The Best of Summer Outdoor Retailer 2018

We scouted Denver's Summer OR for up-and-coming all-season gear for skiers.

Since the Summer Outdoor Retailer (OR) trade show was hosted just a stone's throw from SKI Magazine's offices in Colorado, we decided to take a field trip to the annual event to check out what's hitting the market in spring and summer 2019 that skiers will want to get their hands on. TBH, we felt a little out of place around the likes of incredible climbers Alex Honnold and Emily Harrington, plus there weren't any new skis to gawk at, but we still found a good amount of stuff that any skier/gear junkie will appreciate.
