Demo days at Wild Mountain this weekend

Posted By: The Ski Channel on November 18, 2010 6:14 am

Greetings from Wild Mountain! This past couple of days have been better for snowmaking. It is fun to watch our wide strip of snow get even wider each day. Although, with the 8” of natural snow we received last weekend it almost looks like we could be 100% open. If the forecast holds true we anticipate having a minimum of 5 runs, 2 ropes, 1 conveyor and 2 chairs open by Saturday:

Beginner runs
Daisy & Dandy  with a terrain park set up on Daisy
Intermediate Runs
Advanced Run(s)

There is always a possibility of more, but the weather has been unusual. Please check the website each day for updates.

We have an exciting weekend planned for all of you snow lovers. This weekend we are happy to team up with the world’s best ski and snowboard manufacturers to present our 34th Annual Demo Days. Now you have the opportunity to test drive the products that you have seen reviews about in the national publications. Try from a wide variety of brands and models you will be sure to find the gear that fits your needs and style. Make a list of your top choices, then head to your favorite local shop and make your buy! Don’t miss this opportunity to see and hear from the world’s best ski and snowboard manufacturers.

Here is a list of the ski and snowboard companies expecting to participate:







Fischer (Sat. only)












To Demo equipment you will need to have a driver’ss license, credit card and your ski or snowboard boots. There is a $10 fee for unlimited demos for skiing and no charge for unlimited demos for snowboards. Demo Days will run from 10am to 3pm both Saturday & Sunday.

Want to add something exciting to your winter experience this season a representative from Contour will be on hand with the latest model of their innovative product. Contour is the maker of the world’s first (and lightest) HD helmet cam and the world’s first wearable GPS video camera. ContourGPS and ContourHD are the ideal hands-free video cameras to shoot and share HD video for your active lifestyle. Light enough to fit on your goggles, their compact and rugged helmet cameras make high def video possible for you!
