Introducing First Chair Festival

POWDER and Newschoolers take over Salt Lake City's The Complex for day-long block party

It’s like your neighborhood block party, but with pretty much everything you could want to get you excited for winter. On September 17, POWDER and Newschoolers are bringing you a first-of-its-kind experience at Salt Lake City’s event space, The Complex. We’re wrapping skiing, music, and culture into one deluxe burrito that will feature movie premieres, a rail jam on a two-story, custom-built park, curated photo exhibitions, product giveaways, concerts, and retail exhibitions. It’s the preseason event you won’t want to miss.

“First Chair Festival is going to be skiing’s kickoff party,” says POWDER Editor John Clary Davies. “We want to celebrate winter’s return with the best skiers, films, retail brands, and music acts all in one place.”

Hope to see you there. Tickets go on sale July 22.
