Commemorating LVSSR’s golden anniversary and the destination’s only after dark event, this 50th anniversary celebration is expected to have the biggest turnout of the season. Both male and female athletes will vie for the winning title in separate categories in the ski and snowboard competitions, and judging will be based on landing, difficulty and style.
