Ski numbers: Randonee/AT is fastest growing sector

Lou Dawson combed through the Snowsports Industry of Ameraica numbers on his blog,, and found this interesting tidbit on the ski industry. We've been talking about the growth in backcountry for years. This suggests it's true:
“RANDONNEE/AT EQUIPMENT SHOWING SMALL GROWTH Nordic ski equipment sales decreased 26% in dollars this season over last. Nordic skis fell 30% in dollars while Nordic boot dollars decreased 25%. Telemark ski equipment sales fell 31% in dollars.While still a tiny category, randonee/AT equipment dollar sales are up 8% over last season.”
