Free Ski Demos for Skiers 65+ on Tuesdays!

We believe that skiing starts when you learn to walk and never has to end. We hate to hear that when someone reaches their 50th, 60th, or 70th birthday, they buckle their boots, hang up their skis, and call it quits.

We can all get inspired by Klaus Obermeyer, who started the well known and highly respected apparel company that took his last name. Klaus, now 95, skis every day of the season, just as he’s done since he was young. His slogan? “The days you don’t ski,
you don’t get back.”
