Who the Event Reaches
Winterfest is the only day all year that SNSA offers lessons to non-members. This means it's your best opportunity to catch the attention of brand-new skiers every year.
Reasons to Sponsor This Event
SNSA's events are frequently covered by The Spokesman, The Inlander, OutThere Outdoors, and more. We hire a professional photographer/videographer for every event & post about them frequently on social media.
This event introduces new people to Nordic skiing, which for many, cultivates a life-long love of winter sports and the outdoors in general.
The lessons at this event are also discounted to $10, making the sport accessible to families of any income.
Lastly, through humorous competitions and a treasure hunt for kids, this event encourages camaraderie and reinforces hundreds of friendships in the Nordic skiing community.
