Calling all Okemo Competition Center and OMS alpine athletes! The Annual Okemo Fit Day (featuring alpine ski and *new this year* snowboard equipment) is scheduled for Sunday, September 29th from 9 am - 1 pm on the Okemo Mountain School Front Lawn at 53 Main St in Ludlow (rain location: Jackson Gore Ice House). Though the event goes until 1 pm, please plan to arrive no later than 12 pm so that you have adequate time to browse equipment - the vendors will be packed up by 1 pm. All of the latest equipment will be there for you and your athlete to take a look at for the upcoming winter. Skis/snowboards will be there in all sizes to determine the right length and boots will be available in a range of sizes to try on. Remember to bring ski/snowboard socks for your athlete! There also will be some poles, goggles, and helmets as well. Please note that you will not place orders directly with the race reps for each brand, but with a local shop that carries the brand you want. Local shops will be at Fit Day to process orders should you wish to place them at that time. Remember that our local Ludlow shops will honor race pricing on alpine ski racing equipment for all Okemo athletes who are USSA members. Race pricing represents a significant savings over regular retail. While there will be largely alpine ski equipment at Fit Day, Freestyle Ski athletes will be able to check out boots and can also take the opportunity to talk with shops about freestyle or freeride skis for this season. ****New this year, Darkside will be attending and snowboard coaches will be available to help snowboard athletes select the right gear for the upcoming season. Snowboard athletes should plan to attend. Not only is Fit Day a great chance to figure out gear before the start of the season, it is also a fun day to see all of your Okemo and OMS friends!
We are also excited to announce that, in conjunction with Fit Day and as a part of a national effort, OMS is hosting a "Spin-a-thon" to raise awareness and funds for the Kelly Brush Foundation (KBF) and, specifically, the Stop the Bleed initiative. Click HERE to learn more and get involved!
