UPHILL/DOWNHILL CHALLENGE

Bringing Together the Weak, Strong and the Thirsty...

Uphill/Downhill Challenge Details

FEBRUARY 2, 2015 | COPPER MOUNTAIN RESORT, CO

The Demo’s annual Uphill/Downhill Challenge once again gathered “the weak, strong and the thirsty” to help raise funds for The American Institute of Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE). Teams competed against their own best times and COSMIC levels.

In the COSMIC level, First Place Men’s was Marshall Thompson and Women’s was Sari Anderson. For the Industry level, First Place Women’s was Annelise Loevlie and Men’s was Mike Genaver. First place in the Team level was Dynafit’s “Colorado Edibles,” Second place went to La Sportiva’s “Uno,” and Third went to Team Mowhawk.

“Race was fantastic! Brutal climb in the beginning – the descent through the trees was heinous - so awesome though! Overall, super fun and so glad to be here again.” – Marshall Thompson, US Ski Mountaineering Team.

“I took it more like a ski tour, not a race – I enjoyed it a lot!”  -
 Kimberly Plake, Elan

$1,200 was raised for AIARE. Thanks to all who participated.

“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
