DENVER - The SIA Snow Show is the largest, most concentrated and authentic trade event in the snow sports industry.

It will be the first time globally that the styles, technologies, innovations, culture and energy of snow sports will be presented.

Industry professionals meet to engage in business, networking opportunities, parties, brand events and seminars to feel the true essence of snow sports.

9NEWS Sports Anchor Susie Wargin showed off her immense skills at the SkyTechSport booth. She played on a cutting edge alpine ski and snowboard simulator that allows users to experience the same G-force effects they would in well-carved turns on a real slope is launching in the U.S. Started in Europe and developed by top physicists, applied mathematicians and computer engineers, SkyTechSport's simulators utilize top notch computer sequences, power drives, accurate sensors and a projection system generating a huge virtual image of a 170 square feet running slope to create a fully realistic simulation.

For beginners, SkyTech's simulators can establish solid technique from day one and build confidence in a safe environment. For advanced skiers, it makes it easier to become accustomed to the modern carving technique and keep up their muscle tone, fitness and technique off season or before heading up to the mountain. And for others, it's an exciting, out of the ordinary workout.

Susie also went ski skating, showed off the latest and greatest in outerwear from O'Neill, and spoke to Klaus Obermeyer, the founder of Obermeyer Sports.

The SIA Snow Show runs from Jan. 31 to Feb. 3 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. Find out more here, http://siasnowshow.snowsports.org/default.aspx.
