Icelantic’s Winter On The Rocks

ghostlandannouncesICELANTIC has corralled two of today’s hottest musical acts for the 3rd Annual Winter On The Rocks Concert at Red Rocks Amphitheater. Ghostland Observatory and Jurassic 5 will take the stage Friday January 31, beneath Denver’s starry winter night sky, amongst the storied red walls of the concert venue. This news comes on the heels of GLO’s announcement of a self-imposed hiatus that suggested the group might be flirting with a break up. On November 22, GLO announced their creative halt via the band’s Facebook page. GLO Heads everywhere went into a tailspin, glitter became less sparkly, the incandescence of glow-sticks dimmed like Tinker Bells’ light. Super fan Dance Fever Keever, shocked and dismayed, retired her famed moves “The Chicken Leg,” “The Wobble,” and her version of Lisa Turtle’s “The Sprain.” When reached for comment The DFK could only muster “Dang y’alls! I can’t even talk about this dang ole thang. I be like so dang-on heartbroken. Plus, I smashed my fanger in the dang-on door!” The dancing queen was inconsolable.

Then last week concert promoter Telluride Ski Resort and ICELANTIC announced Ghostland Observatory would be joining Jurassic 5 for the winter celebration. And just like that, the face paint was broken out, hair crimping flat irons were unpacked, and shimmery golden stretch pants once again had purpose. It seems fitting the electro dance funk GLO has teamed up with Jurassic 5. The Hip Hop group has seen its own episodes of on-again, off-again dramatics.

In addition to the excitement of the J5 and GLO pairing, ICELANTIC has created a contest leading up to the event. The winner of Road To The Rocks will receive a VIP package to the show, roundtrip flights, a 4-night stay in a hotel, lift tickets, 2 pairs of ICELANTIC Skis, and a Jeep to cruise in for the weekend. This is quite possibly the greatest contest ever created for what stands to be the greatest concert of all time.

Start stretching, kiddos. Spit shine your sparkly, sparkly dance princess outfits and get ready to “dance off your pants off.” It is time to turn into Dance-a-jaweyah, PocaHotness, and GeroniWhoa. Perhaps, if we booty clap loud enough, Ullr will hear and reward us all with a storm of the deep fluffy stuff.

Demo Days at Wild Mountain

logo_originalSaturday, November 23, 2013— I was met with clear, sunny skies and frigid temperatures upon awakening. Yet, my heart was warm and swirling with anticipation. Demo Days at Wild Mountain had finally come. Coffee in travel mug, breakfast pastry in hand; I threw my pack of gear and my boots into the car and sped off to click into the skis I had been longing to shred.

Wild Mountain Ski Resort is about 45 minutes northeast of the Twin Cities. Snowmaking was in full effect as we pulled into the parking lot. Fan guns pumped huge  plumes and HKDs sprinkled the frosty white from the nose of their towers; Wild Mountain was wisely taking advantage of the single digit temperatures. Vendor tents were up and 2014 skis and snowboards were displayed like cakes in a bakery window. A quick change and boot up; it was time to ride.
