The Exhibitor & Brand Directory Search


Women have always been present in snow sports and continue to represent a rapidly growing segment across all categories.
As the decision makers when it comes to activities for the kids and planning family vacations, women influence more than 95% of all household purchase decisions that include your potential buyers. 


Last season, even as most segments were down. Sales of women’s equipment, accessories and apparel were all up. In fact, 1/3 of all snow sports dollars were spent on Women’s/Girl’s specific gear, equaling over a billion dollars. How much was spent in your shop?

Having the latest in women’s gear, accessories and style is a must in today’s market. The styles are ever-changing as is the equipment. Whether it’s ski, snowboard, backcountry, Nordic, or Après, every brand showcases their complete women’s line and full colorways at the SIA Snow Show.

OIWCSIA is excited to partner with the Outdoor Industry Women’s Coalition (OIWC) once again for the 2016 SIA Snow Show.  Attendees are encouraged to visit the OIWC Women’s Lounge located on the show floor to check out examples of how to best merchandise women’s hard and soft goods for your store. More details coming soon.

The lines look great – people are in great spirits and there is a huge women’s presence and exposure to the marketplace at this Show in comparison to others. This is a pretty male-dominated industry but I think more vendors are coming out with more unique women’s products – which is awesome!” Cassandra Medrano, the CLYMB, Portland, OR

"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
