First Look: Winter Gear For 2020/21
Twice a year the outdoor industry gathers to get a sneak peak at upcoming trends and gear; they mingle with fellow gearheads and brand execs, and they drink more than most adults should. But the ultimate goal is to see what’s should be in stores for next winter (or summer).
The Outdoor Retailer and Snowsports Industry of America combined trade shows in 2017 to showcase winter sports gear, accessories, and clothing for alpine skiing, snowshoeing, snowboarding, leisure travel (hmmm) and camping.
This winter’s Show once again trotted out some solid trends for 20/21 but it was a monumental and futile endeavor to investigate the more than 1,000 global brands spreading across three floors of convention space in downtown Denver in only three days.
We dropped by for two days of walking the aisles, to see what might be new and innovative but after 48 hours we were ready to get back to Utah. It’s always fun to see old friends and geek out on gear but soon you begin to feel like your head will explode from the abundance of skis, footwear, clothing and gadgets. Take a look at some of the things we think you might want to tell Santa about so you’re ready for your next big winter vacay.
