Snow Sports Participant Report

For the past five seasons, SIA has been working with six other major governing bodies and trade associations in the sports, fitness, outdoor, and leisure industries to form a research partnership- The Physical Activity Council (PAC).

The goal of the partnership is to identify key trends in sports, fitness, and recreation participation in the USA. An overview of participation in 117 different sports and leisure activities in the U.S. is available now! Copies of the Sports, Fitness, and Recreation Participation Overview (2014 edition) can be downloaded from

The result is the Snow Sports Participation Report, a highly detailed account of 117 different activities including the following winter sports:

  • Alpine Skiing
  • Freeskiing
  • Snowshoeing
  • Telemark Skiing
  • Snowboarding
  • Nordic Skiing

Nineteen million Americans were active in snow sports during the 2013/2014 season. Understanding who purchases snow sports products and heads to the slopes and the trails is critical to understanding the snow sports marketplace.

The report includes:

  • Overall headcounts
  • Cross-over activities including 117 sports and leisure activities
  • Geographic density
  • Income, Education, Age
  • Frequency of participation, and more.
