Know Better, Do Better

By Dave Rastovich   |   Apr 4, 2017 April 4, 2017

As I step into MAS Active-Leisureline, a Fair Trade Certified factory that makes Patagonia products near Colombo, Sri Lanka, the first thing that confronts my senses is the sound. Row after row of clamorous cutting and sewing machinery is being operated by a few hundred workers, all dressed in bright… Read More

Lelu Island and the adjacent underwater region known as Flora Bank lie at the mouth of the Skeena River, one of North America’s great salmon superhighways.

A Park on the Run

By Kt Miller   |   Mar 23, 2017 March 23, 2017

I woke in a daze and waddled, still in my sleeping bag, bottom unzipped, feet out, toward the camp kitchen to greet the team. The morning was brisk and we’d gone light on clothes to save weight. My hands snuck out to grasp a cup of hot coffee. Two bull… Read More

When the Mountains Were Wild

By Mitch Tölderer   |   Mar 21, 2017 March 21, 2017

I was looking for real mountain wilderness in Europe. All of the roads, ski lifts, huts, dams and avalanche safety reports make it really easy and comfortable to access great ski touring, climbing and freeriding in the central European Alps. Some of the huts feel more like hotels than shelters… Read More

Quick and Dirty

By Carl Zoch   |   Mar 17, 2017 March 17, 2017

We were craving it: fresh ribbons of single track, grinding climbs, white-knuckle descents, solitude, dirt. Four friends, four loaded bikes (rush-packed, survival-style), vague plan, limited time. The consensus was to leave it wide open and see where the trail might lead in a condensed time frame. Not a month. It… Read More

Dirtbag Diaries Podcast: The Fear is Real

By Fitz Cahall   |   Mar 10, 2017 March 10, 2017

Loosely speaking, there are two kinds of fear. There’s the fear of external, objective hazards–like getting caught in an avalanche, or taking a bad fall climbing or getting mauled by a grizzly bear. Then, there’s the internal, more slippery kind of fear, like the fear of not being pretty enough,… Read More

Keep Public Lands in Public Hands

By Yvon Chouinard   |   Mar 9, 2017 March 9, 2017

American politicians have always been obsessed with running government “like a business.” They promise to make bureaucracies leaner and let the free market fix all our problems. Well, if America’s public lands were a business, shareholders would be shocked by the gross negligence of some of their top executives. Every… Read More
