The Outlier Media Day – a gathering place for the outdoor industry’s best writers, shooters and at-large bon vivants. In this case, a credential-only media and VIP only day held on Friday, September 9 in advance of opening Outlier’s doors to the public.

Marketing people – come ride bikes with editors outside the confines of the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Editors – come throw a leg over the industry’s latest tech and have the brightest product people in the business tell you all about their new babies. Sales folks – invite your buyers and throw them a VIP credential (included with your demo space). Then all hold hands and go for sushi. Or fried chicken.

Media members receive a weekend long all-access pass to lifts, VIP course access and complimentary entry into fee-based events and competitive events.


Interested member of the media? Please visit our credential application page to submit your credential request.


10:00am-4:30pm, Friday, September 9. Credentialed members of the media also receive demo and lift access througout the weekend.


Credential pickup takes place in the Express Lift building located just west of Gondola One in Mountain Plaza of Vail Village beginning at 8am on Friday, September 9. If you’re crossing the bridge from the main Vail parking structure, keep heading south (towards the mountain). You’ll see the Scott Bikes demo rigs on your right. Packet pickup and reg are immediately behind them.
