Big Air, Big Powder
... in SF?
As if San Francisco didn't have enough cool happenings to keep your schedule packed already, when we hear that someone is closing down Fillmore Street for two days, shaving 12,000 cubic feet of ice, and building a 30 foot jumping ramp so that they can ski and snowboard the streets of San Francisco we have to spread the news!
On Saturday, August 27th the steep slope of Fillmore Street from Broadway and Green and Vallejo Street between Webster and Steiner will be closed down, snowed up, and turned into a ski jump for the $100,000 SF Big-Air Pro-Am 2005. Featuring Olympic gold medalist Jonny Moseley (no relation to Bill) and twenty of the best skiers and snowboarders in the world, this event consists of a run down Fillmore Street at breakneck speeds, a 30 foot ski jump, and a 70 foot big-air flight from Vallejo to Green Street.
The event will be filmed for Fox Sports, Fuel TV, MTV2, Spike TV, and will be featured in Moseley's upcoming videogame. Expect to see the Isotope in attendance!
