Daily Activities

12:00pm Tug O War – A new spin on an old favorite.  This Tug of War takes place in the snow and the loosing team might end up in the pond.
2:00pm  Frozen T-Shirt Contest – 10 t-shirts have been frozen in the icy tundra of Mountain High’s North Resort and the competitors must break them apart and put them on.  First one to dawn their frozen shirt wins a goody bag filled with Mountain High swag.                    
3:00pm  Pond Skimming – The quintessential event at any spring break.  Skiers and snowboarders must cross a 50 foot pond filled with freezing cold water or suffer the consequences.
