I’m sure we all have several different interests such as sports and other hobbies we do in our spare time.  For us here in Colorado, including myself, most of us have a huge passion for skiing and snowboarding. Why not blend festivals, adrenaline pumped snow sports, dope art, unique brands, and music? Well, it’s being done and you should check it out! Even if you are not a skier or boarder yourself, many people find themselves watching events where the best of the best come to really showcase their skills to thousands of people, bundled up and having a blast!

 

Already sounds sick enough, but what a lot of people don’t know about events such as the XGAMES, DEWTOUR, and the BURTON US OPEN is that it’s a giant party up in the mountains.  For several years these events have been happening at epic proportions with some amazing artists coming to play with all these amazing athletes.  Even though it’s usually below freezing, I promise you won’t be any bit cold.  But of course, dress properly!

 

DEWTOUR

DEW TOUR is an event put on by, you guessed it, Mountain Dew; that is held in beautiful Breckenridge, Colorado.  This year it will be held December 13-16 2018.  DEW TOUR  is a contest series that brings together the top skateboarders, snowboarders, skiers, artists, brands and fans to one place to celebrate a diverse and artistic community.  You get to watch it all and experience it all in one place.  A lot of the experiences will be free to the general public, and DEW TOUR’s headliner band this year is The Motet!

This year it will be held January 24-27 2019.  XGAMES brings the party to this years 2019 event with headliners Lil Wayne, The Chainsmokers, Louis The Child, and Kygo.

All of these wonderful Colorado based towns will have much more than just the event experience for you to enjoy.  Colorado is known for its amazing terrain and many different sports you can involve yourself in as well as many well-known restaurants and breweries!  I would highly recommend getting to know a little more about Colorado on your journey out here!

Hope to see some of you shredding and having fun up here in the Colorado mountains this winter season! And remember, dress warm and wear a helmet! On or off the mountain depending on how hard you’re going!
