They will be Olympic-caliber athletes performing dynamic aerial feats in downtown Denver next weekend.
No, the NBA lockout hasn’t ended and the Nuggets aren’t expected to fill the Pepsi Center anytime soon. But a few blocks away, the Denver Convention Center will once again host the Annual Colorado Ski and Snowboard Expo and the Flying Aces will take flight.
It’s a trampoline program produced, directed and choreographed by three-time Olympian Fuzz Feddersen, who competed in three Olympics and coached the 1998 U.S. Winter Olympic Aerial Ski team to two gold medals. They’ll be displaying amazing tricks and this year will include the addition of the RipStoke mountain bike team pulling off additional techniques.
That’s one of the many events taking place at the Expo, a three-day extravaganza that is the state’s single largest ski and snowboard sale with clothing and accessories and equipment prices slashed 40 to 75 percent off. There will be over 20,000 square feet of inventory and all 26 Colorado resorts will be on-hand with ‘show-only’ specials on season passes, lift tickets and lessons.
Did we forget to mention that this year will be the first Rocky Mountain Brew Fest, a separate cost for three hours to sample from more than 10 breweries like Breckenridge Brewery and Oskar Blues. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door if there is still space.
Entrance into the Expo is just $12 per person and children under 12 are free. Admission means a one-year subscription to Ski or Transworld Snowboarding Magazine and a $10 Liftopia gift card. For more information call the Convention Center at (303) 228-8000.
