Deals abound at Toronto Ski, Snowboard & Travel Show

Best place in Ontario for equipment, fashion, travel

These may be cold economic times, but there are plenty of ways to keep your family entertained without breaking the bank. The 2009 Toronto Ski, Snowboard & Travel Show offers families a winter’s worth of entertainment.

Show attendees can find many cost-effective solutions to replacing snow equipment for the entire family. The Canadian Ski Patrol’s Winter Extreme Ski & Board Swap is the largest and best ski and snowboard swap in the country. It offers thousands of brand new non-current and pre-owned skis, boards, boots and accessories for purchase.

“We’re happy to be affiliated with such a great program” says Show Manager Heather MacRae. “It really helps bring the fun of the winter season to families at a more affordable cost”.

Visitors are also encouraged to bring in their family’s used and outgrown equipment for a cool profit. Pre-loved equipment can be dropped off at the Better Living Centre, Exhibition Place beginning October 14 and for the duration of the Ski Snowboard & Travel Show.

Every purchase made at the Winter Extreme Ski & Board Swap helps support Canadian Ski Patrol training programs and volunteer first aid services at ski resorts across Canada.

If you are looking for some entertainment for the family before the snow hits, the Ski Snowboard & Travel Show is a great place to take the family. Check out the Altitude Show, where professional riders sore through the air showcasing their amazing skills. You will also find the latest deals from your favourite ski and snowboard destinations across North America, including Lake Louise, Banff and Colorado.

By the time you leave this show, you’ll be counting down the days till the first snowstorm!
