On August 5, SGB honored the 40 Under 40 class of 2016 at the St. Regis Deer Valley Resort in Park City, UT.

More than 140 attendees came together at the premiere evening event, held during Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, gladly trading the 95-degree-plus heat in Salt Lake City for some cooler temperatures up in the mountains. Networking and cocktails outdoors were followed by dinner and the awards ceremony inside.

The annual SGB 40 Under 40 event honors the leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship and passion of the active lifestyle industry’s up-and-coming talent. Nominated by their peers (who shared some great stories of the honorees on stage), the 2016 class presented us with the bright future for the business.

A big SGB thanks to all who attended!
