Demo Day is back! Meadows and Hillcrest Sports have joined forces to bring you one awesome event! Demo Day is a great event that will help educate you on your next ski or snowboard purchase. It is a great opportunity to test ride your next ski or snowboard, or see the new changes and technologies that you may not have had a chance to see or feel before. The cost is $25 if purchased online in advance or $40 day-of and proceeds will go to support Oregon Adaptive Sports. There will be a limited number of demos so make sure to register early!


Tips for demoing:

  • Try skis and boards for a couple of runs and switch to another ski or board
  • Try testing your gear on the same runs so you can feel the differences between each piece of gear on the same terrain
  • Ask the vendor for a quick rundown on the performance of the gear
  • Take notes on what you rode and what you do or don't like
  • Don't be afraid of new shapes and technologies - sometimes they can help get you to that next level of skiing or riding

Be respectful and patient - this event will be busy. Vendors are doing their best to get you back on the hill quickly and as safely as possible. Setting up gear does take time.

This event is not designed for you to ride the same skis or board all day, it is here as a resource to educate and help you make an informed decision on your next gear purchase. If you monopolize a piece of gear then all the other folks who came to test don’t get a chance to ride it, so help spread that stoke and give everyone an opportunity to try new things.
