Snow Sports Participation Report
For the past three 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 very accurately identify key trends in sports, fitness, and recreation participation in the U.S. The goal of the partnership is to identify key trends in sports, fitness, and recreation participation in the USA.
