Summer trade shows can still be good pickings for a snow oriented blogger. Other than the aggro panhandler I had to call 911 on, things are going well (a psycho in the parking lot, kind of sad, but scary). Overall, this year’s Outdoor Retailer continues to have a good collegial vibe and is well attended. That of course means ever more people doing your favorite sports, but also means everything like conservation initiatives to gear innovation will continue to respond positively to the popularity of outdoor recreation. A few items below, more later.

B&D is here for things like Dynafit binding shims, crampons, more.
