This Saturday, hyphy rap will collide with snow sports in one gigantic, exciting party held in Denver. Zion I will headline the Snow.com Mix Party presented by Freeskier and Colorado, Epic, and Summit Pass Club holders as well as SIA attendees will get to celebrate the ski season off the slopes.
The event will be held at the Ogden Theater in Denver (935 E. Colfax Ave.) Doors will open at 7:30pm for passholders and 8:00pm for the general public on Saturday, Jan. 29. Mr. Lif and the Gift of Gab will go on at 9:00pm and the headlining act, Zion I will hit the stage at 11:00pm. SIA attendees can pick up their tickets inside the tradeshow at the Vail Resorts booth #4521. Passholders can get their tickets through their Season Pass Clubs email.
Before these acts hit
the stage, a Snow.com featured film will premier and tons of swag will be given out. The event is limited to 1,500 people on a first come, first served basis. So just because you may have a ticket, doesn't mean you'll get in. A cash bar will be available to general admission ticket holders.
Mr. Lif, Gift of Gab, and Zion I are all hyphy artists - a type of rap formed out of San Francisco. Mr.Lif, who goes on first, is from Boston and released his latest album I Heard it Today in 2009. He has appeared in the ski movie Saturation by Absinthe films in 2003.
Oakland, Calif. artist Gift of Gab will take the stage shortly after and is a member of Blackalicious and released his solo album Escape 2 Mars in 2009.
Headlining the party is Zion I, a hip hop duo out of Oakland whose music has appeared in ski movies Refresh, High Five, and Shanghai Six by Level 1 Productions. Producer and DJ AmpLive and MC Zumbi just released their new album, Atomic Clock, which is available now.
The Snow.com Mix Party will highlight the many features on Snow.com like EpicMix, and Buzz as well as show off some of the amazing footage captured for the website this year. Freeskier magazine will be there and introducing industry insiders to pro athletes and spreading the snow sports love.
