Winterfest Flagstaff Highlight – Dew Downtown Urban Ski & Snowboard Festival

snowboarderThe Dew Downtown Flagstaff Urban Ski & Snowboard Festival returns February 9-10 for ski and snowboard demonstration and competition on the streets of Historic Downtown.

New for the 2013 event is an after-dark night ski session, a local restaurant booth with samples from downtown kitchens and a multi-stage music festival in Heritage Square.

San Francisco Street will once again be transformed into the ultimate winter sport playground where daredevils of all ages can grind, jump and shred over trashcans, guardrails and other urban obstacles.

“Dew Downtown Flagstaff puts an unusual spin on this type of event, taking it out of the big ski resort setting and into the streets of Flagstaff,” said Mark Lamberson, owner of Mountain Sports and international ski and snowboard contest director.

This family-friendly event is a highlight of Flagstaff’s month-long Winterfest Flagstaff celebration. On Saturday, February 9, the festivities take over Heritage Square with two stages for live music and performing arts and a tent with winter crafts and activities for kids that will turn into a beer and wine garden for adults after dark.

The entire weekend of events is free for spectators. Anyone can test this year’s course on Saturday, February 9 with a $10-20 fee. The actual judged competition will take place on Sunday, February 10 and also costs $10-20 to participate. Registration is now open and can be completed online or in person at the Aquaplex.
