Largest Ski and Snowboard Shows in Southeast Arrive in Time for Predicted Record-Shattering Winter

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - August 18, 2010) - Peter Glenn Ski & Sports announces the official start of winter for skiers, snowboarders, outdoor sports enthusiasts and those bracing for another record-shattering weather season with the return of the Fort Lauderdale Ski and Snowboard Show, October 1-3, 2010 and the Atlanta Ski Show, October 22-24, 2010. Combined, the shows represent the largest and oldest ski and snowboard events in the Southeast featuring a one weekend only exclusive merchandise sale, a one-stop shop for discount winter travel packages at leading national resorts, a winter clothing drive and activities for the entire family.

Each show includes more than 10,000 square feet devoted to over $1,000,000 worth of quality winter and outdoor merchandise with savings up to 70%, an exhibitors' area featuring equipment manufacturers, airlines, specialty travel agencies, tour operators and resorts in the United States and Canada. A national partnership with the charity, One Warm Coat, encourages guests to donate warm winter clothing for distribution in the local community. In exchange for a gently worn winter jacket, guests will receive $10 off the purchase of a new winter jacket at the show.

"For anyone planning a ski or snowboard vacation or just enjoying what forecasters predict will be a winter colder than the last, this is a once-a-year opportunity to get a jump on the season with great values, to stretch the dollar and multiply the savings on merchandise and leisure activities," states David Mahoney, Peter Glenn Ski & Sports marketing director.
