Outdoor Retailer Winter Market launches today with the All Mountain Demo (Day 0) held at Utah's Solitude Resort. Seth will be on the scene, scouting out new winter packs, apparel, gear, and technology; navigating the snowshoe obstacle course (we want pictures!); meeting outdoor brands; and much more at this hands-on (and feet-on) event.
Stay tuned for his recap tonight. In the meantime, you can check out this video from last year:
On Wednesday, we'll both head into the behemoth Salt Palace for Day 1 of 4 of the outdoor industry trade show. Outdoor Retailer is a heady gear experience, and with 1,100 brands—large and small, new and established—exhibiting we expect plenty of new gear, apparel, and technology news to share.

Since Seth and I can't personally take all of you on a tour of OR booths (sorry, guys), we'll share the experience with images, videos, tweets, and blogs from the show daily.
