Have you ever wanted to unleash your inner Indiana Jones, but without the annoying college lectures and having to deal with Shia Labeouf? The Grailer Games, a new competitive treasure hunting adventure race launching this fall, will help you unleash your archaeological ambitions. Top teams will split a prize pot of up to one million dollars. Beware though, this race is right in our Rocky Mountain backyard, and we’re already putting together a crack team of adventurers to claim in the prize. We’ll see you in September if you want to take us on.
In the shadow of famed mountains like the Jungfrau and the Eiger, Grindelwald, Switzerland is a peerless adventure basecamp. The alpine climbing and skiing communities both have storied heritage in the region, but mountain biking is really just kicking off. The potential for long descents within view of the Eiger Nordwand and small mountain community living has us wishing for a long week in Grindelwald soon.
For generations, fly fishing has been an escape and way to reconnect with nature for Americans. Redington’s Find Your Water series tells individual stories of fly fishing and how it connects us to our publics lands and to each other. The first episode of Season Two tracks artist Josh DeSmit as he catches trout and finds inspiration for his painting.
Apres Visuals put together an absolutely stunning reel of footage for this short feature. If ever you needed some inspiration to pack up and head out for a long vacation of exploring the Mountains and Deserts of the Intermountain West, this is it.
