    Thursday (as in tomorrow) is a free demo day here. Not sure about the temperatures, but I do want to demo as my Hero's are coming to the end of their lift.

    We have lots of good snow, but there is also a lot of the ice under it. If the runs are groomed, it's OK, but otherwise it's ice to snow puff and back.

    So is there anything in the carver range that someone has questions about. Also it's only Salomon, Atomic, Blizzard, Dynastar and Rossi. Not sure about Nordica, but it's the sister to Blizzard so maybe.

    My list - Hero HP and Hero AT. Dynastar Intense 12, Rossi Famous 10.

    I'm curious about how the Blizzards changed. New look, new name, but how much has the ski changed physically?

    Depending on who is here from Blizzard, I'll ask some questions. I do know the Ottawa area rep too.

    Sorry @Lmk92 It's-20F and they are making snow everywhere. I'm heading back to the condo.

    It was really bad coming down from the top. Ski school were all using the Gondola to download. I skied by Braille for 1/2 of McCullough. TG for trees!!

    I met up with the Salomon rep I know. He said they were going to shut it down early. The female they have was doing Burpee's to keep warm!!

    Oh, that's really a shame. On any day, but especially on a demo day.

    I really wanted to come to Mt Tremblant for the demo day in December 2017! Could not make it this time. However, I will be there for the February demo day!

    My last demo in Tremblant last season made me fall with a Blizzard Alight. Had no opportunity to try them the second time, though... :(

    I have the old version of the Alight - the Quattro. I absolutely love them. I wondered what else changed, other than the name. I'm afraid to attend a demo day this year, lol. My family's"quiver" is overrunning our garage.
