SIA Denver- What does next season’s clothing look like?

One of the most interesting part of the SIA show every year is seeing what next years color pallet will look like. Clothing trends are a bit more volatile than ski technology, well I suppose ski graphics change every season also, but with clothing the aesthetics sort of are the product. So what’s next season look like? Let’s take a look.

Trew, why yes, colors are a bit more subdued.

Trew. Notice the blue jacket to the lower left? You'll be seeing a whole lot more of that color way.

FlyLow, I really dig this. I can definitely see myself wearing this next season.

A bit more FlyLow. Note the slightly subdued pallet... and more blue!

Mammut, showing off their airbag pack also.

Mammut Women's freeride ensamble. Lookin' good.

This is a quick look at some of next season’s colors. Things are looking a bit ‘toned down’, a bit more subtle. I like it, what do you think?

Catching up with the Skiershop Team

It has been a busy past few weeks of traveling, snowstorms, and then meltdowns… Through it all the Skiershop Team has been absolutely crushing it and having a blast at the same time. Here’s a quick recap on what has been going down – we at Skiershop couldn’t be prouder of our riders this season!

Our dynamic female duo of Louise Lintilhac and Ashley Maxfield took their skills to the Subaru North American Freeskiing Championships in Snowbird, Utah. Ashley took home 7th place, and unfortunately Weeze took home a black eye. The pictures looked scary, and we are glad that she is ok. Next up is Kirkwood, beginning April 4, 2012.

On the jib side, Tyler Duncan and Will Hibbs recently returned from the Dumont Cup at Sunday River, ME where they both made the semi-finals – yeah boys!

On the local level. Skiershop Riders Noah Ranallo and Colby Vavolotis continued to dominate the Ski The East Freeride Tour. Following the tour’s final stop at Jay Peak, VT, Valvolotis emerged victourous as the tour winner. For Ranallo, the Jay Peak competition marked the second time he won the Cliff Huckstable Big Air Award – Congrats boys!

Skiershop Staff Profile – Mike Thomas – Buyer/Store Manager

The Skiershop.com crew has skiing on the mind 24/7, though in the summer they may put a bike to good use too.  Each member of our staff is committed to getting you stoked on skiing and equipped with the gear to do so.  Here is a little bit of information about the staff so you can see what gear they use and why. – Erme

Mike Thomas Buyer/ Store Manager

Originally From: Auburn NH.

How long have you worked at Skiershop: 8 years.

Why Stowe? I like living in the East, Stowe is by far the best eastern ski area.

Ideal day on the hill? 10” of fresh during a storm cycle, clear skies, no crowds and no wind…or skiing during a big storm.

Gear:

Ski – Nordica Girish

Bindings – Rossignol FKS 180

Boots – Lange RL1

Outerwear – Trew Pow-Funk Jacket and Eagle Pant

Goggles – Scott Fix

Best day ever? My next powder day.

Summertime activity and tool of choice? Mountain Biking – Intense Tracer VP.

Favorite music to listen to while skiing? I like loud fast music but don’t listen to tunes while skiing, I find it distracting without enhancing my enjoyment at all.

The annual SIA trade show has come and gone leaving in its wake an empty convention center and a lot of empty beer cans.  Rather than loading a whole bunch of photos at once, we’re going to put up a few posts on Raise The Bar of vendors that we’re stoked on.  So take a look at some of next year’s gear!

Trew'ed up from the boot up!
