Now that SIA is all said and done, it’s time for our fourth and final update on the show, which concluded on Sunday in Denver, Colorado, just prior to city drowning itself in sorrow following the Broncos’ merciless defeat in the Superbowl at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks. Wait a second…this is a ski website, and we shouldn’t be talking about football, so here’s a preview of what’s due to hit your local ski shop this Fall in boxes from Arcade, Blizzard, Dalbello, Discrete, Dynastar, Eira, Elan, Fischer, Icelantic, Liberty, Rossignol, Shred and Tomahawk…
Cody Towsend, the founder/owner of Arcade, both of which are so hot right now.
The brand new Parker Belt.
The majority of Arcade’s belts are made of non-metallic materials (which comes in handy while passing through airport security), and stretch to accommodate different waist sizes (which comes in handy while wearing snowpants), and all of them will keep your pants up (which comes in handy when you’re not looking to moon someone or get down with someone)…
The Bodacious, Cochise, Bonafide, Brahma, Latigo, Cochise JR and some Tecnica boots.
The Scout, Kabookie, Bushwacker, Gunsmoke, Peacemaker, Regulator and Spur.

One of the most talked about products at the show, Elan’s junior skis, which won the ISPO Gold Award (the first time a junior ski has ever done so) for its revolutionary design, which includes horizontal grooves that reduce the weight and stifness of the ski, allowing first time skiers to enjoy the sport that much more.
In addition to the skis, Elan’s junior boots also flex in the toe and heel area, allowing them to flex concurrently with the skis, which will allow further comfort and enjoyment amongst younger skiers.
