Lynsey Dyer Launches Official Pretty Faces Teaser, Sets Tour Dates
Posted on September 8, 2014

Since she first pitched the creative idea, we’ve been big backers of Lynsey Dyer’s Pretty Faces project. For Dyer and her crew of hard-charging ladies, it’s been a long road of finding creative inspirations, launching an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign, stacking serious footage, editing into the wee hours and apparently, unicorns. But after many stages, phases and diversions, and much anticipation for an all-women’s ski movie, the Unicorn Picnic crew has simultaneously launched the teaser and announced the tour dates. The LYA blog will report on the tour kick off in Boulder on September 30th and be first in line to cheer on the new women of ski film when Dyer takes her tour to our hometown.

The Promised Land

Last year, Eddie Bauer athlete Kyle Miller jetted to New Zealand for the counter-seasonal snowboard season. He had many, many adventures in the Southern Alps, but he stuck around for a few extra weeks to sample the legendary treks and tracks with his new Kiwi friends. While the system of tracks and huts in New Zealand is world-famous, Kyle provided us with his best images and recommendations for hiking that land of adventure. This is Kyle’s recap of his long walk in the Southern Alps.

Kyle Miller Completes Full Circuit of Southeast Asia
Posted on August 19, 2014

Sunrise over Angkor Wat

Our favorite world-traveling vagabond—Kyle Miller—just completed a lap through Southeast Asia on his way to the southern snow season in New Zealand. Along the way, he checked out Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, and Bali, alternating between the temples of Angkor Wat, the beaches of  Vietnam, and the moped culture of Bali. In classic Kyle Miller form, he did it all on a shoestring budget, exuding his characteristic global optimism and in one pair of Eddie Bauer Full Circuit shoes.

Stargazer at Dusk

Wednesday we ran the latest sat-uplinked blog post from the Destiantion Torngat expedition and their progress down the mighty George River to the ocean in Labrador. They are way the heck out there, now deep in virgin whitewater, but are keeping us updated via DeLorme InReach and audio dispatch. Today, we’re highlighting the audio dispatches from the Destination Torngat expedition’s last week of tracked progress through Nutillilik, the Ford River, the mouth of the George and Kangiqsualujjuaq. —LYA Editor

Destination Torngat Reaches the End of the George and Runs the Ford—Part Four
Posted on August 13, 2014

Sunset on the George

We’ve been tracking the progress of Destination Torngat deep in Labrador’s wilderness for the past few weeks. So far, it’s been an epic kayaking tale of historical canoe routes, swarming mosquitoes, and long flatwater paddles in the remote Canadian wilderness destined to become Canada’s next national park. But the big news is that the team has reached the end of the George, swapped out Erik Boomer for Chris Korbulic on their roster, and headed further afield to tackle the rarely-run whitewater of these stunningly remote mountains. And they’ve added a serious deterrent capability for the polar bears. Yes, polar bears. Ben Stookesberry checked in with his update via satellite uplink and Delorme InReach, and this is his visual, audio and written report from the wilderness. —LYA Editor

Caroline George Rediscovers Classic Canadian Rock in Squamish on Written in Stone
Posted on August 7, 2014

Caroline George climbing in Squamish-7

When Eddie Bauer guide and Chamonix resident Caroline George headed for our summer guide meeting on America’s west coast she saw an opportunity. Rather than fly direct to Seattle only to land jetlagged in three days of product meetings, George extended her solo stay to include a pre-diversion to the towering granite faces of Squamish, BC. In typical CG form, she squeezed in a 3,000-vertical-foot hike/run up Sea to Sky trail, a morning BC-style yoga class, a crushing session at the Pet Wall and then—with friend and fellow guide Jasmin Caton—one of the first repeats of Written In Stone, a new 5.11d route on the Prow Wall—all before she dropped into our product meetings.
