The $25,000 Cholula Triple Air returns to Mountain High this Saturday, Feb. 20.  The Triple Air is
the resort’s largest one-day
snowboarding competition and
participants come from as far away as Utah and
Colorado to
battle for the enormous prize purse. 

Cholula Hot Sauce, Monster Energy, Powder And Sun Ride Shop, and Jarritos Soda have pooled $25,000 in cash
and prizes, and the top rider takes home $10,000.

The
Cholula Triple Air Show is a modified big
air contest.  Not one but three enormous jumps stand between the rider and the
podium, and competitors are judged
on their amplitude, execution, and technical difficulty.

First held in
snowboarding‘s method-grabbing
heyday of 1998, the Triple Air has been bringing top-name riders to the region
for 12 years and past participants include Shaun White, Chaz Guldemond, Kevin Pearce, and Keegan
Valaika.

 “The Triple Air is where we shine. 
It’s our largest event of the
season and this year it will be at the East Resort so it is easily accessible
to all spectators,”
said John
McColly
, Director of Marketing,

 Registration takes place from 7 am to 9 am in the Angeles Crest Caf (East Resort), and the event begins promptly at 10 m.  Entry fees are $150 for Open
Mens Snowboarding, $125 for Open
Women’s Snowboarding, and $125
for the Open Skiing division. 

Cash
prizes are paid out to 16th place in the men’s division, 6th
place in the women’s, 6th place in skiers, and there is a
special $1,000 cash prize for best trick. 

All competitors receive a free breakfast, souvenir bib, and lunch compliments of Wahoo’s
Fish Tacos.  Immediately after the event, a huge party rocks the Snowshoe Saloon with DJs,
raffles, and guest hosts, the
Monster Energy Girls.
