      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Marmot Mountain Works in Bellevue presents The Annual Alpine Touring/Randonnee and Telemark Ski Gear Demo Night to be held on Tuesday January 3rd 2012 at The Summit at Snoqualmie.


The demo will be held at the Alpental ski area from 4pm until 9pm (Subject to snow conditions). This will most likely be the only event of this kind in our region this winter.


Many of the equipment manufacturers’ representatives will be in attendance with their fleets of demo gear for you to try out. Marmot Mountain Works will also make available the majority of their store's demo gear. A broad assortment of equipment will be available including gear from Dynafit, K2, Black Diamond, Scarpa, Lasportiva, Rossignol, and Garmont. This demo will include both skis and boots to try.


Please bring your own alpine touring/randonnee boots, telemark boots, and/or alpine downhill ski boots/poles and your own skis if you have them in order to maximize your options and enjoyment.


The use of the demo gear will be free of charge, but you will need to purchase your own lift ticket and you will need to bring a driver’s license and a credit card to sign up for the demo.


This demo is open to adult skiers; no kid's size equipment will be available. Please also be aware that if you have a very small or a very big boot size (i.e Mondo size 22 or 32), then there may not be any skis available with bindings that will fit your boots…sorry.


Advance sign-up is required again this year for the ski demo due to increasing interest and attendance at recent events combined with the fixed number of demo skis available. Please indicate if you will be trying A.T. or Telemark equipment when you sign up. We plan on having over 100 pairs of skis available for attendees to try, but all skis will be on a first come / first served basis since this is a free demo. We ask that you please limit your testing to 2 runs per pair of skis in order to allow everyone to have the opportunity to try as many different skis as possible!


In an effort to accommodate more people than in previous years, the demo sign-ups will be split into 2 different session times:


4pm to 6:30pm, or 6pm to 9pm


You will be required to sign up for one session OR the other. People signing up for the 6pm-9pm session may be able to try skis before 6pm if they arrive earlier as long as there are still skis available to try, but do not count on it. People signing up for the 4pm-6:30pm session will need to have all equipment back to the demo area no later than 6:30pm, no exceptions.


This demo is intended for retail customers only. Please, no retail store employees or industry professionals.


Sign-ups may be limited, so don’t wait until the last minute. Sign up now!


For more information and to R.S.V.P., please call Marmot Mountain Works @ 425-453-1515.
