New York State’s high-energy gathering of winter and outdoor sports, health, fitness & travel enthusiasts!


The Adirondack Sports & Northeast Ski Expo made a successful return in 2022 with a “great, super organized show!” at a “very nice venue.” We had a “great turnout” of active adults and families – “they all seemed like skiers.”

Exhibitors were “very happy” with the “great flow” and “steady traffic all weekend,” and the “high-quality, interested” crowd. Attendees liked the “perfect mix of vendors,” and everyone appreciated free admission and convenient parking – “a huge plus.”

According to the evaluations, all exhibitors plan to be back. We look forward to doubling the Expo size and interactivity in 2023. As a ski shop owner said, “it’s great to have the show back,” and a ski resort operator added, “great job keeping it alive!”

We look forward to seeing you on November 11-12!
