KATCHUP – March 2005
Ski / Snowboard
First of all, I would like to thank everyone who attended the 2005 SLUG Games Junk Show competition last month at Brighton Ski Resort. The sold-out event (sorry if you didn’t make it in) was held on Mt. Millicent with new Junk Style obstacles that were created the day of the contest courtesy of RedBull.
March 12-13—Park City Mountain Resort will be hosting the 3rd World Superpipe at the Eagle Superpipe March 12-13. This year’s cash prize will be a staggering $90,000 to be distributed among the ripping snowboard and ski princes and princesses. Some of the best riders in the world will be competing this year; standouts include the podium dismantler Antti Autti who stormed X-Games last month with back-to-back 1080s, last year’s winner Keir Dillon Danny Kass and more. If you watched the X-Games skier halfpipe, you’ll notice Simon Dumont way over head with some of the biggest air in history as well as local Park City All Star Tanner Hall trying to keep the money in Utah. The World Superpipe Snowboard Championships will go down Saturday, March 12. The Men’s Skier Contest will follow on Sunday, March 13. The event is free to the public and will feature live music, demo and sponsor village and beer garden. Telecasts of the World Superpipe Contest will air on NBC and its affiliate stations.

March 19—Park City Mountain Resort will be hosting The SLUG Games, which will make its first appearance with the Cammy Potter Memorial Slopestyle contest. Cammy Potter was a snowboard instructor at PCMR and local resident. This will be a slopestyle format held in the Pick-N-Shovel Park located next to the Eagle Superpipe. A portion of event proceeds will be donated to the Cammy Potter Fund which will be helping future athletes on the Park City Snowboard Team attend summer camps to improve their riding. Register the day of the contest between 8-9 a.m. Call 801-487-9221 for more information.

March 25—Canyons Spring Concert Series: The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. The only reason I’m offering this information is Modest Mouse collaborated with them on their latest CD, Good News For People Who Love Bad News, and they are from the south. Concert 3-5 p.m. at The Canyons Resort Village. Free concerts in the resort village. Enjoy a day of sun and fun skiing and riding The Canyons, and then kick back in the Village to live music.
