Today In Stoke: Denver Pre-Shred Kickoff Party and Chill Snowboarding Benefit at Retro Room

Getting ready to hit opening day tomorrow at Copper Mountain or Keystone? Stop by the Retro Room tonight, 2034 Larimer Street, for a Pre-Shred Kickoff Party and a raffle to benefit Burton Snowboards' non-profit Chill Foundation. The Chill program partners with local non-profits serving at-risk and under-served youth each year to bring more than 170 local teens to the hill for a six-week course in the lessons in patience, persistence, responsibility, courage, respect, and pride that come with learning to ride (click through to make a donation, volunteer, or otherwise get involved). The Pre-Shred party is sponsored by Burton Snowboards, Echo Mountain (they'll be screening the Echo Mountain team video Echodemic Volume 3, sneak peek after the jump) and InkMonstr, and the raffle prizes include snowboards, bindings, hoodies, t-shirts and lift tickets.
