Snow Days

By Julia Beizer

It certainly doesn't feel like it yet, but ski season is just around the corner. This weekend's National Ski and Snowboard Expo offers almost everything you need to get geared up for the season, as well as a few perks (can you say free lift tickets?).

Ski buffs would be wise to visit Dulles Expo Center on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Each day, the first 500 ticket-buyers will receive free lift tickets to regional resorts. On top of that, the $10 admission fee includes a year's subscription to a ski or snowboarding magazine and a ticket to one of the weekend's several screenings of Warren Miller's new film "Higher Ground." Each person who sees this ski action flick also receives a free lift ticket good for one day at Ski Liberty, Ski Roundtop or Whitetail.

Interactive events at the Expo include virtual reality ski and snowboarding games, a snowshoe park where beginners can try out the sport and a Saturday Rail Jam where skiers and snowboarders can sign-up to participate in a stunt competition for cash prizes.

For those eager to ski regionally this winter, the event provides your last chance to pick up Ski Liberty, Ski Roundtop and Whitetail advantage cards or season passes at the pre-season discounted rate.
