THE TORONTO SKI + SNOWBOARD SHOW KICKS OFF WINTER 2018
46 years of experience in getting people excited about winter
TORONTO (October, 2018) – With chilly weather in the air and snow in the not too distant future, it’s time for Canadians to embrace our ever-changing seasons. From ski and snowboard enthusiasts who can’t wait to hear about the latest winter trends, people who want to lean how to ski and snowboard to families who want to get the best deals on winter activities and gear, the show is ready to help people of all skill levels embrace winter.
From October 25-28, 2018 The International Centre in Mississauga will again play host for an expected 28,000 winter lovers to get informed about the latest-and-greatest products, consider travel opportunities, find great deals with the many retail exhibitors, or participate in Canada’s biggest ski and snowboard swap. This is a great show to gear up for winter, book your winter holiday or simply be surrounded by people who love the cooler months.
“The Toronto Ski + Snowboard show is, simply put, the official start of winter,” said Paul Pinchbeck, President and CEO of the Canadian Ski Council. “This is the one-stop shop for everything related to skiing and snowboarding, from getting the newest gear to booking the best deals on travel, this is where skiers and snowboarders come to be together and enjoy all things related to their passions.”
In addition to the equipment, travel and retail exhibitors, the Toronto Ski + Snowboard Show has a number of interactive elements that the entire family can enjoy, including:
The Ski Simulator: This simulator allows you to sample what skiing is like before hitting the slopes. For the ‘rippers’, you can tune yourself up for the season ahead. The ski simulator offers an endless ski slope on a revolving surface for experiencing skiing indoors. This unique indoor facility provides a controlled and safe environment for first-timers and seasoned pros alike. Ski equipment (skis, boots and poles) will be available on site for those interested in trying it out.
Roller Ski Demos: Cross country skiing is an exhilarating winter activity but the experience is possible in any season on cross country roller skis! This great activity prepares people for the cross country ski season ahead while developing balance and endurance. Demo roller skis will be available on site for those who want to give it a try.
Axis Freestyle: New to the Toronto Ski + Snowboard Show is the Axis Freestyle Demo Area. What stands out the most is the demonstrations using Snowboard Addiction Training Snowboards/Skis, balance bars and balance boards. These are pieces of training equipment that are used in their facility which make practice and repetition so much easier to attain. Which in turn reduces the chances of injuries and increases the success rate when trying the skills on the slopes.
VR 360 Cylinder: New this year at the Toronto Ski + Snowboard Show and building on the popularity of last year’s VR experience, we will be bringing in an all-new VR 360 projection cylinder, putting you at the centre of the action! Featuring content from the Olympic channel, you will enter the world of Olympic athletes and experience their stories from their point of view, placing you on their field of play.
Snow Valley Tube Rides: A mobile tubing experience where families can try out the remote tube station that replicates tubing down a mountain.
Canada’s Largest Ski & Board Swap 2018: The Canadian Ski Patrol will once again hold their largest ski and snowboard swap at the 2018 show. Over 2,000 brand new non-current & pre-owned skis, boards, boots & accessories will be available for purchase.
ONTARIO Zone: The Ontario Zone will be jam-packed with travel information, resort deals, lift passes and more! Be sure to pick up the highly sought-after coupon for your Buy-One-Get-One-Free ticket deal brought to you by the Ontario Snow Resorts Association
RAM Ride & Drive: Back again at the Toronto Ski & Snowboard Show is the popular Ride & Drive operated by RAM. Make sure you test drive one of their great trucks and just for trying it out, RAM will give you a $10.00 Esso Gift Card!
