It's steadily gotten worse over the last 10 years. I use to love going, I would go the first night and then Sunday (Better deals). The last two years have been the worst. But for a first timer, you'll love it.

i went fri night. a bunch of people but all vendors with the same clothing..and nothing was a deal.. always like to check the stuff out. i was going to buy a jacket and some klim boots. i could get the boots 50 bucks cheaper at nelsons and they did not have and new scott or slednecks jackets there.

there was a booth with 2 smoking hot chicks wearing just about nothing, handing out calenders...that was worth the trip..

yep those are the ones..189.00 at nelsons and i get 20% off next week when i pick my new sled up. so going to take those home also.( they wanted 210 at the show) was thinking about the hmk pro boa but they are just a little stiff for my liking.i was sold on the new motofist boots until i saw them in person..looks like a thin hunting boot with no ankle support. so those were out. really want the new sledneck signiture burandt or the defender jacket, but they are on backorder still.. so waiting to find one of them.

when you do your first ride up north, let me know and i will see if we can get a ride in..we just made reservations for xmas and new years week yesterday.

i talked my buddy into getting a switchback assault also, so we both will be ready to ride all winter.

I ended up getting a Castle X Switch "Scratch" jacket, Castle X Fuel Pant with suspenders, and Arctiva Mech 4 gloves (pretty sweet gloves!) for $403.

I was finding the jacket for $219 and the pants for $179 on ebay. So I'm looking at it as I got the gloves and suspender for free so I was happy.

I was trying to find a Go Pro camera for a good deal but I only found one vendor that had them and they were asking more than I could buy them just about anywhere else.
