ON-SNOW DEMO/SKI-RIDE FEST

Quotes from the Snow

  • “To get two days in Colorado, where I don’t have to answer phones and where I can be the customer – that’s a real treat.”
    John Wright, Trollhaugen Ski & Board Shop, Dresser, WI
  • “On-Snow is critical to our business. If you don’t take the time to get on the equipment, you’ll miss something. Proof is on the snow.”
    Scott Ford, Buyer, Cole Sport, Park City, UT
  • “When there is an opportunity to showcase our new gear and go ride with accounts that I don’t ride with often, it’s just awesome.”
    Dan Sullivan, Director of Sales, Rome Snowboards
  • The On-Snow is where research and development culminates and begins anew”
    Dean Cummings, Owner, H2O Outdoor Gear
  • “There is no regional demo that happens with the depth of product that is available at Copper – every deck, every binding and plenty of sizes.”
    Johan Malkoski, Sales Manager, C3
  • “Going out and testing product is a good way to back up what suppliers tell us. It’s really important to believe in what you’re selling.”
    John Agnew, The Boarding Haus, Durango, CO
  • “There is more stuff to see at the On-Snow Demo plus the snow conditions are different. If I just demo the products in the East all the time, I won’t know how it works in softer snow.”
    Jeff Proctor, Proctor Ski and Snowboard, Nashua, NH
  • “Copper is phenomenal! The lines are short so you can get in a lot of runs and having all of the amenities close to the Demo is really good.”
    Jon Cook, Ski Prophet
  • “I love how the On-Snow Demo and Nordic Demo are together. I’m totally into it. It is so nice to have it at Copper!”
    Spike Clayton, Skirack, Burlington VT
  • “The terrain was great for testing, a few hills, some flats. It was really great to be able to compare so much equipment. Definitely worth coming.”
    Adam Jonson, Pioneer Ski and Board

The On-Snow Demo/Ski-Ride Fest & Nordic Demo, Copper Mountain Resort

For its inaugural year at Copper Mountain, the SIA On-Snow Demo/Ski-Ride Fest hosted a record number of attendees at its new location. Nearly 120 brands exhibited at the Demo, offering hundreds of 2014/15 skis, snowboards, boots, poles, helmets and accessories for buyers and media to compare side-by-side. Getting out on the snow is something the industry always looks forward to after wrapping up the SIA Snow Show at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.

The On-Snow Demo, held in conjunction with the Western Winter Sports Representatives Association (WWSRA) Rocky Mountain Demo, enjoyed ideal conditions and terrain at Copper Mountain with over 200 inches of snow this season and about 35 inches of new snow in the past week.

In conjunction with Cross Country Ski Areas Association (CCSAA), the Nordic Demo, located in Copper’s East Village and featured a 5K-loop and well-groomed park for testing. Included with the Nordic Demo were seminars, roundtables and plenty of snow! Products featured: cross country skis, snowshoes, poles, wax, and accessories.

“The terrain was great for testing, a few hills, some flats. It was really great to be able to compare so much equipment side-by-side. Definitely worth coming.” - Adam Jonson, Pioneer Mountaineering

Copper Mountain, only 74 miles west of downtown Denver, is home to the U.S. Ski Team Speed Center, the only full-length downhill early-season training facility in the world. It also features Woodward at Copper, the newly renovated indoor/outdoor year-round action sport training facility. Copper Mountain’s award-winning, naturally divided trail network provided the ultimate environment for testing the latest gear and on-snow technologies. The village bars and restaurants were great gathering spots for the entire industry – all in one place!
