"As the snow begins to thaw, temperatures rise, and Spring begins to bloom across the country, many prospective rock climbers are turning their attention to the mountains in anticipation of a summer full of action. But imagine getting to the base of a cliff, ready to get climbing, and realizing that you don’t have all the necessary tools to make the ascent - how frustrating!"

"As we near the end of yet another incredible skiing and snowboarding season, we wanted to take a minute to celebrate with some of our favorite photos from this year on the slopes. We asked the Pathloom community to send in their best shots, and we were blown away with what we received! We'd like to thank everyone who submitted photos over the past month or so, looks like you all had a great time up in the mountains!"

"As part of an initiative to maintain the unique and often delicate ecosystems found within National Parks across the country, rangers are implementing prescribed burns in various locations throughout the country. These controlled fires have long been proven to be an effective method of reducing the risk of wildfire destruction, reducing invasive plant species, and creating enriched soil to stimulate the germination of native seeds. There is evidence of indiginous peoples utilizing ‘fire as medicine’ in such a manner dating back thousands of years."
