Breaking News: skis, snowboards, and snow gear could be in short supply this season

Posted By: Zeke Piestrup on January 14, 2010 4:05 pm

The new must-haves of the ski & snowboard world may be hard to find by the end of January.  According to SIA (the Snowsports Industry Association), rockered snowboards, mega fat skis, shell & insulated parkas, and helmets all may be scarce very soon.  Even though there has been no drop-off in sales compared to last year, inventories this season are lower because of the credit crunch.

The demand for rockered skis and boards, and also the newer, fatter skis may very well exceed supply.  Sales indicators for December, a month that traditionally accounts for 30% of snow sales, have been really strong.

If you have your eyes on joining the rocker revolution, or picking up that new parka, you might want to act…  and using it here is not an advertisers cliche, but truth…  “before it’s too late!”
