Slushpool Party and Wet Tug-O-War

Saturday, April 8, 2017

It's been a long winter, so help us celebrate spring in style with the Slushpool Party and Wet Tug-O-War.

Slushpool Party
A spring tradition here at Loon, the Slushpool Party is a magical event in which skiers and riders try (and most often fail) to skim across a pond of ice-cold water.  SPY Optic will be handing out prizes for Best Tidal Wave and Wildest Costume!

Wet Tug-O-War 
Grab ahold and pull hard - really really hard, or you'll end up in the deep end. It's a back & forth battle where randomly-formed teams of 8 try to pull their competitors into the icy cold Slushpool. Winning teams move on to the finals where they'll tug for the title. Champions will walk home with new gear from SPY Optic and dry clothes - hopefully.

Spectators
If you're not crazy enough to enter the either event, you'll love watching it. Since the pool is conveniently located at the base of Seven Brothers trail mere feet from the Octagon Lodge, you'll have a ringside seat to all the mayhem.
