SnowGlobe 2018 Big Air Highlights Regional Professional + Amateur Skiers + Riders

The 8th Annual SnowGlobe Big Air, Lake Tahoe's largest man-made feature, highlights over two dozen pro and amateur skiers and snowboarders from across the region. Athletes will drop out of the DARKNESS on a scaffolding tower, coming down and hitting a jump launching over 30 feet above the crowd. As they throw down 540's, 720's, corks and a variation of flips, spins and grabs they fly more than 40 feet in distance with the creative SnowGlobe lighting pointed right at the athletes, resulting in the most unique visuals you've ever seen at a music festival. This year's sports exhibitions will also include a rail jam feature to showcase the full spectrum of talent these athletes have to offer.
