Back by popular demand is the high energy Bear Mountain Resort Skateboard Vert Ramp ready to thrill the Ski Dazzle® audience this November. The X-Games and World Cup Skate Tour emcee Dave Duncan brings world class skaters & BMX riders to the event, which include national and internationally ranked athletes. This year’s confirmed athletes include: Chris Gentry, Danny Mayer, Sergie Ventura, Josh Borden, Josh Rodriguez, Austin Poynter (the 2012 Vans Combi Pool Amateur champion), Michael Brookman, Lizzie Armanto (#1 vert girl in the world for 2012), Allysha Bergado, Amelia Brodka, the Groms (Justin Rivera, Travis Rivera and Trent Bowman) and BMX pro riders (XGames medalists): Simon Tabron, Ben Snowden and Austin Coleman.

New this year is The Great Ski Dazzle® Slalom Race, which is sponsored by SkyTech Sport. Attendees will have a chance to step onto an Olympic team training machine and into a virtual Slalom race course. SkyTech Sport offers cutting edge European technology and engineering on this machine that actually can control the snow conditions and speed. Skiers and snowboarders can actually experience carving control and the power of the turn. It is just like skiing a Slalom course in “real mountain” time. This is not a video game but a high tech, powerful and unique training tool that is being embraced by both amateur and professional athletes and coaches. The SkyTech Sport machine is featured all four days at the Ski Dazzle® show. Attendees can sign up for a free introductory lesson and can take a timed run to qualify in The Great Ski Dazzle® Slalom Race. The best overall time at the show will win the grand prize of an adult, unrestricted Season Pass to Bear Mountain and Snow Summit (valued at over $649).

Ski Dazzle® special ticket offer: $20 for adults includes a “buy one get one free” Snow Summit/Bear Mountain lift ticket coupon – a $59 value and a $10 Liftopia.com gift card. $5 for children 6-12 and children 6 and under are free. Show times vary: November 15 and 16 (4pm to 11pm), November 17 (11am to 10pm) and November 18 (Noon to 6pm). For more detailed information, please visit www.SkiDazzle.com.
