Two-Day Action Sports, Music and Lifestyle Event to Showcase Urban Big Air Ski and Snowboard Competition

SAN FRANCISCO – ICER is thrilled to announce the next evolution of Esurance ICER AIR, an action sports, music and lifestyle event. ICER AIR gained notoriety in 2005 by laying down 16,000 cubic feet of snow on one of San Francisco’s steepest streets and hosting a big air ski and snowboard competition. A year later, Esurance ICER AIR became the first and only stadium event in the United States. Now in its 3rd year, Esurance ICER AIR will feature a 2-day multi-sport event on November 2-3, 2007. This year’s event will take place at renowned AT&T Park, a major San Francisco landmark and home to the San Francisco Giants.

“Esurance ICER AIR is a constantly-evolving event. Each year we try to raise the bar, to do something a bit bigger and a bit crazier than we have in the past,” said Glen Griffin, ICER founder and president. “Our main mission will always be to bring the mountains to the city, showcasing some of the most amazing athletes in the world in an urban setting.”

Esurance ICER AIR 2007 will feature a big air ski and snowboard competition, freestyle motocross, skate and BMX vert and street courses, wakeboarding, 60 exhibitors, 2 music stages, and a beer garden. Olympic and X Games athletes will share the spotlight with a surprise headliner band. And with a new branded look developed by the creative house GriffixThunkit, ICER AIR has firmly established itself as a world-class event in the action sports industry.

“Esurance ICER AIR has become the official kick-off to winter as the best athletes in the world and all of the top players in the industry converge in San Francisco for one of the coolest events ever,” stated event host and Olympic Gold Medalist Jonny Moseley.

Among the many new features of Esurance ICER AIR 2007 is the introduction of a second venue, the Village. Located adjacent to AT&T Park on the opposite side of McCovey Cove, the Village will be home to freestyle motocross, a skate/bmx park, wakeboarding, 60 vendors and exhibitors, a giant ski sale, a music stage and beer garden.
