Venture Snowboards and Ska Brewing are once again teaming up to welcome winter in style with their annual Season Kickoff Party scheduled for Saturday, December 20th (Silverton Mountain’s opening day).
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the event, for which the two homegrown Colorado companies have been producing a small run of custom graphics boards and a special winter brew each year. This year’s brew is a an oak barrel aged version of Ska’s Euphoria – aptly named Dementia after a decade of collaboration. “We jokingly refer to ourselves as the microbrew of snowboards because we build high quality boards from scratch,” explains Venture’s Lisa Branner. “Ska takes the same approach in crafting their beer, so teaming up is a natural.”
The Season Kickoff will feature live music, Ska drink specials, and product giveaways like lift tickets, goggles, and more. The highlight of the evening will be the raffle for a coveted limited edition Ska/Venture custom snowboard. This year’s deck is emblazoned with the Dementia graphic, and is destined to become a collector’s item for beer and snow lovers alike.
The Season Kickoff Party gets rockin’ at 7 pm at Silverton’s Grand Imperial Hotel (1219 Greene Street). Cover charge is $6 and this is a 21+ event. Raffle proceeds benefit the Center for Snow & Avalanche Studies.
A community Christmas dinner provided by First Congregational Church.
