Melissa Arnot Finds A Different Form of Adventure in the Canary Islands
Posted on March 3, 2014

This past fall, our Eddie Bauer guides and athletes journeyed to the Canary Islands off the Atlantic coast of North Africa for our Spring photo shoot. In this adventure travel destination, they put our new Travex® gear and active fabric technologies to the test in the varied microclimates of these spectacular islands. Eddie Bauer guide Melissa Arnot is acclimated to climbing and guiding on the world’s tallest peaks—from Everest and Rainier to Kilimanjaro—but she found a different type of adventure experience exploring Santa Cruz, La Laguna, and the volcanic peak of Mount Teide on Tenerife.

Posted on February 28, 2014

It’s been a few weeks since we bumped into Kyle Miller and Jason Hummel at the Outdoor Retailer trade show. But while the snow was sparse in the Pacific Northwest, Kyle and Hummel went on the road. The touring supergroup road-tripped to Jackson Hole and to Montana and Idaho before landing back in the PNW for an epic throwback race from Snoqualmie Pass to Meany Lodge, one of the original ski areas in Washington State that dates to the pre-highway, Stampede Pass train tunnel days.

Pacific Alpine Guides Head North for Inversion at Rogers Pass
Posted on February 17, 2014

Shadows above the Tree Triangle

Snow is not often scarce in January in the Pacific Northwest. But this winter has been a bit thin in our home state, which has forced many in the Washington backcountry crowd to migrate north to the interior of British Columbia for the big peaks and deeper snowpacks of the Rogers Pass zones. Earlier this14 week we ran a story about Kyle Miller’s mission up the Asulkan to shred Forever Young and the Seven Steps to Paradise, but Tyler Reid and our friends at Pacific Alpine Guides also headed north to the same trailhead last month to complete the Lily Traverse through the Sapphire Col into the neighboring zone.

Posted on February 12, 2014

The stumps cut high

Chris Coulter spends his seasons guiding in Silverton, Colorado; Haines, Alaska; and Bariloche, Argentina. It’s a busy program, traveling the world from epic location to epic location, but even for a skilled guide like Coulter, one thing that never takes a backseat is the continuing education required to stay sharp where the avalanche dragons lurk.

Kyle Miller Shreds Forever Young and the Seven Steps to Paradise at Rogers Pass
Posted on February 10, 2014

Asulkan Hut at Night

After a wild ride through New Zealand in an unreliable Delica van, Kyle Miller landed back in the Northern Hemisphere. But our resident splitboard vagabond is a tough man to pin down, especially when the snowpacks are abnormally thin in the Pacific Northwest. Before we even knew he was stateside, Kyle was back on the road again, traveling north to Rogers Pass in the Canadian touring mecca of Glacier National Park. To keep us up to speed on his wanderings and his whereabouts, Kyle sent us this report of attending the Canuck Splitfest, linking up with Holly Walker and Liz Daley, touring into the Asulkan Hut with a big Washington crew, and slaying the famous lines of Forever Young and Seven Steps to Paradise in the heart of the Selkirks.
