Located in our hometown of Mt. Crested Butte, Colorado, the Blister Summit is the only consumer-focused gear test and demo event in the world. Test skis, snowboards (solids & splits), ski boots, apparel, and avalanche safety gear in the backcountry and on-resort; talk to company founders; ski or ride with Blister reviewers and professional athletes; learn from designers and innovators in nightly panel sessions; make some new buddies; and have a great time.

Over 96% of Blister Summit participants surveyed said they will definitely be coming back to the next Summit, and 100% said they would recommend the event to their friends.


All Summit events will be located at Elevation Hotel & Spa in Mt. Crested Butte, Colorado. Elevation is located at the base of Crested Butte Mountain Resort, steps away from the lifts.


For 2024, the Summit will include 4 days of on-snow activities & panel sessions, from February 4th to February 8th.

The event will kick off around 5pm on February 4th and will run through 10pm on February 8th.
