Francis gets after it. He can send some beautiful lines up a route and also down a slope. He gets a lot of street cred for having a last name that starts with “Z” and he probably spends less than 17 total minutes indoors, each month.

If you ask Hayden to hang out, he might show up with a rope and carabiners. His interpretation of hanging out is often literal, and you can find him dangling from a rope, spending time on a portaledge, and sending 5.11s in his sleep.

His nickname is Denali. He has lived out of a van with his wife for the last 4 years. He is the person that you want with you if you ever encounter an avalanche. It’s possible that his secret powers originate from his majestically groomed facial hair.

Collin is one of those people who has likely purchased at least 3 things from every single department at REI... and done so within the last 6 months. He’s like the swiss army knife of the outdoors, covering the full spectrum of experiences.

Georgia… the land of peaches, a lot of football, and Mason. He spends his time romping around the national forests of the South, exploring the endless hills, rivers, and waterfalls that abide there. The dude seriously knows how to enjoy mother nature.

If you’re out on the trails in the Cascade Mountains and you look really closely at the peak of the nearest, tallest mountain around, you will probably see Amber up there, just having dominated that ascent. She simply gets it done.

If it is in Canada and it is a beautiful geographical feature, Brendan has likely shot it on his camera: lakes, rivers, mountains, trees, waterfalls, canyons, ridgelines, snowcaps, lookouts, viewpoints, and even the occasional suspension bridge. Go check out his stuff!

It takes about 3 seconds of looking at Eric’s Instagram feed to determine that he is an adrenaline junkie. If he’s not bombing down a run then he’s likely hanging from a cliff, camping on a sketchy precipice, or logging major miles in his Suburban on lengthy roadtrip.

It’s safe to say that Nate probably spends more time outside than inside; mountains are like a second home to him. Equal parts humility, enthusiasm, and dedication, this guy feeds off of the moments experienced while outside, enjoying the vastness of mother nature.

Megan lives where we all want to… in the Canadian wonderland of Western Alberta. Be jealous. Her backyard has the majestic Canadian Rockies, but she’s always looking for the unexplored, the unique perspective, and the unnoticed details.

Kevin’s middle name might be “Fresh Air.” He absolutely maximizes the fun to be had in the snow, on the mountain, on the trails, on the river, or on the lake. With Big Sky, Montana, as his backyard, he probably spends more time on the slopes than you do each Winter.
