Al Salt dei Mat: jump and land on a giant soft air mattress
Customs want that the closing of Bormio’s winter season may correspond to to an exuberant and fun party driven by a pinch of lucid craziness. The end of season event 2017 will keep all the features of the ten-year Pozza dei Mat (Pond of Mads) but bringing in a breath of fresh air with an hilarious format.
The participants will have to jump from a snow kicker with skis, snowboard or sled and try to catch an object – a plastic chicken – hanging in the air a few meters up. The more the chicken goes up in the sky the more the value of the wager increases: a lot of prizes will be given out among which a Bormio season ski pass 2017/2018 and a weekend in hotel in Rimini (RN).
The landing doesn’t have to intimidate since it will be soft and safe: a giant air mattress (20 x 20 m) will soften the ground impact. Just one alert: the helmet will be mandatory.
The “Jury of Mads” will also assign a few special prizes to the most original and spectacular jumps. A professional team of entertainers will give the crowd a good time. From the stage in Bormio 2000 live music will bring fire to people’s mood: dancing on the snow will be inevitable. For children a playground area with inflatable slides will be available.
