The general public can experience everything the Woodward Copper Barn has to offer at the 2017 Woodward Barn Bash on Saturday, Nov. 11. Groups of friends and families are invited to bounce, skate and ride in the 19,400 square-foot facility with free sessions, live music, giveaways, movie premieres and more.
It all kicks off at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday with free Barn sessions beginning at noon offered on a first-come first-served basis. Intro Sessions are fully coached sessions designed for newcomers to The Barn, while drop-in sessions are open-gym style for those who have already completed an intro session.
“This event is designed as a community open house that welcomes kids, parents and the young-at-heart into The Barn to check out what Woodward Copper is all about,” said Chris Stellato with Woodward Copper.
An exclusive expression session for skate participants will take place at 4:30 p.m. in the skate bowl with professional skater Taylor Bingaman and the Satellite Boardshop team.
“If you’re a parent bringing the kids, stick around in the afternoon for live music from the Well Beings,” Stellato said. “Those who are coming later for the films are encouraged to come by around 5 p.m. to enjoy tunes from DJ Landry, as well as a cash bar and food.”
The fun continues into the evening with an autograph signing featuring pro snowboarders Torstein Horgmo and Cam Fitzpatrick before the lights dim for premieres of some of the latest ski and snowboard films including ShredBoots’ “R3BOOT,” which includes footage from Woodward Copper terrain parks at Copper Mountain. Additional features include Arbor Snowboards’ “Cosa Nostra,” and Faction Skis’ “This is Home.”
