Sustainability Story

We feel that business should help protect and cherish our environment. To put people and the planet over profit. We believe strongly in doing no harm. In choosing the suppliers we work with, in choosing the brands that we carry, in choosing the power we use for our store. This choice also extends to the fact that we value human effort to earn the turns by skiing uphill on your own effort, which is why we love back country skiing and trail running. We believe that human powered effort gives us greater respect and stewardship for the land. We want our legacy to be for people to live healthier lives by being fitter, having more care for our planet and a deeper respect for the mountains and wilderness that we all enjoy.
