Fat Flake Festival

by Happy Painter October 28 2008 0 Comments

fff08 (fff08)Ski Utah's 2008 Fat Flake Festival will take place Sat., Nov. 15 from 5-9 p.m. at the Gallivan Center in downtown Salt Lake City. This year's festival will feature music by The Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash, Cavedoll and Junior Giant. Local ski and snowboard athletes including Julian Carr, Jamie Pierre, Rachael Burks, Jenn Berg, Stevie Bell and Ashley Battersby will also be on hand to sign autographs in the Powder Lounge.

New to the event this year, is the first ever Ski Boot Race. Contestants wearing alpine ski boots will tackle a challenging dash around the perimeter of the Gallivan Center in the quest for a new pair of Rossignol alpine ski boots, and the title of Utah's "Fastest Ski Boot Racer" in both a men's and women's division. Pre-registration for the race will open on Nov. 1. More information can be found by visiting the website.

Participants can also take part in the vintage ski outfit contest and win new clothes from Eider, skis from Rossignol or a Burton snowboard. Lift tickets and other swag from Utah ski resorts will also be given away. The event will also offer ice skating, a kids zone, food, beer and much more. The Fat Flake Festival is free and open to the public. Last year's festival was successful in conjuring an amazing 700 inches of snow for the 2007-08 winter season. Join Ski Utah as they call out to the snow gods and welcome winter back to the Wasatch!

The Fat Flake Festival is powered by Ski Utah, Ride Utah, KSL Radio, X-96, PowerAde, Monster Beverage Co., Salt Lake CVB, Stantec, Powder Magazine, Snowboarder Magazine, Media One, City Weekly, Pictureline, and Young Chevrolet.
