On Friday, January 12th, the Vail Mountain Adventure Center will host a pre-party to the Honda Sessions Women’s Rail Competition. In keeping with the tradition of cool, athlete-studded Vail Honda Sessions parties, the MAC pre-comp bash will begin at 3:00 pm in the store, and will include appearances from the Roxy, Quiksilver and Oakley snowboard teams, including Amber Stackhouse, a live DJ, prizes, refreshments and more. Hosted by the Intrawest Retail Group, Roxy, Quiksilver and Oakley the party will officially launch the new Oakley and Quiksilver store build outs.

And because no pre-party is complete without a post-comp party, Showcase Snowboards, along with Oakley will also be hosting the after party at Art’s Bar in Vail. DJ Klever of the world famous Allies/Crate Bully’s DJ crew will be returning for his second Colorado appearance this year. The after party will begin at 9:00 pm and celebrate the Sessions athletes.

Not only does the store boast high quality rentals, but a wide variety of retail from the industry’s top brands including Oakley, The North Face, Marmot, Quiksilver, Roxy and Burton. Showcase Snowboards, neighboring partner of the Vail MAC was established in 1989.
