If there’s one thing the OutThere Colorado team loves, it’s supporting a great cause that’s geared towards getting more people outside. One Colorado spring skiing event that can’t be missed is Arapahoe Basin’s annual “Save Our Snow Celebration” and demo day. Visitors can pay a small fee to try out tons of awesome new gear, and proceeds benefit the High Country Conservation Center, an organization that’s main focus is spreading awareness and education about preserving Colorado’s high altitude environment. We took the team to this year’s event, bringing doughnuts, leis, and of course, a camera. Here are a few of our favorite shots from the day.
