The First Last Annual Frank World Classic Ski Competition

By , May 6, 2016 12:19 PM

This year’s Frank may or may not have been the last.  Let’s hope not because once again the festivities reminded us just how much fun the party known simply as Frank can be.  Locals worked extra hard this past week to build a stage for the announcing crew and others took on the even larger project of building a series of jumps.  A tunnel was constructed with at least 6 huge kickers surrounding it.  A less-than-Bud-mogul-tour quality bump line was also in place down the gut of Punch Bowl.

Skiers were as usual throwing huge tricks and taking crazy speed in to the kickers.  And the party of onlookers was larger than any of the previous years.  First place went to local Andrew Pollard, for no particular reason and that’s how we like it.  Cheers to everyone who participated and those who just showed up to drink.

Frank 2014 Is Almost Here!

We’re one day closer to Frank this morning and I can hardly wait.  If you missed the past couple of years be sure to check out Lightpole.com’s recent edit of last year’s festivities.  A precursor to the annual High Boy party, Frank’s starts earlier in the day with a 70’s style ski competition where old school is the new school.   Founded by Alta legend, Mike Trioli, Frank is a true testament to what sparked the beginning of freestyle skiing.

Starting around noon-ish on April 20th skiers will showcase their innermost Frank and attempt to impress the judges for their chance to be crowned #1 Frank.  Held on Alta’s Punch Bowl run off of the Wild Cat lift, party-goers will congregate on Punk Rock to spectate the competition.  The event usually lasts until 3 pm giving skiers a chance to catch the High Boy party as well.  Come one, come all.  Don’t miss it!
