Every year just before ski season opens, the Boston.com Ski & Snowboard Expo gathers representatives from the sport’s foremost gear manufacturers and destinations under one roof for deep discounts and an unveiling of the latest models. Visitors can slalom from booth to booth, where they’ll be able to check out shiny new equipment by Rossignol, Marker & Völkl, take advantage of season-pass discounts from resorts across the country and the Northeast, or practice their shadow puppetry while wearing gloves by Marker. Meanwhile, interactive exhibits invite audience participation, and live demonstrations aim to wow onlookers.
Now in its 34th year, the 2015 Expo also includes a massive sale of East Coast Alpine equipment & clothing and a beer garden brimming with beer from Long Trail Brewing Co. Guests will regale with acrobatic antics during the Skyriders! Trampoline Show, and the Wachusett Mountains Kids Snowpark and Learning Center where youngsters can get ready for the winter without standing in front of an open freezer for days on end.
