What's New: Stowe Mountain Resort Creates The Stowe Toys Demo Center - To continue its tradition of offering guests the very best vacation experience possible, Stowe Mountain Resort announces the creation of its new Stowe Toys Demo Center.
Located at the base of the Quad Chair, the Stowe Toys Demo Center combines access to ski school representatives and the latest high performance equipment under one roof. The idea is that customers will no longer have to purchase equipment without knowing how it performs on the mountain.
"Our guests will find everything at the Stowe Toys Demo Center," says Director of Marketing and Sales Michael Colbourn. "Alpine skis, telemark skis, snowblades, snowboards, boots-you name it. It's the ultimate one-stop-shop for high performance equipment, and you can schedule lessons there, too."
The Stowe Toys Demo Center features many top ski brands, including Atomic, Dynastar, K2, Olin, Rossignol, Salomon, and Volkl. Guests will find boots by Lange, Nordica, Salomon, and Tecnica, and bindings from Atomic, Marker, Rossignol, and Salomon. There is telemark equipment by Garmont, K2, and Rottefella, as well as helmets from Boeri, Leedom, RED (a Burton Division). The center will even have two-way radios available.
All snowboards, boots, and bindings will be by Burton Snowboards. Guests will be able to rent high performance equipment for demo trials by the hour, ½ day, and full day, with additional days available at a discount.
