Special Guest & Entertainment
Ever wondered what it’s like to be intensive care for SEVEN DAYS on life support? Wow. Only four years ago, Michelle Salt went through just that when she was in a life-threatening motorcycle accident. She broke numerous bones, endured many surgeries, and ended up losing her right leg above the knee. Never one to back down from a challenge, she is now a National team athlete for the Canada Snowboard para-team and became the first ever female Canadian Paralympic Snowboarder at the 2014 Winter Paralympics! Michelle’s story of strength and passion for her sport, even in the face of great adversity, is an inspiration to all of us in the snow sports community.
She was at the 2015 Edmonton Ski & Snowboard Show on Saturday, October 24th and had a wonderful time with you all!
The Edmonton Ski Club Winter Sport Equipment Sale is the best sale on the planet. Okay… maybe the best in Western Canada. Find new-to-you equipment at unbeatable prices – skis, snowboards, helmets, jackets… You name it, we got it! This is also your chance to clear out your closet and potentially make some $$$ on your gently used items.
Burton Riglet Park
Got little ones?! Powder fans were able to get ‘em started young at the 2015 Edmonton Ski & Snowboard Show! The Burton Snowboards Riglet Park made a stop at the Show and was a great way to introduce snowboarding to children ages 3-6. Kids tried out Burton’s revolutionary kids’ products and experienced the Riglet Reel, a specially designed reel attached to the nose of youth snowboards. With the help of the Riglet Reel, instructors towed kids onto features and around obstacles to introduce them to the fun of snowboarding! This helped plenty of kids start weaving around cones and jibbing in no time.
Extra Life Game Zone
At the 2015 Edmonton Ski & Snowboard Show, we were gaming for a cause! We kicked back and relaxed with some of the best old-school and current-gen video games around! Extra Life is for everyone. From Warcraft Warriors to Candy Crushers to Dungeon Masters, Extra Life makes it easy for gamers to help kids by doing what they love. The Extra Life Edmonton team supports The Stollery Children’s Hospital where thousands of children are treated each year, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few. Tons of people stopped by the Extra Life Edmonton Game Zone at the Edmonton Ski & Snowboard Show to do some gaming and find out how you can show some love to children in need!
Are pants cramping your style?? Onesies took the 2015 Edmonton Ski & Snowboard Show by storm on Sunday, October 25th. Snow fans from all over Alberta came dressed up in their favourite crazy animal onesies, warm PJ onesies and ski suits to hang out with their fellow powder-freaks and have a chance to win some awesome prizes, including $50 Visa Gift Cards!
The Sunridge New Skier Orientation Area
The 2015 Edmonton Ski & Snowboard Show boasted all of the things long-time snow-fans have come to know and love, while offering an extra push for those who wish to hit the hills for the first time this winter. The Sunridge New Skier Orientation area allowed guests to speak to professional ski instructors from Sunridge Ski Area to get all the tips, while the large variety of retailers (as well as the Winter Sport Equipment Sale) will allow newbies to fully outfit themselves with all the latest gear.

Needs vary depending on size, nature, and goals for the exhibit. A minimum of 2 staff is recommended. Consider managing incoming traffic as well as interaction between staff and interested visitors.
