Re-run. MMM is also cancelled for today, January 9th.

Thank you to Mother Nature for lots of much needed precipitation. This is not the day to be traveling on Northwoods, so we'll try again for a return to in person MMM for February.

In the meantime, we encourage you to watch a timely past program on Alpine Ski Binding Technology: Past, Present, and Future.  It was a popular panel presentation.

Next month's program will likely be snow technology related and also follow the popular panel program format.

Happy New Year! And see you next month!

MMM is cancelled for tomorrow, December 12th.

We were excited to return to our regular in-person speaker events this month following our summer of networking, as well as the recent successful Pitch Camp and Showcase; however, we feel it's best not to be gathered in a small space with flu and COVID on the rise right before the holidays.

Thanks to everyone for your amazing support in 2022!

Enjoy the snow, stay tuned for what's to come in 2023, and we'll see you in the new year! 🎊
