No green was in sight on Asphalt Green’s athletic field after winter storm Jonas. The first snow of the year dumped 30.5 inches on New York City, more than enough for our annual Snowman Showdown, a free family friendly day of winter fun at our Upper East Side campus.


On January 24, 300 people flocked to our athletic field to play in the powdery snow. This year, we upped the ante on participants’ snowman-building skills by introducing a Sportiest Snowman contest. The titles went to Snowman Swimmer and Snowwoman (both pictured above). Huge thank you to New York City Council Member Ben Kallos for sponsoring the event. Scroll through the slideshow above to see the most adorable photos from the day, and relive the action.
