Ultra5280's Ultimate Guide To SIA Parties

With the big SIA (SnowSports Industries America) Convention about to invade Denver, a who's who of companies, athletes, and musicians will make Denver their own playground this weekend. We have done some detective work and have got the scoop on most (if not all) the biggest parties in town. We also have some great concerts in town from Ellie Goulding to RJD2. We will be crashing some of these parties so follow us on Instagram (ultra5280) to see what kind of shennanigans we are up to.

Getting things started are the crew at K2 presenting, what is now becoming a tradition, their annual K2UESDAY at The 1UP.

Once again the K2 Snowboarding in the Rockies Krew is bringing K2UESDAY! to The 1up. We will be kicking off the beginning of SIA week here in Denver. Once again we will be playing "Games for Gear" so bring your Skee Ball, Pin Ball, Jenga and gaming skills down on the 24th. We will have prizes from K2 Snowboarding and Planet Earth Clothing. Spread the word to ALL your friends, let's kick the week off bigger than ever. We will have drink specials all night as well as random free drinks from the Krew. Sign up for games is from 8-10 with games beginning at 10PM. Stay tuned for more info or hit us up on Facebook with any questions.

686 Lights Out, a charity boxing event with the industry's finest, returns with boxing, bro's and brews during SIA on Thursday January 31, at Casselman's Bar and Venue in Denver, CO. Come watch professional snowboarders and industry insiders step in the ring for three rounds of hard hitting action to separate the men (or women) from the boys, all in the name of charity. "I feel like if you get asked to box, you need to step up. This is what being a part of our industry is about and what sets us apart. If you say no you will always wonder 'what if?' The people who I see shine are the ones who can't help but step into the arena, whatever it is and come as it may." proclaims Steve Klassen, founder of Wave Rave Snowboard Shop and one of the night's contenders.

Guest referee Danny Kass, and host Dingo, will be be on hand making sure contenders come out fighting and keep things somewhat clean, while a panel of pro shreds will sit as guest judges and determine the victors. "I'm excited to see all of our industry under the same roof doing something old school," said Dingo. "Everything today is so overhyped and produced, I'm just excited to be a part of Lights Out and see some blood!"

The night will kick off at 8PM sharp and also include the exclusive premiere of the 2013-14 snowboard video teasers. "We are excited to see the card forming. People are coming out of the their usual safe settings and putting their pride on the line for a good cause," said Brent Sandor, 686 Director of Marketing. "There are only a couple of spots left, and they are going fast." Registration information can be obtained by emailing Brent directly.

686 Lights Out is ticketed entry only. Tickets can be obtained from 686, Electric and Skullcandy at SIA on Thursday Jan 31, and will go fast. Don't sleep on it or you will miss out.

686 Lights Out is presented by Electric and will feature sounds provided by Skullcandy as well as 2013-14 video teasers by kidsKNOW. Additional support is provided by Grenade, Peligroso, Pabst Blue Ribbon and the entire night benefits SOS Outreach, a nonprofit building character in youth through outdoor adventure.

AEG Live and Icelantic are teaming up for the second installment of Winter on the Rocks. 2012 marked the first ever winter concert at one of the world’s most iconic venues, Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Chuck Morris from AEG Live Rocky Mountains says “We believed the allure of Red Rocks could be magnified by putting on a winter event. Last year proved we were right, the show sold out weeks in advance and garnered rave reviews from all. We are honored to bring Macklemore & Ryan Lewis to create another legendary winter event.”

Sam Warren of Icelantic echoes Chuck Morris’s passion. “Icelantic Skis define innovation and exploration, and the inaugural Icelantic's Winter on the Rocks proved these ideas apply to the live concert experience, as well as the snow sports industry. We are thrilled by the outpouring of support from our partners who have eagerly endorsed round two of Winter on the Rocks and are excited to create a unforgettable experience in the middle of winter at Colorado’s favorite venue.”

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis hold a singular place in both the Pacific Northwest and beyond, emerging as a premier national hip-hop group with numerous career highlights to their name. A genuine lyricist and an electrifying live performer, Macklemore, with his producer Ryan Lewis, have garnered critical acclaim and a devoted fan base. The duo has generated undeniable momentum with Macklemore’s feature on the cover of XXL’s Freshman Class of 2012, along with a highly anticipated full-length album and accompanying sold-out world tour.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ music is distinct for channeling cultural moments and refreshingly self-aware testimony through candid lyricism and expertly crafted production. Their work has captivated listeners around the world, with a combined total of 20 million views on YouTube and a passionate fan following on social media. Their body of work demonstrates an impressive variety of musical influence, experience and subject matter, all in a voice unmistakably their own.
