Supporters were more than happy to document the occasion-generating a whole lot of self expression...

Beyond fun…sponsor PATRON Tequila did more than just serve up libations-they sponsored the Scenario Photography winter wonderland -set-up that gave attendees a chance to creatively make their own snow angels, pics taken overhead by a camera, ably directed-props appropriate! INCLUDED-a personal touch by humans- hair dryer finishes to rid all of those flakes.
BOMBER SKIs-the official supplier of the US and Canadian teams-unveiled their latest collabs with the foundations of  NYC's mega-talented artists Keith Haring and Jean Michel Basquiat-both - whom- we are pretty sure did not ski but blessed the planet with their creative visuals.
