Winter is upon us and with all the frozen moisture falling from the sky, the powder hounds are out in full force from Colorado and the West. A new year is also upon us, meaning lots of new gear is being released by your favorite brands. Every January, the outdoor retail industry descends upon Salt Lake City for a four-day showcase of the latest and greatest gear, colors and products.
It’s every gear-head’s dream to attend a show like this, but gaining access isn’t so simple. Without industry credentials you are more likely to get into the Utah State Capital Building. I am here to share a few of my favorites with you to give you a glimpse into the circus known as the Winter Outdoor Retailer Show.
