INDIANAPOLIS – (November 16, 2022) – Outdoor Adventure X, a new adventure festival launching this summer, opened sales today for single-day and weekend tickets, as well as camping and glamping packages. The 2-day event open to the public will debut at Snowbasin Resort in Huntsville, Utah, June 17-18, 2023, with camping starting June 16. Outdoor Adventure X will feature hands-on outdoor product experiences, including climbing, cycling, hiking, overlanding, watersports, and more, plus workshops, gear demos, live music, food, and family fun. Numerous avenues for outdoor brands to get involved and connect directly with consumers are available, along with opportunities for overland vehicle and adventure van owners to join the showcase area. Tickets and camping packages can now be purchased online at outdooradventurex.com.
Outdoor Adventure X will take place at Snowbasin Resort with family-friendly access to on-mountain activities, brand activations, and camping, plus the resort will serve as the base for clinics, a charity raffle, film screenings, live music, food trucks, and a beer garden. The nearby Pineview Reservoir will host on-water demos, and the Anderson Cove Campground will offer overnight camping and glamping.
Attendees of all ages at Outdoor Adventure X can participate in a wealth of outdoor activities through product experiences and demonstrations, clinics and workshops. Weber State University’s Outdoor Program will anchor much of the educational programming by guiding skills clinics across sports, including climbing, kayaking, mountain biking, paddleboarding, and yoga. Weber State will also host knowledgeable experts to lead presentations on wilderness first aid, leave no trace, and other tenets of responsible outdoor adventuring.
“Providing high impact educational experiences is what we do,” said Daniel Turner, Associate Director – Outdoor Program, Weber State. “The Weber State Outdoor Program is ecstatic to partner with OAX to bring outdoor education directly to the consumer, in one convenient venue. There will be something for everyone, from the beginner to the professional. We can’t wait to showcase what Ogden, Utah, has to offer.”
Outdoor Adventure X has partnered with two regional nonprofit organizations selected as this year’s beneficiaries of a charity raffle – the Weber Sustainability Fund, dedicated to encouraging meaningful experiences for residents and visitors while ensuring a net-positive impact on the area’s natural resources and infrastructure; and Trails Foundation Northern Utah, building trails that create a culture where all have places to walk, run and ride as they enjoy nature and connect with their neighbors in Northern Utah. The raffle will take place in-person during the event on Saturday, June 17, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the nonprofit partners. Charity raffle tickets can be purchased on site or when event tickets or camping packages are purchased online.
“We are thrilled to partner with Outdoor Adventure X to promote trail etiquette,” said Aric W. Manning, Executive Director Trails Foundation Northern Utah. “We are proud to be the beneficiary of the raffle as this will help ensure TFNU can continue to support our mission and vision in Northern Utah.”
The Outdoor Adventure X consumer event runs the weekend prior to the Outdoor Retailer Summer trade show held at the Salt Palace Convention Center from June 19-21, 2023. Registered Outdoor Retailer attendees will have free access to Outdoor Adventure X on Sunday, June 18, 2023, for an industry day.
