Competitors propelled themselves down the mountain on homemade sleds, some successfully, some in a crash-and-tumble fashion, on Saturday, April 4, for Red Bull Schlittentag at Keystone. Spectators were treated to chairs on skis, teams in flip-flops and Hawaiian shirts and even a mobile bar shredding down the hill.

When the points were tallied, the judges chose team I Heart Box as the champions, based on creativity, fastest time and distance flown. Casted Away came in second, and Crazy Train rounded out the top three contenders.

Keystone Resort wraps up its ski season on Sunday, April 12. To learn more about events leading up to closing day at Keystone, visit
