Boston Ski and Snowboard Show, Warren Miller and more

The Boston Ski and Snowboard show is being held through Sunday at the Seaport World Trade Center.

This is the place to go for preseason deals on equipment, clothing and ski area specials. The annual gathering of ski and snowboard enthusiasts showcases the who, what, and when of skiing in North America and around the globe.

Look for me on Friday around the show floor. Ticket are only $12 and kids under 12 are free.

If you miss me there I’ll be emceeing the Warren Miller movie showing Sunday night in Duxbury. Go to for your tickets.

When you are there, make sure you check out the new generation of the SkiTips apps series for iPhone and iPad, which will be debuting at this year's Boston Ski & Snowboard Show, with all proceeds going to local charity Christopher's Haven.

The SkiTips concept of self-teaching apps includes a complete course on snowboarding from beginner to expert by Olympic medalist and 36-time World Cup winner Mathieu Bozetto, while the five skiing apps cover every level from first-timers to telemark, off-piste and back-country touring.

The SkiTips team is working with Christopher's Haven to help raise money for this extraordinary Boston institution. All proceeds from sales of any of the SkiTips apps during the show will be donated to the Haven.

United We Ski is a new film by T-bar film and it looks at the community ski areas that still exist in Vermont. United We Ski includes Hard'ack, Northeast Slopes, and Cochran's Ski Area. The film also explores lost ski areas as well as secret ski tows hidden among the sugar-bushes of Vermont.
