The California Ski Company in Berkeley is having a little mixer tomorrow night. I'm going, and hope you can make it, too! My company, the Outdoor Adventure Club is going to be donating a splitboard weekend rental to the raffle prizes, too. If you're unaware, the CA Ski Co is very much a ski-based shop in Berkeley. If you want good service, they are the game. They are well known for their boot fitting. If you want discount prices, and discounted service, move along.
California Ski Company will host a Backcountry Mixer on Sat, Nov 16 from 4-8pm. There will be a short talk on backcountry skiing, gear and safety. Check out the latest avalanche airbags.
This will be a great opportunity for the winter sports community to come together. You can meet and greet, find ride shares/ski leases and celebrate the start of the season! Blizzard, Head, Stockli, Tecnica, POC, Dynafit, Ortovox, and Zealios Reps (to name a few) will present their new products and answer questions.
There will be a raffle benefiting the High Fives Foundation, a Truckee non-profit dedicated to raising money and awareness for athletes that have suffered a life altering injury while pursuing their dream in the winter action sports industry. http://highfivesfoundation.org/
$5-/raffle ticket or donate a gently used jacket (to benefit a local charity). Awesome prizes to be announced.
4:15-4:30: Welcome to California Ski Company
4:30-5:15: Backcountry Talk

Enjoy light snacks and refreshments as you peruse the new gear, get fitted for boots, catch up with old friends and make new ones for Winter. Snowboarders, come check out the latest splitboards!
