Tired of no snow this winter? This Saturday, Recreational Equipment, Inc. is giving New York its snowfall of the year to create a winter wonderland in SoHo. REI encourages the responsible use and enjoyment of the outdoors, and to do that this year they’ve set up a variety of events for their Winter Festival. Through several 15 minute mini-clinics, attendees will learn about Nordic skiing, winter camping, and snowshoeing from expert instructors.
In addition participants will get hands on outdoor product demos of the newest skiing and snowboarding gear available at REI’s new SoHo store on 303 Lafayette Street as well as a lift ticket which they can redeem for in-store giveaways and discounts. Participating retailers include North Face, Patagonia, Smartwool, Garmin, Columbia, Cascade Designs/MSR, Burton and others.
To add to the festive atmosphere REI will also be hosting live ice sculpting by Okamoto Studio, tasty hot beverages and other engaging activities by their retail partners such as Burton Boot Pong.
