Beer Relay – sponsored by Payette Brewing

Pre-registered teams of four meet at the top of Alpine; our Brundage Mountain Ambassadors will direct 3 team members to stops down the run. The team member remaining at the top of Alpine will receive a can of beer (or soda) and an empty cup. Teammate #1 will fill their cup and head off down the run to meet teammate #2. The full cup will exchange hands and teammate #2 will continue down the run to give the full cup to teammate #3 who will continue down to teammate #4. Teammate #4 is responsible for getting the full cup to the finish line and setting it on the table. The winning team needs to finish in the top 6 teams and have the most beer (or soda) in their cup at the end of the run. Be forewarned- any team to add snow, etc. to the cup will be disqualified! Each member of the winning team will receive a $25 Brundage Gift Card.

Costume Contest

Celebrity judges will choose the top 3 female, top 3 male, and top 3 kids costumes; the crowd makes the final decision!


Pond Skimming

Contestants must be ready at the start when their name is called. The top skimmers from each round will move on. All skimmers to cross the pond successfully move on to the next round. Bring your “A” game if you want to make it to the next round. Participants must hike back up the hill and be ready for their next attempt.  The grand prize winner must check every box; make it across the pond in all three rounds, do it with style, and be donning a creative costume.
