Ski and snowboard consumer expos are a great way to get ready for or learn more about the sports. And, they are FUN! Most feature music, demos and food samplings PLUS the latest deals from resorts and product suppliers. Can you say DISCOUNTS? Shows feature gigantic sales on equipment, clothing and accessories. Some include ski and snowboard swaps.
Attend an expo and Bring a Friend! Shows have already started (and some are over) but most will continue through the fall. See the schedule below.
Expos in Denver and Boston are among the best with various special features for the entire family.
Some shows also provide indoor lessons and most offer an opportunity to sample culinary and beverage selections of some sort. See the schedule below for details. Photos: Boston Ski and Snowboard Expo
