EVOL Burritos in partnership with Okemo Mountain Resort, Crested Butte Mountain Resort, Mount Sunapee Resort, Nordica, Reverb and the Bud Light Concert Series, announces the launch of a new concert and lifestyle event called FestEVOL. The event kicks off at Okemo Mountain Resort on March 19, 2011.

In its inaugural year, FestEVOL is bringing O.A.R. and the Pete Kilpatrick Band to three of the nation’s top ski resorts for a unique lifestyle experience combining mountain sports, live music, and a sustainability-focused “eco village.”

“FestEVOL is a rare opportunity to experience a top-tier band like O.A.R. in an extremely intimate and picturesque setting,” said Jon Jennings, EVOL Burritos director of communications and FestEVOL spokesman. “FestEVOL was built out of a relationship and is a collaboration of like-minded brands that want to bring friends and family together with the activities and causes most important to them.”

FestEVOL will travel to Crested Butte Mountain Resort, in Colo., on March 26, 2011, and Mount Sunapee Resort, in N.H., on April 2, 2011. Ticket packages will include lift ticket options for skiers and riders to package the event with their on-mountain experience.

As part of the IZSTYLE Winter Tour, each FestEVOL event will feature the Reverb Eco Village.  This interactive village includes local regional and national environmental non-profit groups alongside alternative energy and transportation exhibits. The Eco Village also highlights all-natural/organic food sampling and ski and snowboard equipment demos with Nordica and Burton Snowboards.
