Outside has broken this list down into a number of categories, including the top outdoor entrepreneurs, most accomplished athletes, and the boldest activists. Some of the individuals who make the cut include Alex Honnold, Tommy Caldwell, and Andrezj Bargiel. Other names that may not be quite so familiar include BioLite cofounder John Cedar, Tyler Haney from Outdoor Voices, and Mona Caron, an artist with an impressive vision.
I’m a fan of Outside‘s approach here. Rather than trying to name a single person of the year, or focusing solely on high profile adventurers, they’ve got a great mix of both famous outdoorsmen and women, as well as some lesser known individuals that we should have on our radar. The profiles are short, but informative, with some great insights and information on why these people belong on a “people of the year” list.
So? Did Outside miss anyone? Who would you have liked to have seen on this list? To find out who made the cut, read the article here.
