My wife and I just got back from the show. It was disappointing - parking $12, admission without coupons $10 each. Once in, it was by and large a 'travel and tourism' show, which, if you've already got your seasons passes worked out, wasn't worthwhile for the most part. There were some lift & lodging discount opportunities..... The tourism and ski area folks were friendly and working hard, however.
We were expecting more in the way of products - more demos & discussion from ski & boot manufacturers (most seemed tired & bored), more new clothing (zero in this area - no North Face, Arc'Teryx, Bonfire, Helly Hansen, Spyder, Karbon, nada, niente, zilch). The goods on sale were by and large middle of the road items left over from last year (some good deals if this equipment suited your needs).
A few of the high spots for us were a fun chat with Martin Heckelman at the Ski France booth, a chance to meet and talk with Paul Richelson (NH bootfitter), the K2 rep was very knowledgeable and excited about his line of skis, the Ski Museum folks had a nice display (neat calendars for sale), and, as I said, the area reps were great.
These 2 New Hampshirites won't be returning next year - better to spend a nice day visiting Boston.
