Are you making enough money? Getting paid what you're worth? Dive into our complete salary report.

In January 2019, SNEWS launched a comprehensive outdoor industry salary survey in partnership with Category One to gather concrete data on salaries of people working in the outdoor industry, from sales to PR, from marketing to gear design, from retail to media, from athletes to ambassadors.

Find out where you stack up based on factors like your gender, years of experience, education, region, job title, and more.
