You know it's gonna be a good one when the snow starts coming in fat and furious. How many times have you been in the middle of a huge fat flake storm and instinctively, like a child, stuck out your tounge to catch a few of the monsters? Yea, I too have been there.
In hope of many fat flake storms to come this winter Ski Utah is stoked to be putting on the Fat Flake Festival coming up on November 3. Yes, this Saturday to be exact.
Aside from a good old fashioned sacrificial bonfire filled with straight skis and towering flames, the Fat Flake Festival is surely the next best thing. Since the festival is being held at the Gallivan Center in downtown Salt Lake City I doubt there will be any bonfires but there will be plenty of action.
To kick off the event at 4:30 don't miss the MONSTER (Energy Drink) RAIL JAM with top altheltes from all over Utah and beyond. From 5-10 there will be ski and snowboard films showing, athlete signings, beer garden and an 80s ski-outfit contest. In fact, everyone is encouraged to don their 80's one piece, stretch pants, steep tech jackets and those flourescent Smith goggles and party all night.
Some of the athletes that will be hanging out signing posters will be Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Jeremy Nobis, Grete Eliassen, Eric Leines, Bjorn Leines, Marc Frank Montoya to name a few.
Don't miss it - rain, shine or SNOW the party is a go.
