Cardboard Classic - Mountainfest 2024

Preston & Steve’s Cardboard Classic returns to Montage Mountain on March 1, 2024. 

How did the event get started? Back in 2006, Preston & Steve Show host, Preston Elliot had an idea: invite listeners to build sleds using only 4 materials and race them down a snow tubing hill. It took a bit of convincing, but the bosses officially added the Cardboard Classic to 93.3 WMMR’s Day Off on the Slopes, a station tradition since the mid-80’s. We did not know what to expect those first years, but the creativity of the sled builders blew us away! 

The 4 materials are simple: cardboard, tape, glue and string, but the creations are anything but basic. From 2person bobsleds to 30-person tiki bars; just when we think we’ve seen it all, the listeners find a new way to surprise us.  

This year, the sleds will race down the tubing hill at Montage Mountain competing for prizes based on categories like design, theme, and speed. Preston & Steve’s Cardboard Classic is free for spectators to attend. Sleds must be registered ahead of time.
