Winner of this Year’s Colorado Governor's Award for Excellence in Exporting on Display at SIA Snow Show

Denver, CO (January 31, 2014) -- Liberty Skis is pleased to announce that it has been selected as winner of the Colorado Governor’s Award for Excellence in Exporting.  Liberty Skis will display this award in their booth #3725 at the SnowSports Industries America / SIA Snow Show, being held at the Colorado Convention Center, which began yesterday and continues through February 2.

The Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) announced Liberty Skis’ award on May 16, 2013, where it was presented in a ceremony at Colorado’s World Trade Day.  The Governor's Award for Excellence in Exporting has been given since 1970 and honors Colorado companies that demonstrate a commitment to international trade.

Liberty Skis (Avon, CO) - Liberty Skis makes high performance skis rooted in functional innovation and respect for the environment. Every material they use and design is done with the ultimate goal of elevating customers' experience on skis in Colorado and around the globe. A great example of functional innovation is their exclusive use of bamboo laminate cores in their skies. Liberty Skis was the first and remains the only ski company to use bamboo in all its skis.

James Satloff, founder and chairman of Liberty Skis, said “we are extremely proud to have won this award, and we thank the State of Colorado for their help in establishing Liberty Skis as one of the state’s premier exporters.”  Liberty Skis CEO and co-founder Daniel Chalfant added, “we welcome visitors and press to see this award which is on display at our booth during the SIA Snow Show.”

World Trade Day is Colorado's premier full-day conference on international trade and is part of World Trade Week, which was declared by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1935. This year's World Trade Day was themed "Plug into the Global Economy - How Technology Impacts Trade" and featured the latest technology tools available to help expand international business opportunities. It also showcased a number of operational and marketing techniques, including improving supply chain through technology, connecting a global workforce, marketing to mobile devices, social media for international business and website search engine optimization.

“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
