On Friday Jan 11th, Trapper is holding an open house at its factory from 5-10pm. There will be food, beer, and music, so you should definitely come by and meet us all. Some brands will also display demo boards outside for you to take out the next day. If you didn’t buy the entry ticket for the Saturday night show through the website, we will also be selling them at Trapper, at the Rec Centre, and at local establishments.
Saturday Jan 12th is the big night at the Rec centre. There will be a tradeshow with an abundance of brands represented as of 4:30pm, including free splitboard demo’s. The silent auction and raffle ticket sale will be set up from 5pm until 9pm after which the raffle will take place. During the entire evening – between 6:30pm and 9pm – free presentations will be held by experienced industry people. They will be sharing their stories, from avalanche experiences and weather tendencies to splitboard and mountaineering exploitations.
