Powder Mountain will host the 2nd Annual Grom Fest for youth aged 12 and younger on January 10, 2009.  Young up and coming skiers and boarders, nicknamed Groms, can really show off their skills on courses specially set up for their age group. 

 Events include mini-downhill races and a mini-slopestyle competition.  A separate age class will be set up for competitors 6 years old and younger.  Registration is free with a valid lift pass. 

 Lift passes for children 6 and younger are free anytime with a paying adult.  A daytime lift pass for the Sundown Lift is $20 for those 7 – 12 years of age.  Registration will begin at the Sundown Lodge at 10:00 AM. 

  “This is more of an opportunity for the whole family to come and have a good time on the snow.  Of course, all of the attention will be centered on the kids” said Dave Jessup, Terrain Parks Manager and Events Coordinator.   

 Grom Fest is just one of the programs offered at Powder Mountain to encourage youth to try out winter sports.  Powder Mountain offers affordable lessons for youth starting as young as 3 ½ years old.
