On Saturday, April 4, Keystone Resort will host the Red Bull Schlittentag, an event in which daredevils propel themselves down a snow-covered hill and over a jump on homemade sleds, vying for the title of Schlittentag champion.

Schlittentag is the German word for “sledding day,” and teams of three — one pilot and two pushers — are invited to register their “sleds” for the event online through the Red Bull website, http://www.redbull.com. Beginning at 2 p.m. at the Mountain House Base Area, the teams will launch their sleds downhill to the finish and will be judged on creativity, fastest time and distance flown.

Red Bull calls the event “the most winter fun you’ve had sitting down,” and from the looks on the faces of past participants, it’s likely true. To learn more about events leading up to Closing Day at Keystone, visit http://www.keystoneresort.com.
