This week, our outdoor and fitness team is out in Denver, Colorado covering Outdoor Retailer Snow Show. The trade show is arguably the single biggest outdoor event of the year. It’s where the biggest names in the business show off some of their most ambitious materials and products — most of which will set the narrative for 2019, and possibly beyond.

Whether you’re a passive observer of the outdoor gear world or are an incurable nerd when it comes to new waterproof materials and other backcountry tech — you can follow along here and on our Instagram feed for the duration of the three-day event. We’ll post the latest news, roundups and exclusive coverage right here.
