What is Gelande Quaffing you ask? We’re going to leave it to the video above to give you some insight. The long & short of it involves sliding a mug of beer down a slippery surface to a partner on the other end who must ultimately catch said beer once it has left the edge of the table, mid-air, and proceed to drink that beer. This may seem a little aggressive to some but we can assure you that the spectating is highly entertaining for those not willing to partake. Festivities take place in front of Apple’s Bar & Grill on the Warm Springs side of the hill.
Oh yeah, and it’s all for a good cause. Proceeds will go to the Sawtooth Avalanche Center. Start practicing your spin moves, dig out your best costumes and get ready for a rowdy good time.
