Windy City Ski and Snowboard Show gets Chicagoans ready to ski

Are you the kind of person that drops a tear with every leaf that falls on the ground in October because you know that those leaves are the only thing between you and old man winter?

I used to feel that way and fretted with each shortening day as the calendar moved toward December, January, and February. Then I embraced first cross-country skiing and then downhill skiing, and I fell in love with winter.

A good way to begin this courtship with winter is by attending the Windy City Ski and Snowboard Show this weekend in Chicago suburub, Schaumburg, Illinois. The event lasts three days between October 25, 26, and 27, which is this Friday through Sunday. Instead of sitting around and dreading winter, meet it head on these weekend.

The event features exhibits from ski manufacturers, ski resorts, and ski clubs. This way you can find out about gear to ski, where to ski, and who to ski with. The Windy City Ski and Snowboard Show has you covered on all fronts to get you out on the slopes this winter.

The biggest names in ski manufacturing will be in attendance including Fischer, Atomic, Burton, and Salomon. They will have skis on hand at discounted prices, so you might walk out with a brand new pair of skis, boots, and/or poles.

After you have your gear then you will need to know where to go. Exhibitors include local places like Wilmot Mountain and Cascade Mountain in Wisconsin to more exotic ski locations like Vail, Taos, and Telluride out west. You can talk to representatives from these places and learn the scoop on lift tickets and resort pricing.

If you want to make skiing social, then check out the many clubs in attendance. It is always fun to meet with like minded people who enjoy the same adventure as you.

The event takes place at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Convention Center. Price of admission is only $12.00 which includes free parking. See you there.
