A favorite event of Powder Daze fans year after year is our VIP Night, our party to kick off the sale.

The launch party was complete with a contest for a Rocky Mountain Super Pass, and delicious beer (root beer for the kiddos) from Tommyknocker to wet the whistle. We had a blast!

Why isn’t the sale offered at all Christy Sports locations?

If you don’t live in the vicinity of one of our Powder Daze locations, we understand you may need to put a few miles on your vehicle. However, we’ve narrowed it down to just one location on the Front Range and one in Summit County. This way, we can bring all of our amazing pass partners and incredible inventory together in one location for your convenience! You’ll even catch some of the ski and snowboard reps making their way down the mountain to partake in the fun in Denver. Plus, if you can’t make it to one of our Powder Daze locations, you can shop the gear and apparel deals online.

What if I am looking for a specific item at Powder Daze?
