We've been trolling the floor at this year's Outdoor Retailer trade show, checking out next winter's gear. So far, the story has been about the sidecountry, and ski, boots, packs, and jackets that are designed to be used in the backcountry just as well as the resort.

The annual Snowsports Industries America trade show, a gathering of the ski and snowboard industries’ athletes, retailers, media, and manufacturers, is taking place right now in Denver, Colorado. We've been walking the floors to check out all the best gear for winter 2010-11, including a jacket with doughnut graphics and ski socks covered with eggs and bacon.
