Test-drive the latest gear at Okemo

Okemo Mountain Resort will host its fourth annual Super Ski and Snowboard Demo on Saturday, Dec. 8.

Representatives from major manufacturers will be on hand, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., with all the latest gear for skiers and riders to demo at no charge. A credit card swipe will be required, however, for participation. Some of the ski brands expected to be available to test drive are: Head, Ramp, Faction, Kastle, Atomic, Nordica, Salomon, Volkl, Elan, Blizzard, Rossignol and others, Snowboarders will

be able to demo: Ramp, Never Summer and Bean.
"This is the best way to buy equipment," says Okemo Snowsports Shop Assistant Director Dave Martin. "Why would you purchase new skis and snowboards any other way?"

Skiers and riders visiting Okemo can try all the new toys: fat skis, twin tips, carving skis, telemark skis, snowshoes and helmets, for a daily fee, or with the purchase of a new "Demo Pass" season pass package. Edges also demos lightweight, composite ski poles and top-of-the-line helmets.
