[Full Recap] FREESKIER’s Top Shop Celebration rocks Breckenridge

[Full Recap] FREESKIER’s Top Shop Celebration rocks Breckenridge

For the last month, we’ve been calling on skiers everywhere to vote for their favorite ski shop in our inaugural Top Shop Contest. The contest was exciting competition that brought in tens-of-thousands of votes, hundreds of write-in shop nominations and participation that reached coast to coast in the United States and throughout Canada.

Voters rallied to give their local shop the chance to be skyrocketed into the realm of ski shop royalty and to earn all-important bragging rights heading into this winter season. To cap off the contest in the best way possible, the FREESKIER team threw an après party at Rocky Mountain Underground’s Tavern in Breckenridge, Colorado, to celebrate all the amazing ski shops and voters who participated in the Top Shop Contest.

FREESKIER’s Top Shop Celebration began at 4 p.m. local time, just after the lifts stopped spinning, and offered guests a free ski waxing from two of Breckenridge Ski Patrol’s finest ski techs. To cap things off, deals on classic post-shred cocktails like Montucky Cold Snacks, as well as music from FREESKIER’s very own DJ Hawt Dogg, set the celebratory vibe that stayed going long into Friday night.
