SIA 2013

SIA 2013 has just drawn to a close and it was a FANTASTIC show for Function.  We launched a mountain of new products at SIA including backpacks, gear bags and eyewear.  While most of them will not be for sale until next season we will give you all some sneak peaks on our blog in the coming days.

Stay Tuned.


As Glenn and I have been on a near continuos road trip in the US setting up new retail accounts for next ski season I wanted to give a brief update on the progress:

It’s going well.

Colorado: Front Range, Summit County, Fairplay, Salida, Poncha Springs, Monarch Mtn., Gunnison, Crested Butte, Telluride, Durango

Michigan: Auburn Hills

New Mexico: Taos, Taos Ski Valley, Red River Angel Fire

Vermont: Stowe

New York: Lake Placid

In the next 2 weeks we have meetings with retailers in Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and California.  Looking forward to posting all the individual shop locations on the Function map once the dust settles!


Function just had it’s first international show in Japan!  Interstyle is a hybrid show focusing on Action sports, fashion and lifestyle.   As you can see from the below images Japans pro-snowboarding community is psyched about the 01 carry system!


Thanks to Greg Elliott for the great spot on Vail TV8!

This will begin airing on TV8 Vail next week and will be in rotation for about a year.  You can also check it out it on their YouTube channel here:


So Glenn and I headed out for a photo shoot today in not exactly ideal conditions.  The light quality was beautiful but the temp was 2 with windchill around -12.  Did I mention it was snowing?


Our first products have pre-launched at Portland’s WWSRA snow show.

Our NW rep Tim Eberly has our products featured in his booth alongside the entire Never Summer board line-up.  Tim’s word is the NW buyers are all over the new product as there is no shortage of side-country hiking in his territory.

Stop over and give Tim a high-5 if you are in Portland between now and Thursday!
