DENVER (AP) — Colorado is welcoming this year’s Outdoor Retailer and Snow Show, a multimillion-dollar gathering of outdoor industry brands and retailers.
The show debuted Thursday in Denver after a high-profile departure from its longtime home in Salt Lake City in a dispute over preserving public lands.
Organizers have criticized President Donald Trump’s decision to drastically shrink two national monuments in Utah. Some Utah political leaders backed that move.
Outdoor industry leaders insist that preserving public lands is vital to their trade.
