Today is a Paella feast! Prepared in a massive steel pan over open flame, this lunch is almost as enjoyable to watch being cooked as it is to eat! Served piping hot with vegetables and slow-cooked, shrimp and chicken. Buen Provecho! Of course an array of Paninis and Famous Spicy chili and Veggie chili will also be served.

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 cent! er, an Alpina Demo center, and a Rossignol Touring center. Our! selecti on 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!
