SnowBomb Ski & Snowboard Festival
Each year, the SnowBomb Ski & Snowboard Festival steeps NorCal-powder addicts in gear, lift tickets, and mountain-ready swag, all offered for free or at discounted prices. Reps from area resorts such as Heavenly, Squaw Valley, Mammoth, and Bear Valley are on hand to dole out season passes and highlight their most recent facility improvements, such as faster lifts and more advanced yeti warning systems. Meanwhile, mountain outfitters such as Atomic and Burton show off this season's newest gear and winter sport shops such as Lombardi's, Ground Zero, and the Sports Basement offer discounts on repairs and equipment. Amid the flurry of excitement and demonstrations, local breweries and wineries pour their warming libations for festival goers schussing from booth to booth.
