Backcountry Experience

Backcountry Exhibit

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.

“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
