Winter is almost upon us, which means snowboarding and skiing are right around the corner. The Snow Bomb Ski and Board Festival will help kick off snow season in the Bay Area. The expos will take place this year in Sacramento, San Francisco and San Jose, on three different weekends in the month of November. On top of offering attendees free lift tickets from the likes of Sierra at Tahoe, Dodge Ridge and Bear Valley, Snow Bomb also gives them a chance to become immersed in the season. There will be movies, BMX exhibitions, discounted gear sales, beer and wine tastings, live music and learning centers for beginnners.
