How To: Winterize Your Footwear

Whether you are trying to stretch another season out of your winter hiking boots, or just bought a new pair, boot maintenance not only protects your investment, but protects your feet.

Travel: Park City

It’s fair to say that if we didn’t love Park City so damn much, we’d have to hate it. This small town nestled into a crook in the Wasatch Range really does have it all—and by “all” we mean countless mountain biking, trail running, and hiking trails, three world-class ski resorts, a surprisingly burgeoning craft beer and liquor scene, and a snowglobe-perfect Main Street that intermingles haute cuisine and fur coats with shot-and-a-beer combos and torn blue jeans.
