Europe Remains a Prominent Region in the Market

For years, Europe has been the world's premier destination for skiers with resorts dotted across the Alps and Pyrenees gaining excellent reputations. The rest of the world has turned the heat up on Europe, however, and these days, the U.S. has the most skier visits of any single country per season. The most suitable skiing conditions are found in North America and the northern parts of Europe and Asia-Pacific. Few of the major countries engaged in organizing in skiing as a sport are the United States, Canada, Austria, Japan, Switzerland, Canada, and Germany. Thus, there is a potential demand for ski gear and equipment in these countries. The demand for ski equipment is likely to boom in the Asia-Pacific region as China will be hosting the upcoming Winter Olympics in 2022.
