The Bay Area Ski and Snowboard Show, a one-stop shopping experience for everything winter-oriented, is dropping in on the San Jose McEnery Convention Center Nov. 9-11. Besides the usual booths and exhibits featuring the latest gear from manufacturers and the latest poop from winter mountain resorts, the show will feature a million-dollar equipment sale, a mini-film fest, and such activities as a climbing wall and the ever-popular tire-chain installing contest.
Show hours are 3-10 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $15 for adults, $3 for kids 6-11, and free for children under 6. (Adult admission gets you a voucher toward a restricted lift ticket at Alpine Meadows, Bear Valley, Diamond Peak, Dodge Ridge, Heavenly, Homewood, Kirkwood, Mt. Rose, Northstar, Sierra-at-Tahoe, or Sierra Summit.)
