Posted By: The Ski Channel on December 10, 2010 7:26 am

This weekend, Okemo Resort will play host to the SKI Magazine Super Demo and Peoples Ski Test as well as the Mountain Dew Verticle Challenge.  The events kick off friday December 10th with a pre regristration happy hour for the Super Demo.  Although i don’t have a comfirmed time,  Iwould ventrure to say late afternoon for that…

Saturday features the Demo as well as the Mountain Dew Vericle Challenge. It began in 1991 as a series of free casual ski and snowboard races held on mountains throughout the northeast and west.  Skiers and snowboarders are divided by gender and age to compete for gold, silver, and bronze medals in each category. In addition to the race, prizes are given away throughout the day on the mountain.

So come on out and demo some skis and enter an event or two.  You may just make the podium and walk away with the gold!
