Attendees to the 2017 SnowShow Thursday were greeted by a thriving new "Trail Gate" section at the entrance that gathered noticeably large crowds through the day.

And deeper into the show floor, the snowboarding section added excitement and an audible buzz to the show, with many industry brand booths filled with buyers and lookers in contrast to other sections of the show.

Several brands showcased new technologies and limited capsule collaborations aimed at their core retailers that also benefit non-profits.

We have photos from Day 1 in our slide show, above, and we'll be back for Day 2 on Friday.
