West Coast Invitational is back in Mammoth for the 11th year! This time the
biggest Spring contest in the world mixes it up with a rare late
season big air contest under the lights at Canyon Lodge.

The
first-of-its-kind format will team up a skier and snowboarder
together to work their way through the big air bracket as they
chase a piece of the $10,000 purse!

Not only can you watch the best skiers and snowboarders, but you
can be a part of the action in the Hike Park!

Adjacent to the main
stage of the big air jump will be a variety of rail features for
all abilities. Check out the Hike Park for free, get your picture
taken by a professional photographer and show it off to your
friends to prove you rode in the WCI!

After the contest, all you have to do for a nightcap is stroll
into Canyon Lodge, where the annual WCI concert will have you
partying to the sounds of Rye Rye, and wishing the snow season
would never end!
Tickets to the show are available online
, through 800.MAMMOTH
