10 Places To Be Outside In Minneapolis and St Paul
Thu, 09/18/2014 - 15:29
Minneapolis and St. Paul are like most big cities: skyscrapers, traffic, and 9-to-5 workdays define the week for a lot of us. But that doesn’t slow us down. In fact, Minneapolis and St. Paul have won the fittest city for the third year in row. So, if you’re looking to experience the abundance of nature we are surrounded with in this city, here are some great ways to get outside. 
Product Testing And The Design Process: With Lusti And Sarah Wallace (Photos by Christina Lusti and Austin Ross)
Mon, 09/08/2014 - 19:50
"I met head Whiteline designer Sarah Wallace three years ago. Spending time with Sarah at her desk has become a common occasion between ski trips and shoulder season visits to the design office. I started out knowing little about outerwear apparel and over the years I learned about seam allowance, face fabrics rating, DWR - I even had the chance to sew a few pieces of my own in the office. This opportunity allowed me to create a working relationship with the design team and an understanding of the true craftsmanship that goes into the all Arc'teryx products..."
Paul McSorley's Baffin Island Expedition Trip Report
Thu, 09/04/2014 - 11:21
"We arrived in the village of Clyde River, NU July 27 and connected with our outfitter, the gruff but straight shooting Levi Palituq. Over the next few days we made two attempts to reach Sam Ford Fiord by powerboat. On the second effort we managed (barely) to get out of Clyde Inlet amidst a sea of slowly fracturing pack ice. The 160km nautical trip which takes six hours in good conditions, lasted nearly twelve hours as we jockeyed and bumper-boated our way through a giant jigsaw puzzle of ice bergs..."
Siegrist On 'Speed' In Switzerland
Tue, 09/02/2014 - 13:50
"I first saw video of ‘Speed’ probably 8 years ago. I was in my sophomore year as an undergrad at Naropa University in Boulder, Co. I had been climbing for a little over a year. Every day that I had time after class I would drive my truck up to the local bouldering spot, Flagstaff Mountain, and desperately climb V5 until my skin was wrecked. After one of these bouldering sessions, a friend showed me the climbing film, ‘Auto Route’, and totally in awe, I watched it on repeat. The basic story is that three American boys were touring Europe and crushing. For some reason the footage of Dave Graham climbing ‘Speed’ left a special impression on me..."
The Dogs Days In Southwest, BC With Leigh McClurg Of Pebbleshoo
Fri, 08/22/2014 - 11:17
The start of summer, until now, has been a busy time. We've had a long spell of clear, warm weather in our home of Squamish and Southwest British Columbia, which means every day feels like an opportunity to get outside and explore. We almost long for the rains to return so that we can have a moment to stop and simply reflect on what we've been doing and where we hope our efforts will take us in the future...

We had the idea of collaborating on a film project about ice climbing in Cogne, our chosen home for the last 10 years, for quite a long time. This small mountain village deep in the Italian Alps is known around the world for its spectacular ice climbs...
