“We always make the time to attend the Stylesight presentation during the SIA Snow Show.  It is nice to see a trend site taking the time to research trend information that really pertains mostly to the Action Sports market, says Leslie Pyfer, Product Line Manager for Dakine. “I feel like they get better and better every season.”  

2014/15 Trendboard

In this recap Stylesight highlights the overarching trends at SIA for both the skiing and snowboarding markets. Honing in on a directional perspective, this synopsis shines a light at all areas of snowsports, which include hardgoods, softgoods and key accessories. Download here.



Pink shades re-emerge, offering a strong look that’s not too feminine. Not too girly – evoke a powerful message. Tonal combinations are more directional in structured silhouettes. Tints range from dusty rose to magenta.



Tartan and plaid take on a fresh approach across ski and snowboard outerwear. Bold patterns offer a new twist to a design staple. Primary color palettes look right and not too holiday-esque.



Gold and rust tints take the lead across assortments next season. Popular for both ski and snowboard markets. Contrasting tonal combinations look right. Evokes a natural, earthy feel.



Color blocking remains a key design detail across skiing outerwear. This has been a top trend for several seasons. Evolving to new placements and design landscapes. Jewel tones are favored. Zipper teeth take on color blocking as a continuing key trend.



Striking blues take over the gear market. Metallic tones on helmets and goggles. Chalky, matte blues for tech gear and eyewear. Intensely saturated blues fully penetrate products.


“The Show was awesome! Tons of traffic and excitement, which we were really excited about. We’ll be back every year moving forward. We’ve gotten new business from being here, and as a launch year, it’s been absolutely great.”
Tracy Bordwell, Creative and Technical Design, Fate Clothing

"As a snow-sports journalist, I find the SIA Snow Show to be an invaluable resource. There's nowhere else I can survey all of the latest gear and get face time with interesting suppliers, retailers, athletes, and other industry movers all in one place."
Sam Bass, editor-in-chief, Skiing Magazine

“You have everyone in one place, so you can see everything you need and get an idea of where trends are going. It’s a good overview of what’s going on in the industry. Last year we picked up a couple new lines that I wouldn’t have necessarily picked up had I not gone to SIA. The Show gets you psyched.”
Jim Slanetz, Owner, Board Bin, ID

“From our standpoint, our line has gotten larger each year, and the exposure at the Show is huge. There are so many people here and this Show seems to grow every year, it’s really beneficial for our sales reps to be here.”
Carrie Crogan, Trade Show Coordinator, Under Armour
