Shop the latest and greatest in equipment, fashion and destinations; win dozens of prizes; and check out the Craft Beer Garden and the Hannaford Family Fun Zone.

It is going to be a big year for this event, as dozens of vendors will be on hand with industry-leading equipment and early season discounts.

Some of this year’s top vendors include Alpin Haus, The North Face, Obermeyer, Karbon, Patagonia, Under Armour, Spyder, K2, Atomic, Tecnica, and many, many more!
