I recently received an email about my membership changing. What does this mean for me?
If you were previously one of our digital Outside+ members, we’ve lowered your renewal price and simplified our benefits. You are now in our newest Outside+ membership model!
A little over a year ago, we launched Outside+ to inspire and motivate you to get outdoors. Now, we’ve made some adjustments and lowered the price of Outside+. No action is required on your part. You heard us right! At your next renewal date, the price of your annual Outside+ subscription will be dropped to $60/yr! With simplifying our benefits, you will now receive Outside Magazine only. We no longer offer printed editorial magazines in our Outside+ membership. For more information on editorial print magazines dissolving, please go here!
The Outside+ membership includes access to online content across over 15 brands, members-only TV shows and films, expert courses, and mapping maps. You can find all the benefits of the Outside+ membership here.
What if I have already canceled my auto-renewal?
If you have already canceled your auto-renewal, no worries! You will still be part of our newest Outside+ membership model. You will have the remainder of your subscription to explore, discover, and learn with the Outside+ membership.
If you do not wish to run out the remainder of your subscription, you may cancel immediately here.
What’s different about this Membership?
Our mission is to get you outdoors. To sharpen our focus, we’re pouring all of our knowledge and resources into the core benefits of the Outside+ membership. Quite simply, we want you to have the absolute best experience as you read, practice, map, watch, and learn.
That means 2022 is the last year we will be printing our editorial magazines. This excludes Outside magazine, Gear Guide, and Cycling Tips, which we are excited to continue printing. We have not yet launched the ability for our users to add an Outside print magazine subscription, but we will be adding this upgraded capability soon.
While letting go comes with sadness, the same team who produced the print publication you loved will continue to provide the expert information you’ve come to trust. We look forward to bringing you more adventure and inspiration for years to come.
Why is print being discontinued?
Print editions have been at the heart of our business for over 75 years- a span of time only possible due to valued readers like you. It is with mixed emotions we will no longer issue the print version of some of our magazines.
We are excited to bring to you more series and films on Outside Watch, classes on Outside Learn, and our GPS apps in addition to more interactive articles and a continuous stream of the storytelling you know and love online. This shift also allows us to double down on our environmental commitments by reducing our carbon footprint by 25% according to climate partner, Cooler, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. After all, our sport and our health rely on a healthy planet.
The transition from print to digital allows us to focus on bringing you the very best in content, including premium video so that we can join you on the trail with immersive storytelling, hard-hitting reporting, and tips and tricks. Our online content can be accessed faster, acted upon more immediately, and helps us build a stronger community around the sport we love.
