15th Annual Cardboard Box Derby


Join our sponsors at Grand Targhee Resort for the 15th Annual Cardboard Box Derby. Watch as cardboard artists and mechanics turn little more than cardboard, paper, tape, glue, and string into the most creative sculptures that you can think of like dragons, race cars, UFO’s, and more.

Test your creativity by constructing a cardboard craft able to swoosh down the ski hill carrying you and your team members. The rules to building your craft are simple: constructed solely of cardboard, paper, glue, tape, and string. Sponsors names must be printed somewhere on the craft. Complete rules and a release form are available; see download on website. The event is $10 to enter; all entry fees go toward prize money for best craft in both juniors and adults.

Your cardboard vehicle may be simple or complex with up to 4 adult (or 6 under 18 yrs of age) pilots to maneuver down the ski hill. Remember the more creative your craft the better your chances for winning. This will be a great way to end the season at Grand Targhee. Group entries are encouraged: bars, restaurants, motels, ski shops, coworkers, etc. There will be fun for everyone including music, outdoor sun tanning, watching the race and awesome spring skiing.
