Melee In The Mountains 2024
Dobson Ice Arena – Vail, CO
What is Melee In The Mountains?
Melee In The Mountains is a “mini-tournament” in beautiful Vail, Colorado. It is entirely free-agent based meaning players will register as individuals and will be placed on a team. Teams are drafted as evenly as possible to promote the best and closest competition.
What ages is this event for?
We have nearly every level including 8U, 10U, 12U and 14/16U. Our 8U division will play jamboree style half-ice games. Our 10U-14/16U divisions will play 5 on 5 full ice hockey as usual. Seeing as this tournament is built with fun in mind, our 14/16U division is entirely non-checking.
Why was this event created?
The sole purpose of this tournament is literally to forget about everything. Forget about taking hockey too seriously. Honestly this isn’t even about the hockey (okay, well maybe the tiniest bit), but forget about stress at work for one weekend. Just head up to Vail, relax, let loose, hang out with family & friends and have fun while meeting new hockey families. The scoreboard? Who cares! You’re in one of the most beautiful mountain destinations – the hockey is just a little bonus on the side! Take the time to just have….FUN. This is a huge social event and one of may favorite parts is meeting new faces and hanging out with everyone. Truly a classic event that you don’t want to miss.
