Wrightwood, CA (March 25, 2009) – It’s spring time at Mountain High and that means Spring-A-Ma-Jig is here! Spring-A-Ma-Jig is Mountain High’s annual spring break celebration with a full lineup of contests, activities, and live performances. Every Saturday and Sunday from March 28, 2009 through Easter guests and Spring-A-Ma-Jiggers are invited to participate in events like Pond Skimming, Frozen T-shirt Contest, and Get Ready to Rock…Band. There will also be special events like the Miss Mountain High Bikini Contest presented by X103.9, Snowboard Magazine BBQ, and Easter Egg Hunt.
Daily events begin at 11am with the Big Ollie contest where skiers and snowboarders see who can ollie the highest. At noon the Tug-O-War begins and at 1pm contestants must break a t-shirt out of a block of ice and put it on before their competitors do in the Frozen T-shirt Contest. At 2pm Get Ready to Rock…Band puts wanna-be rockers in the limelight as they play the video game Rock Band on the main stage in front of adoring fans.
To finish the day guests skim across a 50 foot pond of freezing cold water in the ever-popular Pond Skimming at 3pm. All activities are free and open to anyone with a Mountain High lift ticket. Prizes go to standout performers in each Spring-A-Ma-Jig event.
