The Backcountry Experience exhibit returns to the 2015 SIA Snow Show floor with educational seminars, industry professional appearances and Q & A’s. The exhibit features over 60 companies, visualizing the story of backcountry to both retailers and media, making it truly an interactive experience.
Today’s backcountry comes in many different shapes and sizes, with everything from lift-accessed backcountry to hut/yurt multi-day adventures. The BC Experience focuses on what it takes to outfit consumers with the best in backcountry hardgoods and accessories while delivering the “Must Know” of safety information and protocol. This gives attendees, backcountry buyers and media the chance to see AT products and splitboards, along with beacons, poles, probes, shovels, skins, backpacks and airbags all in one place.
Backcountry Experience showcases:
- Splitboards/Powder specific (boards, boots, bindings)
- Freeride Backcountry (skis, boots, AT bindings)
- Backcountry Touring (skis, boots, bindings, AT, Tele)
- BC Accessories (beacons, poles, skins, ascension skis, ski crampons, probes, shovels, avalanche bags, packs, etc.)
- Snow Safety/Education
Each day ends with a happy hour and safety seminar which focused on that one thing that makes each backcountry excursion a true experience... POWDER! Whether splitboarding, alpine touring, skiing or hiking a boot pack, once you step beyond the boundaries, you are on your own. Knowledge and equipment went hand in hand here. Each day our backcountry experts will share their insight on topics such as: Proper Route Finding, Gear Selection, Beacon Basics, and Avalanche Warning Signs.
2015 SEMINAR TOPICS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON.
