Value and Deals At Boston.com Ski & Snowboard Expo

From across the region to more distant destinations, mountain resorts showcase their winter season specials at the Boston.com Ski & Snowboard Expo. (Martha Wilson)

Hearty New Englanders know one thing for sure: winter will come again. It’s this optimism that brings us back year after year to the slopes we love, and to the party that starts the season, the Boston.com Ski & Snowboard Expo.  This year’s Expo, the 35th edition, will take place Nov. 10-13 at Boston’s Seaport World Trade Center.


 

“There’s an eternal optimism being in the ski business, and that extends to our consumers,” Expo producer Bernie Weichsel told SnoCountry.com. Skiers and snowboarders may not have gotten their “fix” of winter last year, but like any sports fan, there is a “wait’ll next year” optimism that has winter lovers ready to surge to the slopes this season.

“One of the plusses that is aligning this year after such a bad year last year is that if you are thinking at all about getting skis, snowboards, boots, bindings, or any ski accessories, this is the place to do it,” Weichsel told us.

Metro Boston retailer Country Ski & Sport has moved into the forefront with a huge pop-up store inside the Expo hall. 

There will also be incentives from resorts to get you back on the slopes. Attendees will find many Expo-only deals and giveaways along with a chance to speak with resort reps and learn about how to make the most of your time in the mountains.

In addition to great deals on gear and passes, the Expo also features numerous chances to experience a bit of winter fun right at the Expo.

Children-centric activities include kids’ learn-to-ski/snowboard arenas, games and entertainment.

Flippenout, Boston’s own extreme trampoline show, takes center stage at this year’s Expo. Performances are scheduled throughout Expo’s four-day run, presented by the NFL and Killington Resort.

The new Mountain Activity Center will incorporate the popular Slackers Slackline Demo and Competition arena, and energetic fun and games for youngsters of all ages.

Hours are 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m  to 8 on Saturday and 10 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets cost $15 for adults; 12 and under are free. Get a $3 coupon here.
