Ski season is in full swing here on the East Coast with a cold front providing great temps for snow making and even the possibility of a little natural white stuff coming down later this week. Skiing and snowboarding is great really great, but there are significant hurdles to overcome to get on the slopes. One of the biggest being the price of admission. Lift tickets don’t come cheap, and then you have to buy or rent equipment, have the proper apparel, etc. The price tag can roll up pretty quickly. If you go skiing a lot, or even just once or twice every winter, it pays to have a set of your own gear. Boots fit snugger, skis stay sharper, and one is just way more comfortable on the slopes riding their own boards. Plus, if you aren’t out there every day, a solid set of boots and boards will last you a good long while, decades even with the way they make stuff these days. But that’s a big investment and you want to make the right decisions for your skill level, aggression, terrain, etc.So, how do you do it?You go to Snowshoe Mountain Resort Demo Days. Snowshoe will host the biggest names in the snowsports industry this weekend to provide free demos of their latest and greatest gear. Techs will be on hand to custom fit you, make suggestions on what you should be looking for, and helping you get into some new gear. If you are looking for a new set of skis or a new snowboard, or are just trying to get an idea of what you should be looking for in the equipment you use, don’t miss this opportunity to pick the brains of the guys and gals that know everything there is to know about skis, boards, boots, and bindings. This is also a great chance to do some holiday shopping reconnoissance for that special shredder in your life.Demo Days will be happening on Saturday and Sunday, December 14-15, and all you need to participate is a photo ID and a regular lift ticket. If you are an experienced skier looking to step up your game or a novice just seeing what’s out there, this event is not to be missed.See you on the slopes!
