The CXC 3D Flex Mat and Salomon Flex Table will be on hand to help show you how pressure is being distributed to the snow under your skis. Knowledgeable industry partners will be able to answer any specific questions you have, and our CXC TEAM VERTICAL LIMIT athletes and coaches will be around to answer questions and sign autographs.

"SUPER FIT" is a weekend sale program filled with seminars, presentations and store specials. Get your equipment fit by CXC Team Vertical Limit professional athletes and coaches using state of the art 3D ski pressure mat. Bring your old skis to test if they have a good fit for you, and get an independent opinion.


Salomon CXC SuperFit Schedule
Get Ski Specific Workout and Testing  with:
Skiers have had limited options for controlled performance testing: not everyone has access to a rollerski treadmill, rollerskis vary significantly in speed, and running time trials aren't especially ski-specific.

To help address this need, Concept2 has developed a web-based testing series using the SkiErg. The SkiErg Performance Series offers coaches and athletes a new tool for evaluating the effectiveness of their training. The SkiErg, with its accurate Performance Monitor (PM), offers a testing tool that is ski-specific, controlled and comparable. The Performance Monitor allows scores to be compared from one machine to another, at any altitude, in any conditions, because it self-calibrates.
