We’re so stoked for a great winter season! We are lucky to have such wonderful customers like you and we want to get to know you more.

Part of our mission statement is “to provide education and foster community”. So how do we do that exactly? Events!

We strive to come up with exciting new ways to bring the community together. We want to celebrate our shared love of the backcountry, make new friends, and learn something new along the way! Whether it’s a gear demo, film screening, or educational course, we hope that you’ll join us to gain more knowledge of your favorite backcountry activity. We also work hard to support local organizations and non-profits who work hard to strengthen our community.

Here are some upcoming events for the Winter that we’re really excited about:
