As all skiers and snowboarders know, a good snow season depends entirely on appeasing the snow gods. REI has a long and glorious tradition of Pray for Snow parties. This year, we’re throwing eight, in stores across the country (see sidebar). All parties are ’80s themed, featuring our traditional Twinkie roasts, bonfires and beer.
We’ll also be showing the Powder Magazine Film, Monumental: Skiing Our National Parks.
You’re invited to our Pray for Snow parties! See individual stores for more details.
A retro skier costume is a must. Think mustaches, puffy snowsuits, skinny skis.
Chili evokes that ski-lodge coziness. So does beer.
What’s more fun than synchronized shooting? Make your own for bonus points!
Rock the ’80s favorites so everyone can sing along.
Remember to start fires responsibly—always use a fire ring.
The Twinkie roast is an REI tradition. Once we even burned a unicorn made of Twinkies.
Get stoked for a great snow season ahead!
Make your own self-contained, portable waxing table and impress your friends.
