It’s time to demo some new skis! We are a Fischer Hole Ski Demo and Race center, an Atomic Race Demo Center, a Salomon Race Demo center, an Alpina Demo center, and a Rossignol Touring center. Our selection of skis, boots, poles and bindings is very strong and diverse for racing and touring, and there is no charge to try any of them. There’s no better way to find the perfect ski package than to try them first! The “Let it Snow Sale ” continues!
This will be a Pure Michigan winter day to X-C Ski!
