TREW Gears Up for PDX Store Opening, Launches Partnership with Snowledge
Trewly, our partnership with TREW Gear is a match made in heaven—if heaven is a bottomless pow day (which, let’s face it, it probably is). We’re excited to announce that we’ve connected with TREW to introduce their high quality outdoor wear to the Snowledge community!
Traditional models are out. We love that TREW is shaking up the outdoor clothing and gear industry by bringing the ski and snowboard community the latest and greatest clothing and outerwear technology. At Snowledge, we’re striving to bring skiers and riders a social tracking app that provides a seamless on-mountain experience with GPS run-tracking, current weather and snow conditions, all while connecting users to local mountain knowledge and real-time content from other riders…and it works at every mountain (resort or backcountry).
Let’s Do This!
We’re kicking off our partnership with TREW Gear with a photo/video contest. We want to see your best #TREWsnowledge #WinterPix submissions for a chance to win one of several prizes, including a Grand Prize Pack and bragging rights. Ever wonder what it’s like to live that sweet sponsored life? Here’s your chance, with our $500 Grand Prize Pack:
- Pair of lift tickets to winner’s mountain of choice

It’s as simple as that! Voting is once per day, per entry—you can submit more than one entry! In addition to the Grand Prize, there will also be a Second Place, Third Place and a Snowledge Choice Award.
We’ll be celebrating TREW’s flagship store opening in Portland, Oregon (also home to Snowledge headquarters), on Thursday, February 23rd. Come join us for goodies and deals you won’t want to miss! (See below for more info on when and where.)
TREW, with their original location based in Hood River, Oregon, sits among the Cascade Mountains and holds a vision for the future of outdoor apparel. Not only are they shaking up the retail model and bringing adventurers gear direct to consumer, they’re also making the online retail experience and top-quality offerings for key outerwear and materials like no other.
Items like the Superlight NuYarn Merino Pocket T [Men’s – Women’s] and the Truce Drop-Liner Backpacks have us stoked to take a trek, or just keep on with the Pacific Northwest lifestyle in perfect style.
TREW began in 2007, when founder Tripp Frey left his Wall Street career to find a path more connected to his values. When Tripp was in first grade, he wrote a book called “Skiing is Fun.” He let this innate passion for mountains guide his next move. Tripp swapped a New York City suit life for the somewhat less hustle-and-bustle atmosphere of Hood River, Oregon, and called up his lifelong friends, brothers Chris and John Pew, with an idea for a bib and a brand. Now, 10 years later, they’re about to cap off a successful decade with a new retail location, in S.E. Portland.
Join the TREW and Snowledge teams at this local soirée, and share the stoke. Free beer, free wine and free food, paired with activities like ping pong, corn hole, and shotski, along with killer deals and giveaways… but let’s face it, we had you at “free beer.” Check out their Facebook event page for more info and updates.
