Previously known as the Boston Ski & Snow Show and rebranded under new event organiser Raccoon Events in partnership with the SIA, Snowbound Expo is set to return November 18-20, 2022 at the Boston Hynes Convention Center.

Bode Miller, world renown Olympic American, World Championship gold medalist, and two-time overall World Cup champion is the most successful male Alpine Skier of all time. He will join an impressive line-up of famous faces set to share their career stories, adventures and skills across two stages including North Face rock climber & American mountaineer Conrad Anker, pioneer of extreme skiing, Dan Egan, athlete and storyteller Dani Reyes Acosta, Disability Access Strategist and athlete, Vasu Sojitra and more to be confirmed before being added to the full speaker list.

Best known for his success in the World Cup series with 33 victories and the most US Skiing Olympic medals, Miller is one of the greatest. Miller won six medals in the Winter Olympics − two silvers (giant slalom and combined) in Salt Lake City 2002, a gold (super combined), a silver (super-G) and a bronze (downhill) in Vancouver 2010 and a bronze (super-G) in Sochi 2014.

Born and raised in New Hampshire, Miller is known in the mountains and will return to the East for the return of the Boston show known for its popularity and success in Massachusetts. When asked about joining the show line up, Miller commented: “When asked about joining the show line up, Miller said: “I’m really looking forward to hanging out with the Boston ski show crowd again. No matter where you ski in the U.S., New England skiers stand out. I couldn’t have succeeded without the ski culture they established. It’s a homecoming for me.”
