Some 50,000 New Englanders are expected to pass through the Boston.com Ski & Snowboard Expo hall this weekend at the Seaport World Trade Center- and for good reason - making winter ski and snowboard plans, finding deals on family vacation packages, lift tickets, travel and ski/snowboard gear – much at Expo-only specials.
There is lots of live action from aerial trampoline exhibitions to fashion shows and a multi-media show highlighting extreme skiing action around the globe. In this Winter Olympic season, the Expo sets the stage to celebrate the U.S. Ski and Snowboard teams, capable of winning medals in all events in February.
Ski and Snowboard Hall of Famer John Egan and Sugarbush Resort will host a colorful mixed media presentation showcasing some of the most famous extreme skiing footage ever captured on film. Egan’s “WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?” will showcase some of the most daring exploits on snow-covered mountains around the globe.
Plus the “I KNEW THAT—SKI TRIVIA GAME” on the High Country Stage presented by Mt. Snow - Kids can compete for prizes in this interactive fun game.
U.S. Resort Management will present the "Urban Freestyle Show" featuring talented ski and snowboard athletes performing high caliber pro tricks on a synthetic snow surface.
The All-Season Mountain Adventure Center brings the “Urban Freestyle Show” with video ski games, a bounce house for the little ones, bringing on the laughs and action for all ages.
