From the ashes of your burned-out 21st century social life comes the coolest party adventure you’ll ever hear about. L.A.-based actor/producer John Pick — who has already hosted nearly a dozen such events in the Los Angeles area — Teams up with Messenger Aspen to bring The Snowball Party to Aspen Saturday, March 25 and Wednesday, March 29. The Snowball Party— which LA Weekly described as “ingenious” and “a surprisingly low- pressure way to make connections, meet someone, or get to know the city a little better” — begins as multiple groups of two people meet up and share something unique and fun. Then each pair finds another pair, then keeps doubling it until it “snowballs’ full-fledged party.
Here’s how it works: A select, even number of people will be invited to participate in the 21- and-older evening. The four-hour evening will start at an exact time (don’t be late!!) with each invitee meeting a pre-assigned partner at a special location (i.e. a fortune teller, the art museum, or Carl’s Pharmacy). Once you’ve paired up, a text message will assign you a fun task to complete together. Soon, you’ll snowball with another nearby pair, and receive instructions for the next unpredictable part of the night. The groups of four will then morph into tight-knit bands of eight. The bands of eight will roam the streets of Aspen, soon snowballing again into packs of 16, then into prowling posses of 32. The impossible-to- predict event will climax at a final destination where the two groups of 32 will join forces for a final party of 64.
There will be music, there will be food and drink, and beautiful randomness will flourish. And participants will share the totally unique story of their evenings with fellow adventurers along the way. L.A. Snowballers have called it “a scavenger hunt where you collect people” and “a party for the fearfully curious.” The specific line-up of destinations and activities will be kept secret until the night of the event to keep the adventure a surprise to participants along the way. Locals will enjoy being paired up with unfamiliar faces while discovering under-explored aspects of their own town, ASPEN SNOWBALL! and visitors will get an inside look into the marvelously unique experiences and locations that make Aspen so special.
