124 PAIRS OF SKIS, 35 TESTERS, 4 DAYS & WHAT DO YOU GET?
SKI CANADA MAGAZINE'S 2017 SKI CANADA TEST!
Marmot Basin is proud to host Ski Canada Magazine this week for the 2017 SKI CANADA TEST! The industry's leading ski manufacturers have sent their reps carrying next years best equipment to be tested on the slopes of Marmot Basin over a period of 4 days.
The crew from Ski Canada magazine are joined by ski school staff, race camps and freeride teams as equipment testers. The main staging area is set up just outside the Paradise Chalet at mid-mountain where testers have gear swapped out on a revolving basis and testers can expect to ski up to 15 runs per day. Watch for signage at the top of test runs across the mountain and keep an eye out for the men and women sporting their blue and purple Helly Hansen outerwear ask they put the equipment through it’s paces.
