Olympic and X-Game athletes will show off their stuff in what’s called the “Downtown Open.”

“We’re bringing in snow machines from Arizona to actually produce the snow for us. It’s a process of ice going into the machines and it gets shot out onto the run, groomers come on and groom and sculpt it, and make it ride-able,” said one of the crew members setting up.

The first annual showing of the event begins Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
