7Twenty Block Party

The snow season in Colorado officially begins October 13th at 135 S. Broadway with the 7Twenty Block Party. At 10 a.m the party kicks off with booths full of merch, snowboard experts advertising demos, and showing off the latest trends and technologies in snowboarding.

The event sets itself apart from other season kickoffs like Ski Rex by being more localized to Colorado, and by having more emphasis on the culture of Snowboarding. The vendors include native riding companies like Nightmare Snowboards, Never Summer and Candy Grind. The party will also host industry leaders like Spy and Volcom to show off their newest technology.

Later in the night will be a screening of Nightmarica, a new snowboard film where a team from Nightmare is given freedom throughout both the snow-covered mountains and city of China. The film is brand new and will be the climax of the day long party.

The 10 hour day will also feature food trucks, live music, and two snowboard giveaways from the chief companies Nightmare and Neversummer. The event will be a celebration of all things Colorado riding culture.
