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 3 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! Top Prize is a $50 Brundage Mountain gift card.
