SACRAMENTO — Get ready for winter next weekend, Nov. 14-15, with the 10th annual SnowBomb ski and snowboard festival at the Cal Expo Center in Sacramento. According to organizers, the event features over $1 million dollars in retail goods at up to 75 percent off of retail prices with a variety of entertainment, food and beverage options. Products include last year’s models of apparel, skis, snowboards and other hard goods, along with discounted lift ticket packages.

“We have the best deal in retail, lift tickets and season passes to prepare you for this year’s monster El Niño,” SnowBomb general manager Paul Ortiz said of the inspiration for the event.

This year’s festival will include free general admission to celebrate the group’s 10-year anniversary. It also aims to promote enthusiasm for the upcoming season after four down snow years in the Sierra Nevada. General admission to past festivals has been around $12.

“We just want to amp people up for the ski season,” Ortiz said. “It snowed this week so we’re optimistic that everyone is going to be hyper-focused on winter. “

Representatives from Whistler/Blackcomb, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Steamboat Springs, and a number of other destination resorts will be on hand with lift pass offers as well. In addition to producing the festival, SnowBomb offers their own ski pass and lodging deals at discounted rates.

The two-day ski- and snowboard-focused event will also feature BMX and skateboard demonstrations by X Games-caliber athletes on an 18-foot indoor skate feature. Those who opt for $50 VIP passes will be treated to free beer and wine tastings each day. The event will open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 14-15.
