Eurolanche returns to Denver

Eurolanche returns to DenverA record-setting number of participants will take part in the Fan Club’s thirteenth overseas trip.

Following a three-year hiatus, the biggest fan club of the Colorado Avalanche returns to Denver. Eurolanche will organize Eurolanche on Tour XIII from February 25 to March 12, 2023. The name of the trip was changed following Russia's invasion of Ukraine. A record-setting number of members – 14 in total from Slovakia, Czechia and, for the first time, Sweden – will take part in the Tour. For 11 of them, this will be their very first trip to the US.

“I’m glad that following a break caused by the pandemic, Eurolanche is finally returning to Denver with the highest number of members yet. Although we’ll only spend two weeks there, I’ve never experienced such a busy schedule before, so I hope that everything goes according to plan and, in addition to eight wins, we’ll experience unforgettable moments,” said Eurolanche Founder and President David Puchovsky.

The program of Tour XIII will be highlighted by eight Colorado Avalanche games, which will be the third time in a row in the event’s history that its participants will attend 8 games in total. Seven of them will be home games against the Calgary Flames, Vegas Golden Knights, New Jersey Devils, Seattle Kraken, San Jose Sharks, Los Angeles Kings and Arizona Coyotes.

Following the first three home games, the participants will travel to Dallas, Texas, where they’ll have the opportunity to support the Avs against the Dallas Stars. The journey to Dallas will be part of a road trip, as Eurolanche members will transfer there and back to Denver in two vans. This will be Eurolanche’s first away game in the capital of Texas. Moreover, this will be the Fan Club’s fifth trip in a row, where the group will attend an Avs’ away game.

This will also be the very first time one of Eurolanche’s trips will include a game against New Jersey and Seattle. Among all other NHL teams, Fan Club members are yet to see the Boston Bruins and Carolina Hurricanes in action. The list of attended games even includes the Atlanta Thrashers.

The program of Eurolanche on Tour XIII will be packed from the very beginning up until the flight back home. It will include traditional stops, as well as places none of the participants of the previous twelve trips have been to. For example, these will include a full-day trip and short walks in the Rocky Mountains, activities around places like Colorado Springs, Boulder, Eldorado Canyon or Northern Colorado State, as well as short stops in neighboring states. The program for each day includes lots of activities, sometimes even several alternatives, which is why the program is yet to be fully specified.

Should the participants of the trip agree on the preliminary program, they will later be able to say that they’ve visited 6 US states in a span of two weeks: Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Nebraska and Wyoming. In case of the trio of Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas, this will be Eurolanche’s first visit.

The road trip to Dallas will be a chapter to itself, which will present an opportunity to visit Southern Colorado State and experience an unforgettable drive with many stops along a section of the legendary Route 66.
