"It's really pretty cool to have all of the Colorado brands showcased at a single event like this, and the early-season terrain park at Copper is a great place to put these snowboards and skis to a proper test," says Mike Gagliardi, sales rep for Denver-based Never Summer Industries.
Other Colorado companies on hand include Icelantic and Meier Skis; snowboard makers Weston, Oz and CoLab Movement; and outerwear manufacturers Freeride Systems and CandyGrind.
"I think there's a lot of value in local roots, which is what we've been about from the beginning and is the reason you'll see a lot of the hard-core locals on our boards," says Gagliardi.
Colorado Days runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. tomorrow, with a Battle of the Bands at 4 p.m. this afternoon. Admission is free, but donations will be gladly accepted to benefit Colorado flood victims via the Red Cross. For more information, go to coppercolorado.com.
