Outdoor Project to Give Away Free Pro Memberships Over Holiday Weekend

PORTLAND, OREGON (February 9, 2015) –
Local startup Outdoor Project—found online at outdoorproject.com—announced today they would be giving away free Pro Membership to new users from February 13 – February 16, 2015.

This year, with Friday the 13th, Presidents’ Day Weekend and Valentine’s Day all happening at the same time, Outdoor Project is launching a promotion to give away free Pro Membership to new users who register on the site from Friday, February 13 through Monday, February 16. By registering for a free basic membership, users can save adventures to their ‘To Do’ list and check adventures off their ‘Explored List,’ making it easy to organize future trips. Members can also leave current trip reports and comments to help other community members with their own adventure planning. Free Pro Membership comes with unlimited access to Outdoor Project’s downloadable field guides and custom maps.

Tyson Gillard, co-founder and CEO at Outdoor Project commented, “It’s the first free National Park weekend and we want to give people another way to find a new adventure even if they are not able to make it to a National Park this weekend. Outdoor Project is in the business of promoting great outdoor experiences, and since it’s Valentine’s Day this weekend, we want to encourage people to give the gift of an outdoor experience over traditional red and pink, heart-covered who-knows-what.”

Visit OutdoorProject.com to signup for your free Pro Membership this weekend and plan a new adventure. With content covering everything from hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, mountain biking and kayaking to camping, wildlife viewing, and urban parks, there are resources for any outdoor adventurer.
Gillard concludes, “Don’t get me wrong. I love chocolate and my wife loves flowers. But why not give a custom set of maps and set adventure dates to last the whole year too.”
