April 30, 2004 (Mt. Horeb, WI) - Snow in June? It's even possible in the Midwest. When you thought the snow was replaced by green grass, Tyrol Basin is bringing the white stuff back to life once again. Insulated covers blanket tons of snow from this past season for one last "hurrah" on June 5 and 6.

Tyrol's huge pile of snow will be transformed into a terrain park including a big air jump. The terrain park will cover over 2-acres of what should be, green grass and will be lined with kinked rails, straight rails, and fun boxes. Based on year's past, be prepared for some heated rail sessions on both days along with a snowboard big air competition on Saturday and skier big air competition on Sunday.

The summer snow will be open to the general public the entire time from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Each day will be split into three 3-hour sessions starting at 9 a.m., 1 p.m., and 5 p.m. with a 1-hour break in between each session. The venue will be split into three zones, with two zones containing different rail options and another zone containing a big-air jump. Various sponsors will be hosting slide rail competitions for any age and ability on both days. Prizes will be awarded to rail and big air competitors on both days along with door prizes for snowboarders and skiers just showing up to have fun. Even if you are not riding come on out and enjoy the music, food and to see if it's possible to play on the snow in summer at 800 feet above sea level.

Originally a local event, Tyrol's Snow Fest draws boarders and skiers from as far as Canada and California for some late season snow. "We're dedicated to the 'Fun is an Attitude' thinking and this is one great way to promote it," said Don McKay, general manager.
