Last week, Stratton Ski Resort hosted the annual NESR/EWSRA On-Snow Demo in which sales reps from the biggest ski companies give New England based ski shops (such as SkiEssentials) an opportunity to try out next year’s gear. This event is always a blast and this year was no different as the atmosphere that results from the convergence of hundreds of ski industry types and new gear is always amazing.This year, we managed to subdue our excitement long enough to snap a bunch of photos, giving you the opportunity to check out some of the new graphics and ski designs for next year.
