BACKPACKER heads to the biggest gear conference in all the land

Outdoor Retailer’s Winter Market tradeshow should be in full swing about now—which means half of the BACKPACKER crew will land in Salt Lake City just in time to hit the parties before getting the scoop on all the latest n’ greatest outdoor gear.

Expect a few adventures in between: Last year, BACKPACKER editors skied, ran in the Wasatch Wobble trailrunning race, and even busted out a few hikes while bringing you video footage, first impressions, and must-have lists from the show floor.

Keep following the Daily Dirt, our Facebook and Twitter feeds, and outdoor industry partner SNEWS to get all the beta on the gear you’ll want most in 2010.
