Denver, CO and Boise, ID - April 28, 2016 - Native Eyewear today announced its sponsorship of the REI Outessa Summit, outdoor weekend getaways for women which offer authentic outdoor adventures led by professional athletes and guides. In its inaugural year, the two weekends will be held at Kirkwood Resort near Lake Tahoe, California, from August 19 to 21, and Powder Mountain near Salt Lake City, Utah from September 9 to 11. Registration opens to the public today.
“Native was on board as soon as the concept was presented. Building community in the outdoors is the epitome of what we hope to inspire with our brand. We know the REI Outessa Summit will prove a grand success,” said Kate Heckman, Director of Marketing at Native Eyewear.
“Through the REI Outessa Summit, we are offering women the opportunity to try something new and experience some unforgettable outdoor adventures,” said Julia Stamps Mallon, co-founder and VP business development of the REI Outessa Summit. “We are excited that Native Eyewear has signed on as the Title Eyewear Sponsor of the event.”
These weekends boast flexibility and variety since each attendee can customize her schedule, although choosing classes might be the biggest challenge as more than 200 options exist. Camping, backpacking, kayaking, outdoor cooking, mountain biking, paddle boarding, rock climbing, yoga, hiking and trail running are some of the offered activities.
Mallon added, “After three days, Outessa women will find inspiration in their peers as well as in their own new-found abilities. We want them to connect with the outdoors and each other during these unforgettable weekends.”
