To celebrate their collaboration and support of Desert X, Gucci and The North Face created a stylish geodesic dome to serve as the dedicated Pit Stop for visitors to Desert X 2021.

Located in downtown Palm Springs, The Pit Stop is located in close proximity to a number of hiking trails in the area and just steps away from the Palm Springs Art Museum and the entrance of the Cactus to Clouds trailhead, a challenging 19.8 mile point-to-point trail featuring soaring Coachella Valley vistas.
