Join us for our Bretton Woods Demo Days this winter! At these demos, skiers will be able to test the newest gear from vendors such as Rossignol, K-2 and Armada. See below for a full list of brands.
The best part is that these demos will be right on the snow; so no need to get off the slopes! Just visit the demo area next to the canopy tour building at Bretton Woods for a custom fit set of skis (and sometimes boards) and an opportunity to discover a new favorite. Use of demo skis at these events are complimentary and skiers will be required to fill out and sign a release form.
Please check back for updates as more demos are added.
