Special thanks to our friends Rick and Paul of Sole Technology, an Action Sports company based in Lake Forest, CA for their generous donation of the ‘thirtytwo’ brand snowboarding boots. We have chosen to give these boots to Edison High School Alpine Winter Sports Club in Stockton, California; the club serves less fortunate inner-city youths.

The club credits Ron Schwartz(elementary school teacher, ski instructor, compassionate charity/activity organizer) as the driving force behind the effort to give these youths their first skiing & snowboarding experience made possible with kind donations of ski, snowboard equipment, gear and snow sports clothing by Bay Area residents, sporting goods retailers and brand vendors.

About Sole Sole Technology:

“We have been in the Action Sports business for over 25 years designing & manufacturing skateboard footwear & apparel and in the snowboard boot business for over 15 years designing and manufacturing snowboard boots and outerwear under the thirtytwo brand. Check out our brand at:”


Prospective Donors:

Consider giving to a good cause; donations to Snowpals are in turn given to a local charity or compassionate non-profit organization. To donate, please .

Advance thanks! ♥
