Powabunga: A Mountain Experience

There is a special breed of music festival that has been growing its space in the past few years. The destination ski festival is a unique and luxurious experience that many festival planners have worked very hard to execute. Around the world, festival producers have been trying their hand with Tomorrowland Winter, Snowbombing, and Snowglobe all appearing recently. Locally, Colorado has had quite the turnover amongst these festivals as shows like Snowball and Pretty Lights Telluride have come and gone. Powabunga, curated by Full Send Productions is here to give their hand at an over the top, cold weather, ski town festival.


Selecting the perfect ski resort for this kind of experience is easy. Vail is the mecca for lavish mountain experiences and is easily accessed from the Front Range. Although perfect, this location demands excellence and Powabunga has taken the demand in stride. The Vail residents are particularly demanding and the last major festival, Snowball, with headliners like Bassnectar and Rusko didn’t exactly leave them thrilled. Powabunga heard these concerns and have come up with a perfect musical and activity lineup to win over the locals.
Starting on the mountain, Powabunga will be hosting a costume ski party to really integrate the energy of the mountain into the festival. Keeping that energy flowing artists such as De Lux will be snowboarding directly to their set, bringing a piece of the mountain spirit with them. Whether they plan to ride directly to their set or not, artists like Zhu, Bob Moses, Justin Jay Fantastic Voyage, and Ishi are sure to provide unique and mesmerizing sets throughout the weekend.

Off the mountain and after the show Powabunga also has you covered. Teaming up with some of the best lodging options in Vail, they are offering great deals at West Vail’s Double Tree and Evergreen Lodge. If neither of those options work for you, the area is full of vacation rentals through AirBnB and VRBO. Just make sure to stay close because when the main stage closes is when the fun really begins. Starting at 10pm each night Powabunga’s perfectly curated late night parties are sure to make memories and get you and your friends through last call.


Whether you are an avid skier, music enthusiast, or just a hunter of good times, Powabunga is the festival for you. The Full Send Productions team is working tirelessly to ensure that the details of the festival is as perfect as its location.
