Las Vegas, NV, March, 2000--The entire snow-sports industry got together from March 9-14 in Las Vegas, NV, for the annual SnowSports Industries of America (SIA) trade show to preview new 2001-2002 ski gear and apparel trends.

Approximately 500 companies that make everything from skis to boots to outdoor clothing to sunglasses brought out their new lines of products and innovations for next ski season. Virtually every color of every model from over 1,200 brands in the winter sports industry was on display.

Although closed to the general public, this five-day event was open to retailers, manufacturers, and media representatives who determine what you'll find in your local ski shop next winter, the first U.S. Olympic winter since Lake Placid 1980!
