Zip up your neon ski suit and start practicing your daffies and backscratchers because this party is gonna be totally rad. Fun activities and giveaways from vendors like Arc'Teryx, Darn Tough, and Kari Traa. Steamboat will be ready to party with games, give-aways, and an exclusive ski pass for only $219 - plus you can meet their Director of Skiing and Olympic Gold Medalist, Billy Kidd! Local ski resorts and community partners will be joining the party too. Dress for the weather so you can roast s'mores around bonfires, watch the new Teton Gravity Research film "Far Out," and experience the Traveling Foundry where you'll assist in turning molten metal into commemorative event coins. Food, beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase and preregistered guests will receive their first drink on us. Don your 80's retro skiwear, neon spandex and old-school onesies to walk our fashion show runway, get great photos and the best dressed will win great prizes too. We'll help summon the snow with a Twinkie burning offering to the snow gods - an REI tradition. Let's bring on those positive vibes for the ski and snowboard season and raise a glass to FRESH POW!
