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.

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.
