SIA registration deadline coming up

The 2013 Snowsports Industry America (SIA) Snow Show will be held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver on January 31 - Feb 3, 2013.  The On-Snow Show will be held at Winter Park Resort the following two days.

For the 2011 & 2012 On-Snow Show's,  Winter Park Resort Ski + Ride School skibike instructors offered free demo skibike lessons to Snow Show attendees and guests at the resort.  Participants received a 1.5 lesson and a free Type II skibike license if they passed all the skills requirements.

The preregistration deadline for attending SIA is quickly approaching.  Monday January 17, 2013 is the deadline.  After that, registration starts getting pricey.

As stated on the SIA website "This is a trade-only event and is not open to the general public. Attendance is limited to qualified buyers/retailers, SIA members including their sales reps, industry professionals/athletes, and media".  

All I can say is come if you can.  It is quite the event.  Network with manufacturers, professional athletes, and other ski industry people.  Bring your party 'A' game.  There are tons of private parties in Denver and up at Winter Park.  Try to score a ticket for the private Burton party at Lime.  The guys from Never Summer are pretty core too.

If you are a current member of PSIA-AASI, NSAA, or National Ski Patrol you're still welcome to attend.  Pre-registration forms are not available on the SIA website.  Members will need to send an email to Patricia Grenke the Membership/ Registration Coordinator at

I recommend everyone preregister as the fee goes from $20/person to $40/person for the Snow Show and $10/person to $50/person for the On-Snow Show.  The On-Snow fee does include a free bus ride from downtown Denver to Winter Park.

Be sure to stop by the skibike booth and say 'hi' while at Winter Park.  I'l probably be signing people up once again for demo rides.
