No snow required. Ridden my Specialized Fatboy on rocks, roots and dirt and had plenty of fun. Just like I'd have fun with your ski car without going skiing.Thumbs Up

Trick bungee inspired kiddo training pack for skiing & snowboarding.

Is it just me or did this years TO snow show have much less exhibitors and visitors than in previous years? I was there on Friday night and was shocked to see how slow it was. On the other hand, I had the pleasure of meeting a true gentleman, Bebe Zoricic. Bebe's son, Nik was a member of the Canadian Ski Cross team. Nik was killed in a freak accident during a race in Grindelwald, Switzerland. Despite the tragedy and in Nik's honour, Bebe created the Nik Zoricic Foundation to assist young ski racers and make ski racing a safer sport. Have a look at their web site... www.nzfoundation.ca

Bravo Bebe!!!

I was there last night and I agree, it wasn't terribly busy.  Typically the weekends are busier, I expect Sunday will be.  That said, I don't know about the number of visitors, but the whole thing seemed a bit........."less".  Less flash, fewer contests, much more modest showings overall I think.  Not sure if it's a down year or companies are watching expenses more closely?  It did seem a bit underwhelming compared to last year though.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe those are identical to the Langes, except with different graphics.

I was surprised that it was not to busy any of the days- that said, we sold all of the gear @ the Skier's Edge booth including the new World Cup Boot Master that sold for ~$4500 USD.

I wandered by the booth a couple times, I don't recall seeing you (I may have been distracted though with my kids in tow LOL).  If I had seen you, I would have introduced myself! Sorry. I did check out the Zeal and SonyCam booths too, I believe they were right by you?

 

Congratz on the sales!

We were! My better half (the beautiful red headed carver girl) & I were splitting time @ the booth & watching our kiddos! Sorry to not connect! I was stoked by the sales- we sold every machine & arranged drop shipments for a few more!

I made off w the Head WC RD GS's from Algonquin Outfitters for a song as well!
