Shay Update: SIA 2010

27 Jan, 2010

The moment has finally arrived and I’ll be making my way down to the SIA Snow Show in Denver, Colorado.  Even though it begins tomorrow at 9am, I’m happy to head down early today to check into my hotel room and get the fun started the right way.  What you’ll see is 6 whirlwind days by 1 person and an incredible experience that I’ll be capturing through this blog.

This will be my second time as a media member for and I’ll be updating the blog as I can and tweeting out during the show so make sure you follow me on for the latest updates from SIA.

After the tradeshow, I’ll immediately head into the mountains for the on-snow portion before coming home.  Soon after you’ll start to see the 10-11 reviews make their way to the site.

Boardistan captured this shot of me last year caught in the moment on the phone, taking photos and laughing about it.  I can’t wait to catch up with Boardistan again at the show!

For the past month I’ve been making appointments and as requested by you, seeing companies that you would like me to check out.  Here’s the list of who I’ll be checking out & meeting with:

    itd be great to hear what POC has to offer for the core boarder, theyve made an obvious presence in our industry but it seems purely buisness oriented… my roomates brother reps them but its solely for the midwest race team kid, their products seem solid but what do they bring to the table for the core boarder, not the golden eagle ski team member?!
