5 Best Ski Days of an Everyday Skier

Nov. 11th 2015

SCARPA athlete Doug Evans gets after it. A landscaper by trade with a few odd jobs scattered in there the rest of the year, he’s structured his entire life around snow sliding and face shots. His Instagram feed (@Dougtheskier) will make the weekend warrior drool. As of November 11, 2016, he’s already logged several memorable days in the Colorado high country extending his streak to 171 consecutive months of skiing. But to get the rest of us stoked for what we hope is to come, we asked him to recount his five favorite days from Winter 2014/15 while he was testing our award-winning Freedom boots. From epic deepness in Taos, New Mexico, to long summer-ski missions on the Front Range, he sets the standard for a passionate skier logging almost 160 days last season. Let’s hope this season shapes up as good as last.

160 days a year is a dream for some. It’s healthy to have dreams.

Expedition Pakistan: First Ascents in Far Flung Places

Sep. 14th 2015

During the summer of 2015 SCARPA athletes Graham Zimmerman and Scott Bennett spent two months in the Pakistani Karakoram in search of new routes in one of the world’s truly stunning ranges with one of the Karakoram’s most seasoned climbers, Steve Swenson of the American Alpine Club. The amount of planning and training that goes into an expedition in this corner of the world is massive, then everything has to line up just perfectly for the actual send. During this trip, Graham and Scott achieved two impressive first ascents including the Changi Tower (6500m) and a new route up the south face of K6 (8126m). We asked Graham to put together a short photo recap of the incredible trip.
