2012 US Rep of the Year

Rockies (WY/ UT/ CO/ NM/ TX)

Nick Vigos

I was lucky enough to be born into the ski industry.  My father was the director of the ski school at Brighton and then later Park City.  My mother was a buyer and has worked for many Specialty Retailers through out my life.  Growing up I was either on the hill skiing or working in a shop. In High School I started working retail and later became one of the buyers for a local Specialty shop, The Sports Den.

While working there I was hired to be the Tech Rep for Rossignol. After two years of being a tech rep I graduated from Westminster College and was at the proverbial fork in the road. I had a job offer to go to Africa and work for a mining company or I was approached by my predecessor Jim “Cowboy” Mchough to start working for Dalbello Sports selling Blizzard skis in the Northwest and the Intermountain. 

After two years I became an Independent rep and took over the Intermountain territory for Dalbello Sports.  In the past 4 years I have added Ryan Davenport to my agency.  We currently represent Dalbello, Under Armour, Giro, Sun Valley Ski Tools, Ion, Select, Master fit, GVS and Asterisk. I live in Sandy, Utah with my wife Mary and my 5 year old, Cash.


I want to thank my retailers for nominating me.  I am honored to receive this award but feel that I could not have done this without the help of my partner, Ryan Davenport. I want to thank the brands we represent for the support and being great business partners. I have been lucky enough to be involved with great companies and great people that all have a common goal. I also want to thank all of my customers that have been so loyal and supportive to me through out the years. It has been a collaborative effort, without this support I would not have been able to achieve this award.

"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
