Consumer Shows - Great Way to Get the "Skinny" on the Season
Consumer shows take place in the fall. Shows are fun, entertaining and full of energetic people who would love to tell you what you need to know to get involved this winter. Most feature music, demos and food samplings as well as the latest deals from resorts and product suppliers. Shows feature gigantic sales on equipment, clothing and accessaries. Many include ski and snowboard swaps.
Attend a show and "Bring a Friend"! See the Schedule below for shows that may be taking place near you.
The L.A. Ski Dazzle provides indoor lessons on special ramps and also offers an opportunity to sample culinary selections at its Taste of Winter food demos. Windy City and Peter Glenn are retailers that host large sales and produce their shows. Most shows are organized by independent producers that also include retailers and consumer product suppliers who stage sales at the show.
