Retailers are able to follow up with the Collective’s On-Snow Demos at Pico Mountain in Vermont January 22 and 23 and at Waterville Valley in New Hampshire Feb 11 and 12 These On-Snow Demos offer the opportunity to try the gear first-hand while still being able to complete all preseason ordering prior to the hardgoods deadline.
