Words by Sarah Stepec. When I first came across the Kapta shorts I was looking for something that would allow me to comfortably run all distances. As an endurance athlete that spends a lot of time in the mountains, I had already pieced together a criteria based on a number of issues I’d been having.

Words and photos by Wayne Flann Winter in the Pacific Northwest (and elsewhere), so far, has been a non-event. Though the alpine has a great base, ski touring has been dismal.

Truth be told, I can count the amount of times I have skied on one hand. It's something I have managed to keep quiet for a long time, despite being labeled as an adventure photographer.
