SKI JAM 2005 KICKOFF IN STEAMBOAT

Ski Jam proudly announces the 2nd Annual Ski Jam in Steamboat, Colorado, January 9-14, 2005.

Combining sound, sight, and sport, Ski Jam offers the rare opportunity to experience the foremost jam bands, majestic mountainscapes, and world class snowboarding and skiing--all in an unforgettable five-day festival package.

The captivating artistry of Michael Franti & Spearhead anchors the Ski Jam line-up, as does the innovative performance of Keller Williams, set to return to Ski Jam after his stunning show at last year's inaugural festival. The South Austin Jug Band is also coming back to the Ski Jam stage, where fans will again be enthralled by these Telluride Bluegrass Festival Winners. The rising San Francisco-based quintet Hot Buttered Rum String Band will be making their Ski Jam debut this year. Look for performances at the "After the Hill Chill" in addition to full blown concerts at the big tent, a custom Ski Jam venue complete with propane heaters and an outside bar.
