The ASJ Roadshow traveled to San Jose on November 7-9 for the second of three Snowbomb Festivals. Despite the beautiful 75 degree weather, many people came into the convention center looking for a fun time and good deals on ski and snowboard passes and equipment. Last winter’s issues of ASJ were on the table next to a stand holding our current issue. In fact, some people grabbed 7 or 8 different issues of ASJ from our booth for one low price of… FREE! The stories in our past issues are still completely relevant, as are the ads.
A climbing wall rose from the convention floor to the ceiling. In Yoda’s Riglet pen, instructors gave snowboarding lessons to little kids. For the adults, as with every Snowbomb Festival, beer and wine tastings were available. People left happy, carrying boards under their arms and lift tickets in their pockets.
Now we’ve just got to get some weather and get some of these resorts opened up. The people are trying everything to make it snow. Did Sunday’s break dance contest help? We’ll find out.
This weekend (November 15-16th) the Roadshow travels on to Snowbomb Sacramento at the Cal Expo. Stop by our booth and say hello.
