Dan had mentioned his novel idea before our summer trip to Switzerland: we’d go backpacking, in the Alps -- no huts. Bring your sleeping bags and bivy sacks, he said. Brilliant, I thought.

Swiss climber Ueli Steck recently became the first person ever to climb the south face of Annapurna, perhaps the most technically challenging climb in the world. We sat down with the living legend to talk about the gear he can't live without and his approach to the sport, and to find out if there's life for him after climbing.
Part of staying active (and in turn, healthy) is understanding what your body is doing each day. Fitbit's focus on data has led to a suite of tools that make it easy to visualize a day, month, or even year’s worth of activity. It’s tough to understand where you need to go if you can’t understand where you’ve been; that’s why Fitbit tracks your most important vitals around the clock.
We talked with Kelly Slater, Julian Wilson, Stephanie Gilmore, CJ Hobgood and Coco Ho about the life of a professional surfer amid the sport's transition towards the World Surf League (WSL) in 2015.
After years mastering groomed trails, lift lines and overpriced hot chocolates, some people just need a change of pace when it comes to winter adventures. Whether it's snowshoeing in Maine, scaling manmade Colorado glaciers or camping in a Californian desert -- these destinations should be on every winter sportsman's radar.
The person responsible for cycling brand Rapha’s display of enthusiasm for fashion and cycling is the company’s Head of Central Brand Marketing, James Fairbank. We sat down with him on a recent stop in at Rapha's London HQ.

Freddie Wilkinson makes his home in the White Mountains, where he climbs and guides most of the year between putting up alpine first ascents on expeditions to Alaska, Nepal, Patagonia, India and Antarctica. These are his four favorite climbing areas out East, plus some inside tips on what to do when you're in the neighborhood.
For nearly 80 years, the Gunks have been one of the East’s most hallowed (not to mention busiest) traditional climbing areas, featuring more than 1,400 routes on four major cliffs clustered outside of the college town of New Paltz. But Sky Top -- privately owned by the Mohonk Mountain House, a 145-year-old luxurious Victorian castle resort that restricts crag access to high-rolling guests and Alpine Endeavors clients -- is utterly serene, and our group is alone on the lichen-covered rock.
A look inside the manufacturing process of the heartiest outerwear on earth, proudly made in Toronto, Canada.

Cotopaxi's Cusco 26L pack is a sturdy lifestyle daypack that lends itself to durable longevity, but still offers relevant technical features often overlooked in “lifestyle” packs.
Outdoor survivalists often teach the rough rule of three’s: humans can only survive three minutes without oxygen, three hours without proper shelter (given extreme conditions), and three days without water. H2O is the most suspect of the bunch. We asked an expert to explain the to main methods of treatment, filtration and purification, and recommend the proper gear for staying hydrated in the wild.
Shelter is the most important ingredient for wilderness survival. in his book, Bushcraft 101: A Field Guide to the Art of Wilderness Survival, expert Dave Canterbury, known for his role in the television series Dual Survival, takes readers through the basic, life-saving natural shelters that can be built without a tarp or tent.
Buck Tilton is a lot of things: part founder of the Wilderness Medicine Institute; part English professor; part Game of Thrones fan. He's America's go-to-source for backcountry medicine, and is currently helping the Boy Scouts of America rewrite their medicine curriculum, which he originally helped instate. We sat down with the man to talk outdoors.
Nicolas Müller is one of the best snowboarders on the planet, but you won’t see him on the podium at the X Games or in highlight clips on SportsCenter. The 32-year-old Swiss native started out as a competitive snowboarder, eventually reaching the top of the international circuit, but hung it all up to push the progression on the sport on bigger canvas: big mountain free riding.
This Week in Sports and Outdoors: the new Miss Reef calendar, inside a bike messenger stage race, the complete guide to building a campfire, what's killing triathletes and more.
Microsoft's newly minted CEO Satya Nadella has no shortage of challenges ahead, with revenue streams from Windows and Office thinning. But the Microsoft Health signals a more forward-thinking direction for the company: focusing on the cloud.
Bike messengers are a rough lot. So it’s not surprising that they were the early adopters of hardcourt bike polo, a tougher take on cycle polo. We paid a visit to the Seattle Bike Polo club at Cal Anderson park in Capitol Hill for some body-checking camaraderie.
The scenery is just one of the things that’s made L’Eroica one of the greatest organized rides in the world since Giancarlo Brocci founded it 30 years ago to help preserve the strada bianche, or white sand and gravel roads of Tuscany.
In 2014 bike parlance, L’Eroica is the ultimate gravel grinder, a 38-204 kilometer ride along the strade bianche (“white roads”) of Tuscany, Italy, with ascents steep as 23 percent grade and sketchy, sandy downhills as a reward for the hard work. Unlike the Dirty Kanza, though, you won’t find riders toeing the line in Gaiole in Chianti with carbon bikes, electronic shifting and hydraulic disc brakes. L'Eroica's done old school.
This Week in Sports and Outdoors: the heretic of bike fitting, an inflatable jacket, bacon-wrapped trout and more.
A soft, supportive sleeping pad turns going-to-ground into camping and sleep into slumber. Sea to Summit’s Comfort Plus Insulated Sleeping Mat promises big comfort and insulation without sacrificing portability. We took one for a few nights under the stars to find out if it delivers.
As far as recreation goes, heli-hiking is expensive. But it's also a means for everyday folk to access remote, sometimes impossible-to-reach parts of the world -- like the peaks of the Tantalus Range in British Columbia -- in a four-minute helicopter ride, instead of a four-day slog. It's only when you see the other side of the ridge that you realize you'd never tasted a wild berry or truly seen the color blue (reserved only for the types of lakes hidden in the mountains).
Giant has emerged as a super power in cyclocross with weaponry that puts it ahead of the pack in the form of the TCX Advanced Pro 0 ($7,450), a fierce machine that’s fully strapped with everything that’s changing the game.
You must have a finely tuned engine to compete in Cyclocross, but highly polished techniques can save you huge amounts of time over the course of a race. UCI cyclocross World Cup overall champion Lars van der Haar put on a clinic for us in Los Angeles, where he recommended polishing these five skills to boost overall 'cross performance.
Slight at 5’7” and 128 pounds, Dutch cyclocross star Lars van der Haar, 23, wields heavyweight power at the races. He rides with a style so explosive that it inspired American cyclocross fans to coin the phrase "Go van der Haarder". Like Belgian Sven Nys before him (#svenness), van der Haar has transcended the bounds of the sport and stands perched on the cusp of becoming a legend.
This Week in Sports and Outdoors: San Francisco bans Lorde, jumping determines athleticism, Messi v Ronaldo (plus Suarez), the fight for Colorado rivers and more.
