In all my years skiing I've never actually done one so forgive my ignorance here.
As some of you may know (as per another thread) I been in the market for new skis. Some have suggested doing a demo day. I may get a chance to get to one next week if it I can swing it.
Do you have to pre register or register at the mountain that morning?
Do they limit the amount of people who can register?
Do you have to register for each manufacturer?
Do you have to book specific time to try each ski?
I will try to do this on a Friday vs a Saturday because I assume it wil be less crowded and hope to demo more skis. Is that logic correct?
Basically - How does this all work??
honestly even if I could swing getting there I am having doubts because there is just no way currently the conditions will offer anything real worthwhile yet in the poconos and could be pretty much a waste of time. On whatever few manmade snow trails are open I would expect either ice sheets if its really cold or slush if its warm. I'm thinking may be just wait till some time in January instead after some better base is established. I'm not looking to drive 3hrs upstate and that's why the poconos makes the whole thing a bit more practical right now. Actually (for decent news) looking at a 3inch coating in the forecast for wed n thurs and then mid 30's Friday so conditions (if that holds) may just work pretty well on those limited trails :) But we'll see what happens.
anyway, what should I expect and what should I look for in relation to my above questions and whatever else you can tell me. If I can even get it done, its not something I'll get much opportunity to do so I don't want to do this and be very limited to what I can ski. Just want to make it all as worthwhile as I can so please fill me in on the hows and whats about a Demo day that will allow me to get the most out of it. Thanks
