The SkiFever and Snowboard Show comes to Seattle Oct. 15-17. Those looking for new gear, clothing, and accessories may have a better chance than ever to find a good deal.

The Seattle SkiFever show has changed to become a multi-retailer show. "For the last 40 years, it's been one shop," owner-producer Dan Schindler told "Now, it's open to all of Seattle's best retailers, making the buying opportunity much greater than in the past."

Sturtevant's, Ski Mart, Seattle Ski and Snowboard, Evo Gear, Sports Authority, Mountain to Sound, Grass Roots Outdoor, Zumiez, Kitsap Sports, and Helly Hansen are a few of the retailers bringing gear to the show. Discounts are expected to run up to 70 percent on ski and snowboard equipment. Ski reps will have the latest gear, and Ski Mart holds ski and snowboard swap, the biggest and oldest source of used equipment in the state.

Admission at the door costs $12 for adults and $3 for juniors 6-12 years old. Kids younger than six get in free. Those who register online can get a coupon for $2 off admission for adults and free entrance for juniors.

Admission includes two-for-one lift tickets. The tickets are valid at Mission Ridge, The Summit at Snoqualmie, Mt. Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park, White Pass, Crystal Mountain, 49 Degrees North Mountain Resort, Stevens Pass, and Ski Bluewood. Blackout dates and restrictions may apply.

Entertainment includes the new Poor Boys film Revolver, a rail jam, and the Jumbo Shrimp Sk8 contest. The show runs 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday at the Washington State Convention Center.
