The Nevado demo team had a fantastic weekend at Granite Gorge and Gunstock!
We kicked off the weekend on Saturday morning at Granite Gorge in Roxbury, New Hampshire. Granite Gorge might be one of the smaller mountains we visit on our demo tour, but there is no shortage of things to do between the park and the ski trails, and our demo was bustling with activity all day long. There is a great local following here and a dedicated staff that make it a great place to ski or ride.
The park was a main draw of the day at Granite Gorge, and our new SP3i snowboards were the hot item. At one point, all of our boards were out and we had a good group of people waiting for them to come in – so we took our boards to the top of the terrain park to give everyone a chance to try them on the fly.
Everyone in the Keene area knows and has seen Granite Gorge’s trademark lime green VW bus around town, which was parked on the snow right in front of our demo.
Sunday, we started the day off with cold temperatures and a bit of wind out on the snow at Gunstock. By the time we were finished setting up the demo, the wind had died down and the sun was starting to peak out. While the rain has hampered snowmaking activities throughout much of southern New Hampshire over the last week, you sure wouldn’t know it at Gunstock – there was a solid base on every trail, and crews were blowing snow pretty much everywhere we looked.
As the day went on, the crowd built, and our skis and snowboards were literally flying off the racks. We also fitted what felt like a record-breaking number of Nutcase helmets.
