Outdoor Retailer: Show experience

Winter Outdoor Retailer is not only the biggest winter trade show in the country, it's also the biggest party. What happens when you get thousands of manufacturers, retailers, and media outlets in one place and add beer? FUN.

It's simply overwhelming to walk amongst all the technical innovations and new products. It's a sensory overload: bright colors and bold statements compete for your attention on every corner. The biggest booths, like those from Keen, Patagonia, Black Diamond and Mountain Hardware were massive: larger than my own retail store!

Every day at 4:00 the happy hours and giveaways start happening: kegs of beer are tapped, products are thrown into crowds, bikes and skis are raffled off, booths offer insane deals on gear, and bands start to play.

At most booths, you could donate $5 to benefit non-profits such as 1% for the Planet in exchange for a sweet stainless steel cup with endless refills of beer.

Products debuted at the 2013 Winter Outdoor Retailer will be released in the fall of 2013. Local Tahoe retailers that carry these brands include:
