With a shortened Outdoor Retailer Show this year and for other reasons, fewer friends headed to Salt Lake City to participate in the outdoor industry’s biannual meeting of the minds. This made for a mellower show, but no less interesting. As in the last two Winter ORs, I skipped the All Mountain Demo – my first year it had been a major disappointment, as it seems disorganized and not worth the time. I did hear that this year went better, so maybe next year I’ll check it out and see how it goes. Might be fun if a big group decided to do it together.
