Climate change, ecology, backcountry responsibility, the future of the ski industry. These topics and sentiments were at the forefront of the just concluded 2015 Snowsports Industries America (SIA) Trade Show in Denver.
It used to be that the toughest hurdle to finding the perfect helmet was fit. Gauging from what’s on display at the huge Snow Industries America (SIA) trade show in Denver, tomorrow’s helmets will be getting even more complex as safety awareness in the backcountry (and freeride) country gets respect.
I wander the halls of the Colorado Convention Center aimlessly wondering where do I start? I’ve attended the Snowsports Industries of America show three times in Denver and countless other times when it was in Las Vegas. but for the first time in, I think, forever, we both (the Show and I) have lost focus.
