2nd Annual Music Festival at Ski Cloudcroft this June

We’ve done it again, another music festival scheduled for our neck of the woods! 2nd Annual Bad Ass Mountain Music Festival (BAMM) will be held out at Ski Cloudcroft on Father’s Day Weekend, June 17-19, 2011. There will be tons of great local music, downhill mountain biking, hiking, camping, and a variety of foods and refreshments sure to please everyone.
Get your festival weekend started on Friday June 17th at 4:00pm by setting up your camp in one of the many designated camping zones. Live music will be starting around 6:00pm showcasing several Cloudcroft musicians and Nuevo Sol of Las Cruces, followed with a bonfire, Fire Danger permitting. This is just your warm-up for what’s to come…

BAMM Festival 2010

Saturday, June 18th will start around 10:00am with breakfast at your camp! If you’re not prepared to cook, you can grab a breakfast burrito from Dave’s Café available at the Ski Chalet. We know we lost the Café in the recent fire but Dave is still here and ready to cook you a big fat breakfast burrito! The chairlift will be running from 10:00am to 4:00pm for mountain biking and hiking. The layout of the ski area provides a natural amphitheater which lends music to all who are playing in the cool, crisp mountains! If you’re looking to just chill and hang out please do so! Bring your lawn chair, some shade, a tube of sunscreen, and a friend and gather round the music starting around 11:00am. Witness the different genres of music as the day progresses. Music will be heard all day and well into the night featuring Boris & the Saltlicks from Santa Fe, Pioneers of Primetime T.V. from La Luz, and Shotgun Party who has played at the Weed Café before and really entertained the crowds. The late night show will be a surprise that you can’t miss so come join the fun. Food vendors will be selling all types of goodies throughout the day for you to munch on, including subs, fry bread, and good ol’ burgers and brats.
Twenty Dollars ($20) is all it takes to get you as much or as little BAMM as you want. A bracelet will be given at the gate that will let you come and go as you please. This killer price gets you 2 days camping, unlimited music, lift privileges for hiking and mountain biking, and endless memories with great friends and family! Children 12 and under get in free. Unfortunately, because of the crowds, pets will need to stay home for this one.
There will be no campfires allowed however you will be allowed to bring a camp-stove/grill for cooking so long as there is something guarding it from the grass and as fire danger permits. Water will be located around the festival for your enjoyment or bottled water can be purchased to keep you hydrated. Please no glass, and if you pack it in, be courteous and pack it out or throw it away. Remember to bring a flashlight to get around after dark, as well as a sweater to keep you warm as you dance under the stars. And finally they ask that you be packed up and departing the Ski Area by 1:00pm on Sunday, June 19th.

2010 BAMM Committee

BAMM is proud to announce that this years festival will run mostly off of solar energy thanks to Kenny Grigar of Self Reliant Solar located in Austin, TX. Of course this is weather dependant but what a better way to use the sun than for music! The couple just purchased a second home in Timberon and would like to be acquainted with the locals and our events. So stop by at the festival and give them a big Cloudcroft, “Hello!”
Last year was a great success and the BAMM committee expects to see the numbers grow as people want to get out and enjoy the nice summer days in the cool mountains of Cloudcroft. This festival is non-profit and made possible by local businesses and you, the music enthusiast! A BIG Thank You from the BAMM committee!
If you are interested in sponsoring or volunteering for the event please contact Bri at (970) 406-0721. BAMM has set up a tiered Sponsorship program ranging from $25-$300, every little bit helps! By participating, your business/organization will benefit from extended exposure through promotional efforts by BAMM.
