MTV Snow Jam will take place in front of the recently opened Quay West Resort & Spa Falls Creek, Australia’s only ski-in, ski-out, 5-star alpine resort and spa. Located at the base of the main ski runs of Falls Creek, The Alta Restaurant at the Quay West Resort & Spa will offer celebrities, performers and VIP guests uninterrupted views of the valley, mountains, ski fields and the action-packed show that will be MTV Snow Jam.
To kick off the festivities, MTV is partnering with Burton Snowboards and Falls Creek to create the first ever MTV Rail Jam.
