What do we do in November while waiting for safe, skiable snow in the mountains? Well, Silas Wild had a good answer – Gather with other sliding deprived addicts and Party for Snow! To that end, he went to check out EVO’s grand opening celebration of their hip new store at N 35th Street and Stone Way. This is what he had to say: What a beauty it is, full of new gear and enthusiastic kids ready to set us up to slay the powder when it arrives. As usual, EVO had some great skiers, great artists, and lots of fun on hand yesterday when I toured the new facility. I saw just about every new ski for 2012-13 in stock, state of the art boot fitting, huge new repair shop, and a great bar and casual restaurant plus a skate park (under construction) in the Fremont Collective shared space.In the evening, Pro Ski Seattle hosted their annual get ready for snow party with a keg, ski movies, and all the new boots and skis. The fun continues Sat., 11/10 at EVO with a huge sale, free giveaways from 686, live music and a silent auction. And now it looks like Mother Nature is trying to do her part to load the slopes for us!
Congratulations to Bryce Phillips on the new store.
