    We are expecting the 2019 show to be the craziest yet. @Tricia and I have a packed schedule, and we don't even have everyone booked that we need to see. We need to cram more meetings into less time: last year's show was four day, and this year's is only three; where in the past, we set up hour appointments, this year many of the appointments are only 30 min. No one said it would be easy, but it is what we signed up for. We will try to post pics as soon as we get them for you to drool over. We do have Facebook Live videos scheduled for the first two days, Jan 30 at 12:30 and Jan 31 at 2:00, both Denver time, so set your clocks accordingly. These will be quick walk-throughs while we bounce from booth to booth.

    If you have a specific product you would like to see, post it here and we will do our best to get it added.

    I know you're going to the Kastle booth so that's covered. Can you ask how the profile of the new FX96 relates to past versions? More similar to the recent model or the 2015?

    Saxx Underwear.... :).

    Seriously, psyched for the On the snow testing and from what I have seen, there are several new ski's that look to be exciting. The 99 +/- segment with new shapes/construction looks to be perfect with snow in the forecast for the testing.

    I should have come out! Most Midwest skiing cancelled because it is "too cold".

    ^ you should have come out. If what I saw last night is true, Denver might be having Chamber of Commerce days Fri and Sat. Might hit 60 degrees.

    Are you tagging on any post show ski days? We are looking at an extended road trip and that might influence direction.

    With the exception of Volkl I'm really liking a lot of the topsheets across brands.

    I'm trying to figure out who decided their toddler's "art" should be featured on skis.

    Well, you know what they say in the car business. There's an ass for every seat.

    Unless I missed something, I didn't see the new men's Kastle FX series. Hope that you might be able to include it on tomorrow's broadcast or get a still shot of them.

    Me too. Skiing is a stupid sport, might as well have whimsical topsheets on the skis.
