Ice Cycle Expo

Ice Cycle ExpoIceman is proud to present Ice Cycle Expo, a consumer outdoor show held in conjunction with the 2011 Iceman Cometh Challenge mountain bike race on Friday, November 4, 2011 at Grand Traverse Resort & Spa.

This year's Ice Cycle Expo will be held in the Governor's Hall along with packet pick-up.

The uniqueness of Ice Cycle Expo is a result of the calendar and that the show occurs on the cusp of the fall/winter season. In addition to bicycles and cycling products, camping equipment, outdoor clothing, car rack systems, and snowshoes will be on display and available for sale.

Last year 45 different sponsors and vendors displayed and/or sold their products over the course of the event weekend! Be sure to check out their booths for swag and the latest product information!

Sales are permitted and encouraged. Sales rep re sen ta tives are encouraged to sell their samples, one of a kinds, closeouts, demos, seconds, and even prototypes that have accumulated in the basement so there will be some wheelin' and dealin' going on!!! Don't miss this once a year buying opportunity!

Iceman Promotions will make a $25 donation to IMBA for each Ice Cycle Expo space sold.

Come and Get It at Mt. Holiday Ski Area!

The Midwest's last remaining nonprofit ski and snowboard hotspot is serving up deliciousness to Iceman riders and their guests to help support the next generation of skiers, snowboarders… and even Iceman riders.

Whether you ride the Iceman or the Niceman, chances are your appetite won't know the difference. That's why Iceman riders are heading to Mt. Holiday Ski Area for good things to eat both pre- and post-race. And did you know that every dollar you spend with Mt. Holiday during Iceman helps support kids in the Grand Traverse region? Our nonprofit ski and snowboard facility has special "skierships" for kids in need.

So come dine hillside in our 1950s-era refurbished lodge with your family and friends! Not only are you doing your body some good with our fresh, homemade meals, you are also supporting the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts.
