2015 SIA Summer Snowdown – New York City Media Showroom

Thursday, July 23, 2015
Pillars 38
518 W. 38th Street
New York, NY

The SIA Summer Snowdown is an exclusive media-only preview of the latest in winter style, accessories and gear from a selection of the snow sports industry’s leading brands. SIA invites New York City-based writers, producers and editors to get an up-close look at the apparel and gear that will be on the mountain and in the streets for the 2015.16 winter season. It is the best one-stop venue for media to meet the brands behind the design innovations and learn about the latest snow sports innovations in preparation for their winter stories. In years past, the Snowdown has resulted in national coverage for SIA members that would require weeks of desk-side appointments in New York City to duplicate.

“With a unique product like ours, it’s really helpful for people to touch and feel our ski boots to see what makes them so special. The quality of the media and their reception to our product was exceptional – we’ll be back next year.” Jennifer Hanson, Apex Sports Group

“This is our first year here, and we’re really excited about the reception we’ve gotten from the media side. We’d like to raise our profile in front of the types of outlets that are here – the active magazines, the more mainstream, non-endemic publications, so this was a perfect opportunity. It’s been a big success for us.” Andy Miller, Armada Skis
