“It’s a nonprofit ski hill with a long, wide, medium-grade park, a crazy fast rope tow, lots of trees to cut the wind, and a constant whisp of woodsmoke. It absolutely made our day. ” -Karl

What is it? A bunch of people just having fun. Check out the recap from the 2018-2019 Season. Take a look here!

Colab will have a 10 person team building over 2 days. Ski Gull has a quiver of rails and Austin and Kael are leading in the design. Expect tons of transitions and photo-friendly hits.

The plan:

The most important thing you need to know about this event is that it’s a party. Some of the best riders, personalities, and park crews come together to say goodbye to winter. We also take this chance to wish everyone the best with the off season and show off some of those new tricks.
