Lake Tahoe, CA – Alpine Meadows Resort has sounded the competition alarm by announcing the Take the Lake competition, taking place Friday, March 18 through Sunday, March 20.

Competitors can expect a sizable triple jumpline and a $15,000 purse. *Note this cash purse has been upped from the $12,000 purse mentioned in the video below.

Contest venue crafted by jump-building legend
Park designer Jonahs David is known for pushing together huge jumps and this contest will bring out his best work. “Big jumps and jumplines are definitely my specialty,” said David. “There’s a lot of fun in building the perfect air, and there’s definitely a select group of athletes who know how to ride really well in a big air jumpline. Competitors will definitely be stoked by what I have planned,” he added.

Registration fee is $100 and includes the Friday, March 18 practice day; the Saturday qualifying rounds; and for those who qualify, the Sunday finals. Competitors can register at SkiAlpine.com.
