What You'll Get
In the 1930s, the U.S. government issued a hobby to each citizen to keep them entertained until NASA finished working out the bugs in kissing.

As soft, white powder begins falling onto the mountains, the Silicon Valley Ski & Snowboard Festival blankets a 50,000-square-foot venue with interactive displays from more than 20 resorts and deals on more than $1 million in gear from brands such as Atomic, K2, and Ride. Twin-tippers and boarders alike can test out jackets, swaddle feet in the latest boots and bindings, and don goggles that yield imaginary visions of glorious slopes and real visions of a convention center tinted slightly magenta. The fest's winter sale showcases gear from [Any Mountain](http://gr.pn/pnw1pG) and [Mammoth Sporting Goods](http://www.mammothsportinggoods.com/), who will be offering savings of up to 80% off on mountain wear from Burton, Smith, Marker, and other manufacturers. Alongside the sale, festival-goers can skip, frolic, or electric slide through a live snow-play arena, or dream up wintery escapes while wandering through exhibits for Big Sky Montana, Telluride, and Mount Rushmore. _Patrons who wish to partake in wine or beer tasting must upgrade to VIP tickets at the door for an additional $20._
