Boise SnowBall 2018! Sat Feb 10th

Join us for the Boise SnowBall February 10th 6PM-11:30PM at the Boise Bicycle Project Building (1027 Lusk St)!

The Winter Wildlands Alliance SnowBall is a semiformal ski bum gala celebrating connecting kids locally and nationally with winter ecology through WWA's National SnowSchool Program. This is a party with semiformal costume flare- think ski bum meets prom date! Gather with powder-loving friends for a Saturday night of bluegrass music from Curtis/Sutton and The Scavengers, dancing, revelry and outdoor gear prizes!


Want to support the cause but can't make the party? February 3rd – 11th is SnowSchool Support Week and there are several ways to help-
