The festival kicks off March 14 with a Johnny Cash cover band, Cash’d Out, headlining the ski party at the base of Aspen Mountain. The pre-band is One Ton Pig. More fun throughout the weekend includes the KickAspen Big Air under the lights of Aspen Mountain. Snowmass has a Terrain Park Boot Camp where kids and adults can learn how to slide a rail or hit a box in the mini-park at Snowmass.
The second weekend offers a snowboard event in Sandy Park at Snowmass. The Core Party is in downtown Aspen Friday, March 21, with a trio of live electronic and experimental world fusion musicians. The fun on the mountain is at Aspen Highlands with the Battle in the Bowls.
