Bud Light Spring Jam at Aspen

With over 28 feet of snow falling this winter, Aspen/Snowmass is having a historic season. Closing out this record-breaking season is the extension of the eighth-annual Bud Light Spring Jam into a three-weekend celebration. Bud Light Spring Jam is the Rocky Mountains' premier spring festival featuring concerts, ski and snowboard competitions, parties and more.

New this year is Schnee Tag in Snowmass on Saturday, March 29. Teams of four are invited to create a craft that will slide down Fanny Hill and attempt to soar over a huge pond. And if that doesn't get the adrenaline pumping, the new Helly Hansen Battle in the Bowls will. On Sunday, March 30, teams of two will use Flaik GPS devices to compete in the bowls of Aspen Highlands for $3,000 in prize money.

And finally, the inaugural Snow Angels Invitational, co-hosted by Gretchen Bleiler and Aspen/Snowmass, will bring the best women snowboarders in the world to perform in Snowmass, April 4-6.
