Outdoor Retailer’s All Mountain Demo Launches All New Events and Activities at Solitude Mountain Resort January 6, 2016
Retailers, reps and media were invited to preview the latest in winter sports and backcountry products
The All Mountain Demo, is a one of a kind product demo and testing day that kicks off the event-before-the-event at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2016. With a focus on backcountry safety, this unique event gives retailers, reps and the media first look at next season’s latest gear, equipment and technology.
Solitude Mountain Resort will be home for the day, January 6, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Products on exhibit will feature the latest 2016/2017 gear, accessories and technology like alpine touring randonee, snowshoeing and telemark gear, avalanche safety equipment, winter camping and survival gear designed to make the backcountry safe, enjoyable and accessible for all. Attendees are invited to test everything from avalanche safety equipment, winter camping and survival gear as well as apparel and footwear appropriate for the season.
“The beautiful, relaxed setting of the Solitude Mountain Resort, is the perfect place to demo and test,” said Marisa Nicholson, VP and Outdoor Retailer Show Director. “Getting the opportunity to speak one-on-one with the brand representatives and get hands on with the products gives specialty retailers a competitive advantage—knowing the product details and having the knowledge to better sell the product, makes them a trusted reliable resource that their customers can trust.”
This year’s All Mountain Demo features all NEW events and activities:

NEW – Dig Zone – Shovel Testing Area
At the Shovel Testing Area, you can test small-bladed shovels all the way to large blades — and go back to your shop armed with the best information for your customers. See for yourself which shovels move the most snow, which are best for building backcountry jumps, which have the best surface area, which are the best options for when you have limited pack space and everything in-between.
