It's been a challenging year, but as it draws to a close, we sincerely hope you have the chance to enjoy some quality time with family and friends. You deserve it.

The SNEWS team will be operating on a limited schedule this week, logging some much-needed R&R and gearing up for another busy year of bringing you the most important news and stories in the outdoor industry.

Some things to know about our operations this week:

  • Our editorial staff will be on vacation with limited access to email from December 24-27, but as always, if you have a news tip that needs attention, please submit it through our tips line, which is always open.
  • One of our final projects this year is wrapping up the winter issue of The Voice, which will hit mailboxes in late January. If you haven't already, subscribe to reserve your copy. The subscription deadline for receiving this issue is January 4.
  • We will return to our normal production and news cycle on Monday, December 28.

Finally, and most important: Thank you for being a loyal SNEWS reader. We couldn't do this work without your support, and for that we are extremely grateful. 

We wish you and your families a wonderful holiday season.
