The first Echo Team Challenge, which took place in 2007, brought three-person teams dressed as unicorns, escaped convicts, 80s-style gymnasts and yeti men. The unicorns better known as Team Majestic stick out in Molines mind as having the most hilarious costumes yet. To steal their glory, grab two of your closest jib- and rail-loving friends and hit the thrift shop on your way to the mountain today for the events third annual incarnation. Teams can be coed and include skis and snowboards and all levels of ability. There are no real restrictions as far as how theyre comprised, Moline says. Theyre judged on their team theme and overall riding not whos the best, but how they work together as a team.
