Season Kickoff Party Carbondale: Saturday Oct 21st

Posted on September 27 2017

There is nothing like snow in the peaks early season to get the party started! What has become a yearly tradition with our friends at Slow Groovin BBQ in Marble is coming to you Saturday October 21st at our store in Carbondale. For just $5 you get an amazing plate of home cooked barbeque right from source that we love so well. Meet a new ski partner, bring your own, but most of all come help grow the amazing backcountry community of the Roaring Fork Valley and Colorado. Food starts being served at 5pm!

Share the opening party with some friends on facebook!

If you made it out to Slow Groovin this year to their location in Marble or Snowmass you probably noticed some similarities with Cripple Creek Backcountry. We seasonally share some of the same employees that love to get out into the mountains and ski. But if you look closely it is the same Tequila that goes into your margs at Groovin that is also hidden away on the back shelf our ski shop. We put 1 and 1 together and realized we should put a new twist on the preseason partying and invite Suerte to the ski shop with Slow Groovin. Best of all for you our liquor license only lets sell beer and wine so the margaritas are free to everyone attending this private party.

Some come hungry and thirsty and help us ring in the 2016-2017 season!
