Invaluable and direct access to winter outdoor enthusiasts and their insights, habits, and trends

The key ingredient in any successful winter outdoor business is consumers. Actionable consumer insights and increasing winter participation are essential to growing your business. SIA is leading the charge on bridging the gap between its members and consumers in two fundamental ways:

  • (i) SIA surveys thousands of active winter enthusiasts, in order to provide valuable and meaningful insights into consumer habits, trends and perspectives. These in-depth reports are available to members twice a year; and
  • (ii) SIA is investing significant resources into the creation of a year-round, online and in-person winter outdoor community called Snowbound Festivals. An inclusive destination for both core and new winter enthusiasts from across the country to connect with brands and retailers, to learn more about gear and how to buy, and to engage in the winter outdoor lifestyle and culture.

SIA Consumer Insights Reports


Understanding the consumer is key to your business. SIA is launching two critical surveys in the 2020-21 winter season, providing the industry with a deeper look at consumer insights, trends and habits.

The first report, “The Impacts of COVID-19 on Snowsports Consumer Trends and Insights", is now available!
