Get ready for the original Ski and Snowboard gala. In the 1960′s New York businessmen J. Negley “Cookie” Cooke, Ralph “Doc” DesRoches and others started the New York Ski Ball. Well, The New York Ski and Snowboard Ball is approaching us for another year, and it’s happening this Thursday, October 29th. These gatherings have always been a great way for athletes to mingle and get to know the people who have supported them for all these years. On the flip side, it’s a great way for enthusiasts to hang out with the athletes

Rockstar nordic Champion Billy Demong said: “The Balls are a great time for us, as athletes, to connect with the people who support our Team and who help contribute to our efforts. It’s always a lot of fun to get together and help share the evening with some people who are excited about what we do.” Added Lindsey Vonn, “the Balls are a great chance for the U.S. Ski Team and U.S Snowboarding families to spend time with the people who have supported us throughout the years. We can celebrate the things we have all accomplished and work together for a great future.”
