Taking place Snowmass Closing Day, the 10th annual Schneetag (pronounced Sch-knee Tog) invites teams of four to create a craft they will pilot down a slope and attempt to float across a pond. Schneetag is the German word for "snow day." Put simply, it translates to "daredevils willing to propel themselves down a hill, over a jump and across a pond on a craft they built themselves." Each team will present a theme and perform a skit before they descend. Entry is free, but pre-registration online is required. Individual skiers and snowboarders are also invited to pond skim between the teams with the possibility of taking home prizes if the judges find the attempt entertaining.
