Monster Weekend, sponsored by Sun Valley Company, Scott, and Monster Energy, is in full swing this Saturday afternoon under the bright Sun Valley sun. European Winter X-Game winner Tom Wallisch kicked off the action on Friday afternoon, flying 140 feet off the brand spanking-new Monster Feature on Dollar Mountain. The feature, shaped like the recognizable, neon green, Monster Energy “M” was built by the SPT and Dollar Mountain park crew and is bigger closer up than you can imagine.
Tonight, Scott and Monster Energy athletes Tom Wallisch, Justin Dorey and Ian Cosco will take part in a jump session and photoshoot with professional photographer Erik Seo and Freeskier Magazine editor, Shay Williams. Floodlights have been brought in to light up the night from 7-9pm. There will also be a DJ, BBQ, and beers for anybody that wants to stop by and see all the monster action. Then don’t miss the after-party, sponsored by Freeskier Mag, at Whiskey Jacques’ in Ketchum.
For more information, check out Shay William’s blog and video diary of the trip from Freeskier Mag’s website here: Monster Weekend Update One.
Drawing heavily from the sunny So-Cal sound of acts like Jack Johnson and G-Love, and the roots, rock sound of Tom Petty, Ben Harper and others, the Matt Lewis Band has a full, relaxed sound. Their self-titled 2004 debut is marked by the easy grooves and rhymes of tracks like "Killing Time" and "Gravity," the punk-pop crossover of "Away From Myself," and the dorm room sound of "In For a Ride" and "River."
The Matt Lewis Band will play apres ski from 2-5pm at Warm Springs March 14-18 and apres ski at River Run March 19 & 20. You can also see them live in the Boiler Room on Friday & Saturday night, March 19 & 20. Doors open at 9pm after the comedy series. First 10 people at the door get in free. Comedy patrons stay for free. $10 cover charge.
