Outdoor Retailer Show Final Day

outdoor-retailer-show-winter-exitI arrived at the Outdoor Retailer show for the final day and it was quiet.

I think it was a combination of Saturday night's festivities and the plethora of snow that had fallen in the mountains, luring skiers and snowboarders from the show to the Cottonwood Canyon resorts just minutes away from the Salt Palace Convention Center.

In fact around noontime I talked to the President of Mountain Hardwear who had just returned from a morning of skiing 20"+ at Snowbird. He commented on just how easy it was to get to the slopes from downtown Salt Lake.

During the final day the aisles picked up and I had some great conversations with people from Sigg, Mountain Hardwear, Wigwam and Camelbak.

All in all Outdoor Retailer Show appeared to be a good show for most and a great show for more than a few of those I talked to.  We're already looking forward to the Summer OR Show in August 2009.
