Quotes from the Snow

  • “The Show has really helped with our softgoods; seeing all of the glove lines in person is key. I think it is probably one of the most important things to be educated in the gear.”
    Josh Bremer, Glacier Ski Shop, Glacier, WA
  • “Our company mainly does goggles, so I’m specifically here at the Show scoping out the latest in goggles and tech. There’s so many color options and new styles with amazing technology.”
    Erin O’Fallon, Sport Rx, San Diego, CA
  • “The placement of the accessories zone is amazing! We haven't been able to keep the new HD camera goggles in the booth for more than a minute!”
    Mike Lewis, Digital Marketing Manager, Zeal Optics
  • “After suppliers explain the new tech at the Show, we can see if it works in real-life applications.”
    John Agnew, The Boarding Haus, Durango, CO
  • “Where else can you have hundreds, if not thousands, of your favorite people in a single building?”
    Robert Yturri, SVP of Global Sales, Product and Brand Management, Obermeyer
  • “As far as the real trend I’d say bright and fun colors. Also the melding of function with fashion. Socks can’t be seen, but it makes you feel good that you have them on your feet.”
    Ric Cabot, President and CEO, Darn Tough Vermont
  • “I know that as a ski-inspired accessories brand, we can’t grow without the growth of the snow sports industry. That camaraderie is what makes this industry special - something I learned from coming to SIA”
    Corinne Prevot, Founder & Owner, SKIDA

"The SIA Snow Show is the best time of the year! You get to see all the new technology coming out, you get to see all the sales reps you have relationships with, and then right around the corner you get to test everything out at the On-Snow Demo at Copper." Katy Graul, Ski Brokers, Fraser, CO
"For me, the Show is so much more than just a product presentation, it's a true breeding ground for ideas and inspiration. The forums, the marketing information, and the opportunities for retailers like me to network with each other has become a major feature for me." Teddy Schiavoni, Summit Ski Shop, Framingham, MA
"It's the place to go to see as many manufacturing companies as you can see under one roof at one time. It’s the latest and greatest of everything that’s going to be coming through the stores in the next six to eight months. I think people do a disservice to themselves by not going." Susan Woody, sales rep, Turtle Fur
"This Show is so important because it's the preview for what’s to come; it's the big picture. You can talk to the people that are in sales, product development, we can tell you plans for next year as well as help retailers with their buy so they become informed and make better decisions for their business." Ryan Green, Nordic Division Manager, Rossignol
"From an international perspective, I can see that the whole US snow sports industry is truly a community. Everybody's here and you can see that it's a family." Sigi Rumphuber, Product Designer/Engineer, G3
"This whole business is based on relationships, so if you don’t get that face to face time it's difficult to continue those relationships or build new ones. And of course we have to be at the Show because it gives a chance for everyone to see the full line, and to talk about any problems or potential opportunities." Josh Roberts, VP, Nitro Snowboards
