This Weekend in Stoke: Make the most of Denver's dump
If you're avoiding the roads altogether, today's a great day to check out the Art of Winter exhibits downtown before they come down on Monday, and to put your bid in on a piece of art by one of 20 local artists who painted recycled skis and snowboards for the show. We like Troy Derose's nod to one of our favorite lines from the John Cusack classic Better off Dead (pictured at left).
Snowboard Colorado is celebrating its February 2012 magazine release with a dubstep party tonight at Casselman's Bar & Venue, 2620 Walnut Street, featuring Ana Sia, Coult 45, Luni Toons, and E.V.S. ($15 at the door), with giveaways and drink specials all night and, we imagine, crews heading out from there for urban jib missions.
Headed for the hills after all? Here's what's up:
Winter Park hosts a United States Ski and Snowboard Association (USASA) sanctioned slopestyle and superpipe competition on Saturday and Sunday in the Dark Territory jump line and Rail Yard terrain park.
And the Backcountry Babes are hosting a full-day women's telemark clinic ($160) at Loveland on Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
