For this year's Snow Peak Way, we're collaborating with a number of PNW-based partners to bring the region's spirit to life. From local coffee roasters to handcrafted s'mores, a birdwatching guide, and an outdoor adventure collective – we know campers will love this year's offerings! Read on to learn more about what to expect at Snow Peak Way. Deadstock Coffee: The sneaker-loving coffee experts at Deadstock are bringing their snob-free approach to beans to the SPW campfield. Deadstock Co-Founder Ian Williams will show campers how to make a delicious cup of coffee using a Snow Peak setup and offer a guide to roasting their coffee using the Snow Peak Home & Camp Burner. An assortment of Deadstock beverages will be available at the Café!
1927 S'mores Company: It's not camping without s'mores, so we're partnering with 1927 S'mores, a Portland-based brand creating artisanal s'more kits for an elevated campfire experience. Each camper can enjoy complimentary s'mores during Takibi Time!
Birdwatching with John Connors: Naturalist and biologist John Connors has spent his life and career educating others on wildlife, especially birds. He's the former president of the Wake chapter of the Audubon Society, served as the City Naturalist in Raleigh, NC, and was a Curator for the Naturalist Center at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. John will lead campers in an introductory workshop to bird watching, teaching attendees how to spot and ID birds, use binoculars, and other best practices. Then, for part two, he'll lead campers on a short hike around the site to put their newfound birdwatching skills to the test!
Wilderton Spirits: Oregon-based Wilderton offers botanical spirits unbound by alcohol. Their team of experts will offer aromatherapy, lawn games, spirit samples, cocktails, and a cozy space to relax. You won't be able to miss their sleek mobile bar, the Silver Julep Airstream!
Camp Yoshi: We're excited to continue our partnership with the adventure experts at Camp Yoshi! Co-Founder Rashad Frazier will offer three demonstrations for campers: two tasty recipes to keep morale high, plus his recommendations for creating a functional camp kitchen.
Mizuba Tea: We're pleased to welcome our friends at Mizuba Tea back to Snow Peak Way! Mizuba Tea offers pure and organic matcha sourced from 100-year-old family matcha tea manufacturer in the Uji region of Japan. Mizuba Tea Founder Lauren Dansen will lead tea-making demonstrations and offer a sampling of Mizuba's delicious matcha. Matcha and tea will also be available at the Café and Bar.
In addition to our partner-hosted workshops, there will be other activities available to campers each day. Snow Peak will host a shibori tie-dyeing station, plus a number of arts and crafts for campers of all ages. Every morning, campers can stretch out with a yoga session or head out on a jog. The expansive site offers plentiful possibilities for exploration, and campers are encouraged to hike around the area or simply relax in the fields adjacent to the freshwater springs near the property’s entrance. Finally, Snow Peak Way is unique for its traditions and community moments, and this year is no different! Campers are invited to join the Opening & Closing Ceremonies, nightly Takibi Time and the competitive Paper Airplane Contest! There will also be ample opportunities for connection at the Café and Bar, as well as the Snow Peak Pop-Up.
