Question Northeast Demo dates?

Hey,

Does anyone know how to find out about demo tours in the Northeast (NJ/NY/PA/etc...)? I'd really like to demo some Gnu boards, and maybe a few others. I've never demoed a board at a resort before and just wanted to know where I can find that information. Thanks

I am also interested in this and was going to ask the mods to make a sticky. A month or so ago someone said NS is doing a demo at Hunter 12/4-12/5 but I don't see that on the calendar on their site. THat is all I have heard of so far.

how do these demos work? do they have like one board or so to try out and u wait in line just to go down a bunny hill or something?
or do u sign one out and ride it for the day etc etc?

Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless

They usually give it to you for an hour or two, sometimes full day. Depends on company / time / place.

Depends on the place. Demo centers frequently do it like rentals and shows are usually free.

I think the demo shows are usually free and you can check certain websites to see if they're holding any demos at any resorts. I know on the NS website, they have a link for demos and a list of when you can demo them. There's a demo at Whitetail, PA if you wanted to check that out.
