Insight and inspiration provide an edge that everybody can use in these economic times. Both can be found by listening to people who have become business leaders. And that is the driving force behind the launch of the SNEWS Power Players -- an honor that will acknowledge outdoor industry leaders for varied accomplishments in different industry sectors.
Announced in the 2009 SNEWS Winter Outdoor magazine, just out and also available at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market, the Power Players Top 10 includes a group of people culled from nominations by our readers and from our editors.
