College SnowJam returns to Montage Mountain

Michelle Lehman, Guest Contributor

College SnowJam is the largest snow sports and music festival in NEPA.

Two students from Marywood University started this event in 2015 in the hopes of getting University students and the community together for an exciting day in the middle of winter. Frank Winger and Tim Kane are now returning to Montage Mountain for their 3rd Annual College SnowJam on Sat., Feb. 11.

“There’s Music in the snow and skiers and Snowboarders flipping through the air competing for thousands in prizes. It really is a great time for everyone to get together and celebrate in the middle of winter,” said Winger.

The 3rd Annual College SnowJam hosted at Montage Mountain will have live entertainment scheduled from noon to 7 p.m. Lift tickets and event admission will be $20. Rentals will be $15.

College SnowJam provides a day of the most affordable lift tickets and rentals for skiing and snowboarding in the region.

A day on the snow will be accompanied by a lineup of live, local bands and artists: Black Tie Stereo, Newpy Hundo, Cedar Green, Dreamers, Like Us, Send Request, and, DJ D’Law.

There will also be an Urban Rail Jam Competition, food and drink specials, fire pits, games, and other recreational activities.

“No one in NEPA has ever attempted to shove this much value into a single winter day,” Winger said.
