2nd Annual Give Back to the Valley Day!

On Saturday, October 20, 2018 we will again donate all of our profits for the day to local 501(c)3 organizations.

Give Back to the Valley Day 2017 was huge success! Bristlecone Mountain Sports donated nearly $14,000 to five local non-profit organizations!

Bristlecone is more than just a place to shop for clothes or buy a tent, but a place to share in community—to bump into friends, share stories and knowledge, and bond over shared passions. These passions fuel our community and we want to give back to support all the amazing work that is being done in the Roaring Fork Valley by our local non-profits. Specifically, we would like to focus on giving back to local non-profits who work to protect, educate, and inspire.

Protect - Protecting our wild spaces through conservation, trail work, land management policy, etc.
Educate - Educating our youth and the rest of the community regarding outdoor recreation, wilderness preparedness, environmental stewardship, etc.
Inspire - Inspiring our community to get outside and responsibly recreate in the beautiful spaces of our collective backyard through trail projects, organized group trips, film, art, etc.

 

If you would like your non-profit to be considered as one of the beneficiaries of our Give Back to the Valley Day 2018, please submit an application.

Applications are due on Tuesday July 31, 2018 @ 11:59pm

We will announce our selection for beneficiaries by Friday August 31, 2018

 

Requirements:

  • 501c3 in good standing that works to protect, educate, and/or inspire as described above.

  • Promotion of the event - the success of this fundraising event depends on you!

  • Physical representation of your organization in-store from 9-7pm on October 20, 2018.

Colorado Public Lands Day Hike & Happy Hour

Colorado Public Lands Day Hike & Happy Hour

What: Public Lands Day Celebration Hike and Happy Hour
Where: Arbaney Kittle Trailhead, Capitol Creek Brewery, Bristlecone Mountain Sports
When: Saturday, May 19. Hike 1-4 p.m., Happy Hour 4-6 p.m.
Cost: RSVP. Hike is free, complimentary appetizers and discounted beers for happy hour
Map: Google Map

What better way to celebrate your public lands than taking a hike with friends? Two years ago, State Senator Kerry Donovan sponsored a bill recognizing May 20th as Colorado Public Lands Day, and it passed into law! This year will mark the second annual celebration of what we hope will become a wonderful statewide tradition of honoring our public lands. 

To commemorate this special occasion, Wilderness Workshop is leading a free, public hike on Saturday, May 19 on the Arbaney Kittle Trail outside of Basalt. We’ll be convening in the parking lot at 1 p.m. (while the parking lot offers generous space, the Holland Hills bus stop is within walking distance). We’ll hike at a nice pace for about two hours and have a discussion about public lands while enjoying a breathtaking view of Mount Sopris. 

After we return to the trailhead, we’ll head over to the Capitol Creek Brewery for a happy hour from 4-6 p.m. Enjoy apps on us and two discounted beers! We’ll be raffling off some great gear from Bristlecone Mountain Sports and they’ll offer discounts on merchandise in their store, which is right across the street. You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about public lands and how you can help take action to protect them. If you plan to attend either the hike or the happy hour (or hopefully both), please RSVP.

For a suggested packing list, click here

And if you’re not in the area on the 19th, there are literally dozens of events throughout the state. Check them all out here.

Directions to Arbaney Kittle Trailhead: From highway 82, exit on Bishop Lane about a mile east of Basalt. Take second left onto Holland Hills Drive. Follow the road over two speedbumps, arrive at trailhead parking lot. 

Directions to Capitol Creek Brewery: From highway 82, exit Willits Lane. In the first roundabout, exit right onto East Valley Road. Follow through parking lot area, take left on Market Street. Capitol Creek Brewery is in this plaza. Park there or in the Whole Foods parking lot.

Colorado Backcountry Skiing Book Tour Presentation

6:00 PM18:00

Colorado Backcountry Skiing Book Tour Presentation

Backcountry Ski & Snowboard Routes: Colorado

Featuring Brittany & Frank Konsella

Co-authors of Backcountry Ski & Snowboard Routes: Colorado

 

Full description:

Whether you’re an experienced backcountry skier or snowboarder or an intermediate skier looking to ramp up your out-of-bounds expeditions, Brittany and Frank Konsella can point you in the right direction. Authors of the new guide, “Backcountry Ski & Snowboard Routes: Colorado” from Mountaineers Books, the Konsellas have the cred to guide you to the state’s special runs. Both have descended all of the state’s 14ers on skis, with Brittany being the second woman to accomplish that feat.

 

From the powder hound mecca of the Park Range in the northern part of the state to the rugged cirques of the Indian Peaks in the Front Range to the steep couloirs of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the south, the Konsellas have skied them all. Every route in their new book can be done in a single day, but there are also many options for creating casual overnight trips.

 

Come hear the Konsellas as they share their favorite Colorado routes while offering backcountry skiing tips related to avalanche safety, route timing and planning, and navigation. Whatever your skill level, from easy and moderate tours to steeper, more challenging advanced routes, there’s something here for anyone who loves powder, and is itching to find some new runs this winter.
