A bag of paper numbers that corresponds to the clue number can be found at each location. Be one of the first five treasure hunters to collect all ten numbers to win a Brundage goodie bag! Bring numbers back to the event tent to collect your prize.
Pick up your poker run game sheet at the event tent. Find a Brundage Mountain Ambassador (look for the green coat) at the top of each lift and draw a card. Your friendly ambassador will fill in the card info on your game sheet. Bring sheet back to the guest services office by 12:00 pm. Winner will be announced between Round 1 and Round 2 of pond skimming.

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.
Celebrity judges will choose the top 3 female, top 3 male, and top 3 kids costumes; the crowd makes the final decision!
Contestants must be ready at the start when their name is called. The top skimmers from each round will move on. Skimmers will be judged on speed, grace, style and costume, so 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 winner of the Grand Prize receives a 2017/2018 Brundage Season Pass.
