12th Annual Snow Beach Festival

12th Annual Snow Beach Festival

Pond skimming, flamingos, tiki torches, ice sculptures, contests and some serious prizes will highlight the most entertaining event of the year on Mt. Hood.

The highlight of the day is the legendary 12th annual Pond Skimming Contest where contestants attempt to skim across a freezing cold pond of mountain water in hilarious costumes. Clearing the icy water is not a requirement to win, and dramatic landings help score big points. The event will incorporate a Live DJ, reporters that get the crowd into the action and of course the judges’ panel.

Prizes will be awarded for Best Costume, Best Style/Trick, Best Attitude/Effort and Best Overall Crash/Splash.  The winnings are big with a beach vacation, golf vacation, wakeboards, GoPro cameras, skis, bikes and tons of other prizes, giveaways and swag!

Other events and attractions during the day will include the Suds on the Slopes with beer and wine tastings from some of the best breweries in the northwest, including Bridgeport, Alaskan Brewing Co, Full Sail, New Belgium, Deschutes Brewery and Pabst Blue Ribbon. The Fire on the Mountain Wing Eating Contest and the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest will push participants to the edge in hopes of winning gear and cash prizes.

Many freestyle skiers and riders will throw down in the 4th annual Goggle Tan Rail Jam.  An expanded terrain park with new features and obstacles will challenge all riders in hopes of winning big prizes.

The Snow Beach Festival has all the ingredients for an exciting, family-friendly Spring Break mountain event. To participate in the Pond Skimming Contest, Goggle Tan Rail Jam, Fire on the Mountain Wing Eating Contest, or the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, sign up in guest services 30 minutes prior to each event or contact cara@go.skibowl.com.
