You have some good info there. I'll probably go with my son. Not sure which day. Have you been before? Some complain about sterile venue and low number of vendors at this annual show, but if you can make use of the freebie lift tics and enjoy W. Miller films it is worthwhile for those that don't have to travel too far to get there. Sometimes at this show the Snowtime resorts give out free early season tickets on top of the offerings you listed above. Note, they've added general travel venders to this event this year, but who wants to go to the Bahamas during February?

I'll more than likely be there Saturday morning. I've got some skis to be put in to the swap.

I was planning on riding out there tomorrow morning, but might wimp out. If I make it, I'm the smelly old guy with a mullet hairdo and gray chin stubble if you want to "hook up"...

I'm heading over this morning so I can check out the vendors and then catch the noon showing of the Warren Miller movie...somebody bring the popcorn!

It's a little too far for me today. I'm tempted, plotted an interesting route, W&OD, Waples Mill road among the highlights, but my ankle has been bothering me. Maybe next year...

I remember when they had it in a hotel in NW. That was a long time ago, over twenty years. Wow. I don't remember the hotel, but it was a nice location for the ski show.

The Philadelphia one was just plain terrible.
