Celebrate the coming of winter while helping give back to the Colorado Avalanche Information Centre.
BOULDER, Colo. – October 16th, 2014 – SCARPA North America invites backcountry enthusiasts along Colorado’s Front Range to help welcome the 2014-15 ski season with an 80’s-themed Ski Bash on Oct. 24 at Sanitas Brewing in Boulder, Colo. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Colorado Avalanche Information Center.
From 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., SCARPA and friends will ring in the ski season with dancing and live music from Boulder’s very own 80’s cover band, The Goonies, beverages from Sanitas Brewing, and food supplied by McDevitt’s Tacos. Raffles will be taking place throughout the night, with prizes supplied by the following Front Range and Colorado-based companies: SCARPA, Sanitas Brewing, Backcountry Access, Rab, Zeal Optics, Meier Skis, SkiLogic Skis, Jason’s Nut Butter, Silverton Mountain, Skratch Labs Nutrition and Hydration, and Skiing Magazine.
“We wanted to find a way to connect with the local community and give back to an organization that so many in our community rely on throughout the winter,” said Samantha Killgore, Marketing Manager at SCARPA North American. “And what better way to do that than by throwing an awesome, 80’s themed party and celebrating the start of the new ski season. Make sure to bring your dancing shoes and the best retro ski outfit you can find.”
Sanitas Brewing is located at 3550 Frontier Ave., Unit A, Boulder, CO 80301
