      Are you a fan of winter sports? Or the complete opposite—the type who always wants to get away from the cold?

      Snow-lover or not, the first annual ROAM Winter Expo is coming to Vancouver this Saturday and Sunday (October 17 and 18) at the Vancouver Convention Centre and will exhibit fun and diverse ways to spend the low-sun months.

      This new expo is a winter style show that features three marketplaces: Adventure, Travel, and Fitness. Each category will showcase different brands and activities to help people make the most out of their winter months.

      Winter sports exhibitors include Whistler Blackcomb, Big White Ski Resort, and more. If you plan on booking a sunny getaway to escape the cold, professionals from Contiki, G-Adventures and other travel services will be giving trip-planning advice.

      There will also be free daily fitness classes, an Oktoberfest craft-beer tent, new and used winter equipment for sale, and a Burton Riglet kid’s zone that will offer free snowboarding lessons for kids.
