Part 2 - Our longest VLOG yet!

If you missed it, watch part 1 at www.skishaggys.com/blogs/news/vlog-012-east-coast-demo-tour-part-1

Our inaugural East Coast Demo Tour continued into 2020 with a day of freeskiing at Sunday River in Bethel Maine. We met up with ski patrollers and longtime Shaggy's customer/pro patroller Jay Stephansky. Jay showed us around the peaks of Sunday River and together with Ambassador Nick Ford, found everything from soft bumps, to ice and crud.

From Sunday River, we traveled to Wildcat Mountain, NH for a day of ski demos and awesome views of Mount Washington and Tuckerman Ravine.

Our next stop was Mad River Glen, VT for a demo day and to check out their iconic single seat chairlift. Ambassador Tucker White drove down from Burlington for the day and showed us around the mountain. The day was warm and slushy down below but cold and snow filled at the peak. Mad River Glen lived up to its reputation as a ski area for hardcore skiers!

The last stop of our tour brought us to Magic Mountain, VT for our final demo in the East. We thought we had beat the rain the whole trip, but the last day finally caught us and we set up our demo tents in the rain and the true skiers still showed up! We sent out quite a few more demo skis than we expected and had a great time recounting the rest of the trip!

Thanks to all the resorts for hosting us and everyone who came out to try skis!

So bummed I wasn’t closer to one of your stops!! Went to Bretton Woods on 12/30 and was met with hail and ice – those conditions looked mint in comparison! I’ll have to find a way to meet up with your Rep this season – are you guys going to come to any of the expos out here (Boston) this year?
