dukes of Aspen featuring Matthew Shifrin, Charles Lucarelli, Clint Coerdt and Trent Jones
2nd Place Fury On The Snow featuring Jason Hartmann, Matt Hooks, Susan Muenchen and Pete Pelinski
3rd Place Some Call it Cloud 9, We Call It Heaven featuring Ellie Barber, Sarah Gruen, Elli McKinley and Ben Sachdeva
Congratulations to all participants in the 2015 Schneetag.
