This week the Snowsports Industries of America (SIA) Snow Show is coming to the Colorado Convention Center, where all the major ski and snowboard companies will show off their latest innovations for the 2011/2012 winter season. Here's one we'd like to see on the showroom floor: The one-off Signal Snowboards x Skullcandy Boombox, part of the Signal factory's ongoing Every Third Thursday project, making your iPod headphones a thing of the past with an 80s flashback sound system built right into the board.
We'll be posting dispatches from the SIA show later in the week (trust us, there will be far kookier "innovations" on display) but couldn't resist sharing this video first, via Boardistan.com:
