Junk in the Trunk: Puffy Skirts

Turns out, skirts are practical for the snow

On first impression, a skirt made for snow seems impractical. Unlike the chiffon and glitter ice-skating costumes I so naively coveted as a child, a puffy skirt is wicked warm and actually makes sense to wear in the wintertime.

VIDEO: Snowkiting in Jackson

Four skiers use wind to power themselves uphill

Thinlines is a short film documenting four Jackson, Wyoming, locals who are packing kites on backcountry ski trips into the mountains. The kites allow skiers to cover miles of ground and discover new places with untouched powder and incredible terrain, all of which are not accessible to backcountry skiers without multi-day treks. Snowkiting for multiple days pushed the group even further to some of the most remote spots on the continent. Influenced by Pascal Joubert from La Grave, France, the team is putting down tracks in steep, rocky areas and bailing into the air. Their next goals are to film snowkiting in Alaska, and show that it could be a wind-powered alternative to big mountain heli skiing. —Filmmaker Will Taggart

Junk in the Trunk: The Insulated Klean Kanteen

What sets the double-walled, vacuum-insulated mug apart from the average Flying J thermos

The solution, obviously, is a coffee mug, and to this end, I’ve gravitated towards the Klean Kanteen Double Walled Vacuum Insulated bottle and mug—or the Insulated, as KK refers to it on their website.


This Summer, Go Back to Winter

The season isn't ending, it's just getting started.

You’re probably thinking about summer now. There isn’t much snow left and the beach, a cold Tecate, some dream pop, a tan, and an ice-cream sandwich sound pretty damn nice. So does the singletrack, that girl you’ve been waiting to see in a bikini, and a mojito.
