Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2011
It’s that time of year again! This week Salt Lake City will be overrun with thousands of outdoor gear geeks. We descend on the city to celebrate the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market – not just any trade show, this is a week of both hard work and lots of fun.
I arrive in town tomorrow night so that I can attend the Demo Day at Solitude Mountain Resort on Wednesday. I plan on lots of snowshoeing, skiing, and miscellaneous other snow fun. The show continues Thursday through Sunday at the Salt Palace Convention Center where new gear will be debuted, manufacturers will launch updated lines, and entrepreneurs will hawk their ideas and early products.
Although I expect to be busy from the wee morning hours until late into the evening, I hope to have time to provide updates here on a daily basis. Don’t be too hard on me if I slack though – a girl needs her sleep at a high-energy event like this. For live show-floor updates you can follow my twitter feed here – I’m much more likely to stay on top of that throughout the day. If you have any questions about the gear and goings-on, or want to see something specific, send me a message on twitter and I’ll try to swing by booths and get some answers and information.
