Just Passing Through: Bali

For a little travel inspiration – and to remind us that spring is finally coming – Reef Sandals just launched their first episode of the Just Passing Through series. Reef athletes are constantly discovering new countries, crissing time zones, and passing through new locales. In this first episode, they track surfer Rob Machado as he explores the island of Bali in Indonesia.

Zion 8k

Zion is one of our favorite National Parks. From death defying canyoneering and hiking routes, to pristine waterfalls and pools, it is truly an oasis for adventure in the Southwest desert. Whether you are a desert rat who makes a pilgrimage every year, or debating your first trip, this short video (shot in ultra high 8k hi-def!) will leave you inspired to explore the red rock canyon country.

Arc’teryx Presents: WKND

Too often we get caught up in the idea that a real adventure takes months of planning and then days or travel. Arc’teryx’s new video WKND reminds us that there is adventure to be had right out your back door. We don’t all have the Rockies of British Columbia within a short drive of the office, but with a little research and exploration, finding a weekend “micro-adventure” between your daily 9-5 grind should be up on your bucket list.

Distiller’s List: MTN MIX

Last year the team at Distiller’s List gave us their holiday picks for good booze. This time around, they’ve crafter a series of “MTN Mix” recipes for a twist on some of our favorite drinks. Our favorite is the Bumps-a-rita, a clever, ski culture infused margarita. If you could have a couple waiting at the lodge for us at the end of the day, we’d appreciate it.

The series is set 10,000 years before House Atreides is nearly destroyed and promises to fill in some of the gaps around the Bene Gesserit, the sacred sisterhood that steers the course of history in an attempt to create their own chosen one with unique powers.
