LUDLOW, Vermont — Famous for its annual Buyers Guide issue, SKI Magazine is taking its ski gear test to the people. On Dec. 12 and 13, Okemo Mountain Resort will host SKI Magazine’s premier Super Demo and People’s Ski Test. Representatives from10 major manufacturers and the editors of SKI will be at Okemo’s Jackson Gore Base Area to get skiers on next year’s gear and to get feedback from them when they finish putting all that equipment to the test.

SKI’s gear test is the most comprehensive, objective test in the ski world. SKI’s veteran test teams are comprised of professionals: racers, coaches, retailers, instructors, and even ski town locals. Now, the editors of SKI want to hear what recreational skiers think of the newest gear and they’re coming to Okemo Mountain Resort to find out.

“I think everyone who reads SKI’s Buyer’s Guide issue in September imagines how cool it would be to be one of the gear testers,” says Okemo Marketing Events Coordinator Jeff Alexander. “This is a unique opportunity for the common man to live the dream and have his voice heard.”

On Friday, Dec. 11, skiers can pre-register for the demo in the Roundhouse Mezzanine, from 4-9 p.m. The Super Demo and People’s Ski Test is complimentary and open to the public. From 7-9 p.m., the Roundhouse Mezzanine will welcome the public for a chance to mingle with SKI Magazine staff and equipment reps. A cash bar will be available.

The SKI Magazine Super Demo and People’s Ski Test will operate from 8 a.m.-2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 12 and Sunday, Dec. 13.

Starting at 3 p.m. on Saturday, SKI will host an apres ski party in the Roundhouse Mezzanine.

Discount weekend lodging will be available for event participants. More information is available at skimag.com/superdemo.
