Saturday, Feb. 28, marked the second and final contest of the 15th annual SLUG Games ski/snowboard series, SLUG Games: Slash Bash Presented By Ken Garff Fiat. Housed once again at the base of Millicent at Brighton Resort, over 100 competitors turned up for their chance at local fame and a sack full of goodies. Numerous rail options provided the kids with ample features to showcase their skills and creativity. Mother Nature finally showed up as well to provide just enough dust to cover the crust. Thank you to all the sponsors including Core Power, Freeheel Life Industries, iNi Cooperative, Izm Apparel, Ken Garff Fiat, Milo Sport, Niche Snowboards, Outlaw Union, Pit Viper, Porcupine Pub, Publik Coffee, RAMP Sports, Saga Outerwear, Salty Peaks, Warp Wrapz Goggles and Toogumshoe for all of the product and support. We’d especially like to thank all of the competitors for putting it all on the line.
