I'm spending this week covering the SIA Snow Show—THE ski industry trade show in Denver, Colo., and as day one winds to a close, I've already learned a lot.
It's cool to be here for the sake of realizing how much of a business skiing is to our fair state. I love skiing for the adrenaline, fresh air, and weightlessness it affords me. A few days here at the show, though, and I'm grateful to the sport for the employment it provides. Yes, that makes me sound old, but it's true. You read too many prognoses of the stagnation of skiing. If this show's any indication, the future is looking bright.
