At its core, Snowboard on the Block is a celebration of all things snowboarding and an effort to unite our community. We are proud to announce our partnership with an organization that does a remarkable job bringing boarders together to support a common cause, Protect Our Winters. Founded in 2007 by professional snowboarder Jeremy Jones, POW is “the environmental center point of the global winter sports community,” and a leading force in the fight against climate change. The organization has fostered a global community and their work in Colorado has been outstanding.

“The largest community of POW members in the U.S. is in Colorado, so we’re thrilled to be part of this amazing event and spreading the word that we all have a part in protecting the Colorado winters we love so much,” says Chris Steinkamp, POW’s executive director.

Snowboard on the Block will also feature a huge gear sale put together by core snowboard shops like 7Twenty Boardshop, Emage, Hoyal Boards, Big Hit, Vail Skate Supply, Salty Peaks, Boarding Haus, Blindside and so many more.
