This week, the Denver Big Air Competition hits downtown Denver. Tuesday and Wednesday, right before the Winter X Games, top competitors in skiing and snowboarding from around the world hit Denver to show their stuff.
Expect awesome tricks, loads of excitement and a “yard sale” or two from the Big Air Competition. The urban skiing and riding exhibition is expected to draw attention to Denver, and to the Colorado mountains. The ramp is 106 feet tall and will launch the skiers and snowboarders over 60 feet into the Denver skyline. The cost of the ramp was over $600,000.
There is a free spectator zone across from the Main Denver Library and a paid viewing area along the front of Denver’s City and County Building. The VIP entry is at Colfax and Bannock. Prices are high at between $45 and $200, but the buzz generated will certainly help to sell tickets. Discounted tickets are available at Whole Foods stores in the metro-area for $30.
