From the Editor | Late Summer 2017


Park City summers are one of Utah’s best-kept secrets, and I was lucky to spend a few days in town testing the latest, greatest gear innovations at Outdoor PressCamp. We tested gear on the trails and on the water, and a favorite camp moment was stand up paddleboarding the waveless waters at Deer Valley’s Pebble Beach—a boat-free destination that’s ideal for learning.

Mastering stand up paddleboarding is a Utah summer must, and in this issue you’ll learn about all the other adventures you have to have before the season ends. From scoring a coveted river permit to ziplining through a forest and cycling Salt Lake’s brew byway, there’s enough to keep you busy in the Beehive State way past Labor Day.

Follow our summer adventures on Instagram at @sportsguidemag and share yours with #sportsguidemag for a chance to have your photo featured.

Happy adventuring!
