Our convenient slope side access allows you to test the results immediately, and come back in for quick adjustments. 

Enter the demo shop directly from the Wildcat Base parking lot and see the largest and best tuned fleet of demo skis in Alta. Our demo program allows you to check out this years best skis from Volkl, Blizzard, Rossignol, Salomon, and Armada. By allowing you to try multiple skis, the demo program is a great option for skiers of all abilities; identify which charicteristics you like in a ski, test out your dream ski before you buy, or simply choose the best ski for that day's conditions. Our expert ski technicians will guide you through every step of the process.
