It’s important to note that while every pass deal will be available in Denver, a limited number will be offered at our Dillon location. We look forward to seeing your smiling faces each year, so passes will not be offered online. Passes will also not be offered at our Steamboat location. (only amazing gear deals)

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?

But hey, we think you’ll be glad you stopped by. If you find your dream item online, buy it and we’ll ship it to you!

Can I return items purchased at Powder Daze?
