During this fun and busy time of year, we hope you’re able to appreciate precious time with your family and friends and enjoy the season.

The SNEWS team will be operating on a limited schedule for the holiday week to allow our staff to do the same. If you need us, we’ll be out in the snow, recharging our batteries.

Our schedule is as follows:

  • Our physical office will be closed from Monday, December 25 through Tuesday, January 2. Keep up with us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter throughout the season!
  • Keep an eye out for our year in review articles, where we take a look back at our most popular content from 2017.
  • We will return to a full production and news cycle on Tuesday, January 3.

We selfishly hope that you hold all your breaking outdoor industry news until after the holiday, but if anything urgent comes up, we will be monitoring our inbox ([email protected]).

Thank you for being a loyal SNEWS reader and supporter. We wish you and your families a wonderful holiday season and a successful new year, and we look forward to seeing you at the Big Show in January.
