Toronto and GTA skiers and snowboarders looking to get hyped up for those first tracks this season will want to head out to the Toronto Ski and Snowboard Show at the International Centre in Mississauga next weekend. Here is the lowdown on what to look for at this year’s favourite GTA ski and snowboard show!
From snowy slope lovers who can’t wait to hear about the hottest gear, and outdoor enthusiasts who want to embrace Canada’s winter by learning how to ski and snowboard, to families who want to get the best deals on winter activities and gear, the 2019 show is the perfect place to explore and fire up with excitement for the upcoming ski season.
From November 7-10, 2019 The International Centre in Mississauga will again play host for an expected 28,000 winter lovers to become informed about the latest-and-greatest products, consider travel opportunities, find great deals with the many retail exhibitors, or participate in Canada’s biggest ski and snowboard swap. This is not only an exciting show to gear up for winter, but also to book your winter holiday or simply be surrounded by fellow snow chasers.
“The Toronto Ski + Snowboard show is, simply put, the official start of winter,” said Paul Pinchbeck, president and CEO of the Canadian Ski Council. “This is the one-stop shop for everything related to skiing and snowboarding, from getting the newest gear to booking the best deals on travel, this is where skiers and snowboarders come to be together and enjoy all things related to their passions.”
In addition to the equipment, travel and retail exhibitors, the Toronto Ski + Snowboard Show has a number of interactive elements that the entire family can enjoy, including:
The Ski Simulator: This simulator allows you to sample what skiing is like before hitting the slopes. For the ‘rippers’, you can tune yourself up for the season ahead. The ski simulator offers an endless ski slope on a revolving surface for experiencing skiing indoors. This unique indoor facility provides a controlled and safe environment for first timers and seasoned pros alike. Ski equipment (skis, boots and poles) will be available on site for those interested in trying it out.
Roller Ski Demos: Cross country skiing is an exhilarating winter activity but the experience is possible in any season on cross country roller skis! This great activity prepares people for the cross country ski season ahead while developing balance and endurance. Demo roller skis will be available on site for those who want to give it a try.
Snow Valley Tube Rides: A mobile tubing experience where families can try out the remote tube station that replicates tubing down a mountain.
Canada’s Largest Ski & Board Swap 2019: The Canadian Ski Patrol will once again hold their largest ski and snowboard swap at the 2019 show. Over 2,000 brand new non-current & pre-owned skis, boards, boots & accessories will be available for purchase.
