Hello friends of RAMP,
It’s that time of year when we are madly finishing all the details on the new product for 15-16. Lots of great new skis, boards and longboards in the pipeline. We just had a preview show at Providence and are leaving for the National Tradeshow, SIA in Denver on Tuesday next week, then to the International Show in Munich the day after that ends. We then have two on snow shows starting then as well at Copper and Stratton where the shop people test next years new products. We also get all the Magazine Tests scheduled there. It’s an exciting and crazy next month with all this compressed into that time and it goes on all over the US. We are in the process of finalizing Reps who are already agents in each territory that now finds RAMP to be exciting new add on business. We are especially attractive with our MLB and NFL and select College licenses.
It feels like with the big increase we got in OEM Business, and what we see happening with shops for next year along with the license potential we suddenly have a lot of business on the table. Now to bring it all in.
I’ve been testing all kinds of final versions of 15-16 and can’t wait for next season where you can give them all a go. Well I can wait I guess, this past weekend I hiked up at Canyons on 9990 in the sidecountry and had some really great pow runs. A hint, we have a brand new model for next season called the 'Shabang'. REALLY fun and versatile.
