October 1, 2002 Vista CA, if you are a retailer and you ordered light this year you had better consider placing reorders in the next couple of weeks. “Our phone hasn’t stopped ringing since more then a foot of snow fell in the Rockies two weeks ago,” remarked Nidecker’s Courtney Mercier. “We will probably be completely sold out of all of our high end product by November 1st. Last season we sold out of our high end bindings just before Thanksgiving.”

“Shops simply did not place large enough pre-season orders,” commented Will Talbott who is one of Nidecker’s sales associates. “We have been opening new accounts weekly filling gaps in those light pre-season orders. There is just such a positive buzz about the up coming season from all the shops.” Shops like the Colorado Boarder in Crested Butte have already seen snow and are expecting to be snowboarding any day now. “This year is going to be big,” says The Boarder’s co-owner Jacob Paar. As a reflection of this Nidecker’s sales for September are already up 20% from the same period last season.
