Outdoor Retailer unleashed its events and education schedule for January's Snow Show. Topics include tariffs, retail data, creating connections with consumers, clean energy, sustainability strategies, and everyone's outdoors.

The Boy Scouts of America, a 108-year-old organization, reportedly hired lawyers to explore a Chapter 11 filing. Even amid including girls in programming, declining membership and lawsuits over allegations of sexual abuse might have pushed them to the edge.

Some hunting brands, including Mystery Ranch, are stepping up to create more sizes for customers of all shapes, something the outdoor industry has also been working on.

Sometime in February, Stio is opening up a Mountain Studio in Park City, Utah. “The combination of a super active, outdoor-centric local population, three major ski areas, outstanding summer recreation activities and significant visitation from large metro markets makes it an ideal match for us," said Stio founder and CEO Steve Sullivan.

After 31 years at Therm-a-Rest, Senior Product Developer Jim Marson will retire at the end of the year.

Because of the potential impact of tariffs, GoPro Inc. is planning to move most of its U.S.-bound camera production out of China by the summer of 2019. But international-bound camera production will remain in China.

Go RVing has teamed up with Verde Brand Communications to lead its public relations and digital marketing programs. Verde will also help with the launch of the new RVX trade event, taking place in Salt Lake City in March 2019.

Mammut is the official partner of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, which means ski patrol and mountain guides will be using the Mammut Barryvox S beacon, Fastlock 280 Probe, Alugator Fastlock Shovel and the Pro Removable Airbag 3.0 in everyday patrolling and rescue situations.
