The SLUG Games 2019 Winter Wizardry

For the past 19 years, the SLUG Games has provided a one-of-a-kind competition experience to the state of Utah. This year, SLUG Magazine is throwing it back to one of our favorite themes from over the years: Winter Wizardry.

SLUG Magazine is committed to ensuring access to a well-organized contest to all members of the snow community. In order to make this happen, SLUG Mag will not be charging registration fees, so their contest is just like their magazine—always free. In addition to no registration fees, the SLUG Games will host Men’s and Women’s Open Ski and Snowboard divisions, as well as the same categories for 17 & Under divisions.

“For the past 19 years, we’ve teamed up with our favorite Utah resort to provide a quality contest for amateur ski and snowboarders,” says Angela H. Brown, Executive Editor of SLUG Magazine and founder of the SLUG Games.”Every year, we look forward to our partnering with the Brighton Terrain Park Crew to design an exclusive course that rippers of all ages will enjoy.”

The 19th Annual SLUG Games: Winter Wizardry will take over the base of Mount Milly on Saturday, March 19, 2019. Registration for this free event will begin at 9:00 a.m. The contest will be run in a jam-style format, as it has in years past.

Riders in each division with be awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd Places. These will be determined by marks based off a combination of style, creativity and technicality. Additional awards will be provided for the Best Trick and the Best Crash of the day.
