About 40 costumed contestants participated in the Slush Cup at Alyeska Resort on Saturday afternoon, April 11, 2015. Skiers and snowboarders took an alpine run, hit a ramp and tried to skim across a pond at the base of the hill for the chance to win a season pass for 2015-16. It's one of the most popular events of Alyeska's Spring Carnival and draws a large crowd of spectators hoping to see some impressive tricks and spectacular wipeouts. Colin Gordon took first place in the event, followed by Desi Sherwood and Joey Aist. Jack Stahla won the prize for best crash. This was the 38th annual Slush Cup. Spring Carnival continues Sunday with events including a downhill mountain bike race and an Xtratuf tug-o-war.
