OUR KIND OF PEOPLE
Our readers are outdoor enthusiasts. What sets Outdoor Idaho Magazine apart is our exclusive coverage of outdoor recreation. We share the stories of human powered sport – people with a passion for pursuing the outside world and challenging their somatic limits. We value the interests of these trailblazers and want to partner with advertisers that are like-minded and have shared passions to create a community of exploration. If your into any of these things, you might be just who we exist for!
Pitch A Story
While the editor sets the tone and vision for each issue, we rely 100% on contributors to create a diversity in our story-telling — we want to capture authentic stories that truly mean something to our readers.
Our contributors can only be as good as their passions. That’s why we encourage you to pitch us a story. Stories are most compelling when they come from the heart, and only you know what moves your soul.
