A wild day on the slopes at one Pocanos ski resort.

A giant sled competition drew a huge crowd to the Jack Frost ski area on Friday (3/7) in Blakeslee, Pennsylvania.

Participants who took part in "The Cardboard Classic" event made their impressive sleds out of cardboard, glue, tape and string.

Around 150 sleds got up to the top of the snow tube hill, but not all of them made it down in one piece.

The sleds ranged from a massive train to a two-story pontoon boat. There was even a recreation of the Emerald City--from the classic film "Wizard of Oz."

Many of the sleds made it down the steep slope with participants sitting on them while others broke apart. Not everyone made it without falling.

Offiicials say the ski patrol is always on hand to make sure everyone is okay. One minor injury was reported.
