DOVER- What do you do when the calendar says spring, but the conditions say winter? Throw a weekend-long party and invite everyone to celebrate the great ski season. That’s exactly what Mount Snow is doing this weekend with the annual Bud Light Reggaefest. With live music Friday through Sunday, activities, and events each day there’s really something for everyone this weekend at Mount Snow.

This is one of the best Reggaefest lineups seen at Mount Snow and it all kicks off Friday, March 23, at 9 pm, with Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad with special quests Rebel Alliance at Snow Barn. Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad with Rebel Alliance was formed in 2001 in Rochester, NY. They first received praise for their live show, which combined world beats and reggae rhythms within jam-band aesthetics. People must be 21 plus to stay for the concert. Doors open at 8 pm, show starts around 9 pm. Tickets will be $20 online in advance, and $25 at the door, if still available. Online ticket sales will end at 11:59 pm on March 22.

Then on Saturday, the music flows out onto the Cuzzins stage starting at 12 pm with The Alchemystics followed by Roots of Creation at 1:30 pm, and all capped off by The Original Wailers who take the stage at 3:30 pm.

That’s just the warm-up. The party continues over at the Snow Barn with Passafire with special guests Psychotic Submarines. Purchase tickets in advance, as this show will sell out. People must be 21 plus to stay for the concert. The doors open at 8 pm with the show starting around 9 pm. Tickets will be $20 online in advance, and $25 at the door, if still available.

Competitors can try their luck at skimming across the custom-built 100-foot-long pond with the annual Bud Light Sink or Skim pond skimming contest on Saturday, March 24, at 12 pm. Think you can make it across the 100-foot-long icy cold pond? Don your best costume and give it a shot. Those who make it across dry will be judged by the esteemed judging panel based on costume, form, and style to determine this year’s sink or skim champion and the winner of a 2018/19 Season Pass to Mount Snow. To register come to the Main Base Lodge by Tony’s Pizza at 11 am on Saturday. The event is limited to the first 100 participants, and those under 18 who wish to try their luck must have a parent or guardian present at registration. Miss the cut off, join the spectators at the Main Base Area at 12 pm for thrills, spills, and chills (this ain’t no hot tub) as we cheer on the competitors.

Don’t miss Mount Snow’s signature event with the Duct Tape Derby on Sunday, March 25. The derby has grown into one of the funniest and most unique competitions people have ever witnessed or been involved in. Build a craft of only cardboard, duct tape, zip ties, and paint. That’s it!

Awards will be given for the best slider, the most creative, the best kids only sled, and judges choice. Judging will begin at 11 am at the top of the tubing hill with the competition beginning at 12 pm. Sign up by filling out the form by 11:59 pm on Thursday, March 22. This event is free. All team members will need to sign a waiver the day of the event, and children under 18 will need a parent present to sign. Then, at 12 pm, spectators will see how the designs hold up, as participants rocket down the tubing hill in the hope of making it to the bottom intact.

As the sleds start sliding, the music cranks up for another day of spring celebration with concerts from The Big Takeover and Sabouyouma from 12 until 4 pm.
