What's new in the ski industry?
 We will discuss how manufacturers are changing/adapting to new weather, grooming, ski techniques and overall use of ski equipment.  While there has been quite a few new products in recent years there have also been quite a lot that has remained the same. They are even trying to bring back some stuff from the past and are calling it new. We'll try to sort is all out!!
