Leisure Trends Group Releases October Topline Snow Sales Report

Leisure Trends Group (LTG) has released snow sports sales data from August through October 2010. In the report, snow sales appear to be off to the strongest start of the season in over 10 years with nearly $522 million, a 1% increase over last year. On an even more positive note, retailers have indicated that there is far less carry-over products this season than the previous two, meaning far less sales items to drive down revenue. Specialty stores, who are dependent upon product innovations and technological developments will benefit from a lean industry going further into the snow season. The weather seems to be cooperating as well, indicating that the retail sector, long over-due for a productive sales season on the snow side, may just get their holiday wish.
