Subaru has announced the return of Subaru WinterFest, a series of events that celebrate the winter season.

Designed to be a one-of-a-kind experience, Subaru WinterFest 2018 is the Japanese automaker’s mountain destination and lifestyle tour that features a blend of entertainment and adventure in amazing places. This year, Subaru WinterFest will feature stops at 11 top winter mountain resorts in the U.S. where attendees can enjoy live music, locally sourced food and beverages, daily giveaways, gear demonstrations, and more. In partnership with POWDR and its experiential division, Human Movement Inc., outdoor enthusiasts will have the chance to meet up, warm up, and relax before or after hitting the slopes.

Each tour stop will have warm treats like craft coffee and s’mores thanks to sponsors OZO Coffee, Smash Mallow, and Chocolove. There will also be upgraded hang out areas such as hammock zones, charging stations and fire pits by Solo Stoves, and music provided by SiriusXM. Each day of WinterFest will feature live demonstrations and giveaways from partners Nordica, Lib Tech, Thule, and Klean Kanteen.

In addition, Subaru will once again team up with National Ski Patrol to send patrollers and their dogs to the Wasatch Backcountry Rescue avalanche dog training school, donating $1 to the Subaru National Ski Patrol Avalanche Rescue Dog Scholarship Fund for every information form received.

“As fierce advocates for both the outdoors and welfare of animals, Subaru is proud to partner with the National Ski Patrol in creating a scholarship fund for avalanche rescue dogs,” said Alan Bethke, senior vice president of marketing, Subaru of America, Inc. “Able to search significantly larger areas than human rescue teams, these skilled canines are tremendous assets to patrollers nationwide and we are excited to help expand this important program this upcoming year.”
