Snowsports Industries America (SIA), the preeminent organization representing the winter outdoor industry, is delighted to announce the launch of its eagerly anticipated Summit Series. This innovative event series signals a much anticipated return to face-to-face gatherings and the desire to come together to tackle some of the most pressing issues facing the industry.
