ICER AIR: The idea of skiing San Francisco became a reality two years ago. On September 29, 2005, 15,000 people watched history being made as ICER AIR took to Fillmore Street for the first-ever urban big air ski and snowboard competition. Realizing the potential for this type of event and always wanting to push the limits of creativity, ICER AIR founder Glen Griffin moved the jump to a larger venue, AT&T Park, and on November 4, 2006 turned Esurance ICER AIR into an action sports, music, and lifestyle experience. The one-day event featured BMX, skate, and wakeboard performances and competitions, with the spotlight on the first big air stadium ski and snowboard competition in the United States. The world’s most talented skiers and snowboarders launched themselves off a jump over 100 feet high and 350 long as 28,000 spectators looked on in awe. Continuing the mission of bringing the mountains to the city, Esurance ICER AIR 2007, to be held November 2-3, has evolved into a 2-day, multi-venue series of events, action sports, concerts, and parties. ICER AIR intends to grow into other cities and will announce its future plans soon. www.icerair.com
