Livin' Tiny: A Quest for Powder
Where would you go if your house were portable? Would you spend each night in a new spot? Stay camped in a discovered utopia forever? Or would you leave life as a vagabond to the experts?
The Outdoor Research Sidecountry skiers and snowboarders had to answer that question last year while traveling with their 112-square-foot tiny house in search of the ski bum's dream—the perfect ski area parking lot. Where would the snow accumulate and who would welcome the tiny house with open arms? Colorado, Utah, Washington, Wyoming and British Columbia were just a few of their stops. Truck fires, avalanches, overnight drives and snowy roads were just a few of their roadblocks, but the tiny house persisted into the unforgiving depths of winter and reached ultimate summits. With new friends, unforgettable powder days and warm, cozy evenings by the tiny house fire, the crew will undoubtedly never forget their expedition. Even though they were livin' tiny, it was an adventure of epic proportions.
We invite you to experience their transportable abode through Sam Giffin's Livin' Tiny, an honest documentation of the epic road trip and plan your next great adventure, however tiny or large.

Tiny House Tour: Episode 4
There is the discovery, when your eyes catch the first glimpse of a pillow line. Your mind quickly assesses the fun factor, believing how easy it will be to effortlessly drop from one marshmallow cloud to the next. Why wouldn't you ski these pillows? You start hiking. At the top, the world looks a bit different. Disorientation follows, as you realize you have no idea where those inviting little puffs actually live. They seem to have crept away leaving you standing with only a visual of the flat snow at the bottom. But you decide to drop in because you've got a feeling that this is something you can do, something that you'll love. You trust the pillows and your ability to make just enough contact with your skis that it counts, but not enough to stop the momentum in the graceful pillow line pseudo fall.
The moment when you point your skis downwards a flash image of the line appears in your mind. One pseudo-turn. Oooh, nice snow—this is going to be memorable. Then, maybe a jolt or two? A face shot mid-line? A flat landing at the bottom? And then it's over. You can't recall every detail of the line. Maybe you can't remember any at all. But the dream state is still with you. Just as it should be, because skiing isn't about overanalyzing. Once you've decided to ski a pillow line, it's see it, feel it, and go.

Best of Verticulture - Glacier and Iceberg #Bouldering 101: A Photo Essay. http://t.co/zKncfTJQLv
Via YouTube 5/17/2013 10:21:58 AM
For more than a decade, Outdoor Research Athlete Ambassador Beth Rodden proved that women could climb just as hard—if not harder—than men. She was the youngest woman to ever climb 5.14, climbing To Bolt or Not to Be (5.14a, 8b+) at Oregon's Smith Rock in 1998. She went on to co-establish the first free ascent of Lurking Fear (5.10 A3) on Yosemite's El Capitan in 2000, establish the first free ascent of Smith Rock's The Optimist (5.14b) in 2005, and redpoint Yosemite's Meltdown (proposed 5.14c) in 2008. At a proposed grade of 5.14c, Meltdown is considered the hardest climb in Yosemite and the hardest trad pitch in the United States. Beth's ascent of Meltdown was the most difficult ascent of any route by an American woman, and it remains the hardest trad route ascent established by a woman anywhere.
In June of 2009, Beth tore the labrum in her right shoulder while bouldering in Yosemite and subsequently reinjured the shoulder twice. For this elite climber, it was the most serious in a series of untimely and debilitating injuries including a broken ankle and a torn collateral ligament in both index fingers. In the end, Beth decided her best bet for a full recovery was surgery to repair the tear.
Forced to dial back the intensity and difficulty of her climbing as she heals, Beth says the time recovering from her injuries and subsequent surgery has allowed her to reconnect with the basic joys of rock climbing that first drew her to the sport. Says Beth, "Climbing outside with friends in some of the most beautiful places I can image—This is all I need."
"But I have to admit," she continues, "I definitely think about some of my unfinished projects."
At Outdoor Research, where Beth is now working with our design team to produce world-class rock climbing apparel and gear, we're all wishing her a quick return to the elite level she pioneered.
And if we know Beth like we think we do, we're sure she'll get there soon.
Watch "Climbing Back" to see Beth tackling her long road to recovery.

Everyone wants to be the all-sacrificing powder hound, vagabonding from storm to storm, with no possessions, a bank devoid of money, but full of powder turns. In some places, we know true ski bums. People who don't have cars, jobs, friends on powder days, or houses (or at least houses that don't live in trees).
We know Ben Price.
A true specimen, and maybe one of the last of his kind, Ben lives deep, deep in the Cascade Mountains, living out of his tree house, a map of the peaks engrained in his mind, and more of a dedication to making turns and finding adventure than anyone you'll meet in the mountains these days. And he does it because of one reason...wait for it...because he wants to.
Before the days of the glory and fame of the vibrant, mowhaked professional skier of the 90's to the energy drinking XGames youth of today, there were local heroes, people who skied because of the freedom and counter-culture found in the mountains. There was some risk involved in this—giving up everything to find solace in the powder. Comforts were gone, but enlightenment was found by the skiers living in the parking lot on the periphery of what was normal.
As a snow loving community we've come full circle and today we're all looking for that kind of hero. We need to draw inspiration from something unfamiliar, someone not constructed in the minds of a marketing team, but from a genuine icon—a legendary ski bum. We're looking for Ben Price.
We found him in Washington this December and parked our tiny house in his kingdom, following this splitboarding cowboy to the last frontier. Unexplored mountains and unknown pillow lines were found. And we also discovered that in the world of ski bums there's everyone else and then there's Ben Price (a true snow loving freak who would hate us if he knew we put him on the Internet).

At a rating of M12, Musashi is one of the hardest mixed routes in Canada. Ten years ago, Outdoor Research Athlete Ambassador and ACMG Alpine Guide Sarah Hueniken saw a video of the route being climbed by renowned climbers Will Gadd and Ben Firth. This April, she ventured into Alberta's Cineplex Cave and climbed it herself, becoming the first North American woman to successfully climb M12.
Watch a section of Sarah's successful ascent of Musashi in this teaser for "Everyday", a new film from AliasCinema, coming soon.

Outdoor Research Whirlwind Hoody™:
Even on warmer days, a cold alpine wind can chill you to the core. The lightweight and breathable Outdoor Research Whirlwind Hoody™ shields you from gusts while you're climbing high on the ridge of a 14er or eight pitches up the Diamond. The comfortable but tightly woven fabric feels as soft as a knit and stretches with you as you move in the mountains, so you can pull on this wind-resistant and water-resistant soft shell as you're leaving the parking lot, and you won't want to take it off until you're reaching for a cold one at the end of the day.

Every moment in the mountains lends an opportunity to learn. A lifetime education awaits those willing to explore, watch, and listen. And sometimes we meet purveyors of the knowledge, people who have made it their intention to understand the intricacies of the snow, and share what they've learned about the many varieties of a snowflake. These snow aficionados are our greatest educators, devoted to dissecting the element that brings skiers life and death simultaneously.
The tiny house arrived in Utah at the beginning of a storm cycle that would invigorate the mountain community with pow turns, while burying a weak layer in the snowpack that would require trepidation in the backcountry. In the two weeks the tiny house lived in Utah, many slides were seen and experienced by skiers and snowboarders across the Wasatch. Instead of playing our usual roles in this act, we became the audience and learned from a friend of the Utah Avalanche Center, Trent Meisenheimer, a passionate snow safety ambassador who grew up at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon.
Following Trent and his father Bruce (a man who should be put in the Ski-Loving Father Hall of Fame) into the special ski stashes of the Cottonwoods (yes, they still exist), we investigated our own capacity to learn and re-learn what we already thought we knew. You're never too experienced in the backcountry. And there is always something new to digest.
"Education is the process of living, not preparation for the future."

There's a place inside all of us, a space we try to find when the world is closing in. At Outdoor Research, we built a company from a feeling: the urge to get out. It's what drives us. We love coming to work every day and inventing ever better solutions to what nature throws our way. But we're more than just the gear we build. We're part of a community of friends whose lives are connected by our common need to be outside. Our tribe is devoted to exploring our outdoor passions and challenging ourselves in the mountains, water and deserts of the planet we love so much.
In 1981, a brilliant scientist and adventurer named Ron Gregg watched his frostbitten partner get airlifted off a glacier on Denali. He'd spent months planning a new route in the purest style, skiing 100 miles from the road to the base of the climb. Barely halfway to the summit, their trip ended with the failure of a simple pair of gaiters. Stubborn to the end, Ron refused a seat on the helicopter and descended alone for two weeks, pondering what had happened. Somewhere along the way he realized he could both fix the gear problem and devote his life to pursuing his passion for adventure. By the end, he knew one thing for sure: He wasn't going back to his old job.
Ron Gregg built Outdoor Research on the idea that life is an adventure, and the best gear makes it more fun. Though he died tragically in an avalanche more than a decade ago, his legacy remains at our core. In our world, it's not about chasing heroes; It's about being on the journey. It's not how often we get out as much as how often we want to be out that makes us who we are. Our goal is to do all we can to expand the tribe of people who share our belief that progress is spiritual and life is unimaginable without the quest.
And we want you in it, because we're pretty sure that the bigger our tribe gets, the better off the world will be.

For 20 years, Jailhouse Rock outside of Sonora, CA was an open secret. The cliff line held some of California's hardest routes. Climbers like Beth Rodden and Alex Honnold cut their teeth there, but access was sensitive. The approach trail ran through private property. While the landowner was supportive of climbing, he also asked that Jailhouse remain a relative secret. No guidebooks. No Internet spray.

All of us have mountains and lines that beckon to us every day, every season, every turn—Giants that loom in the periphery of our memory and thoughts. These monoliths sleep in our wildest dreams. And sometimes they creep slowly, after years of hoping and wanting, into our reality. These lines turn into days of our life that we'll never forget. They trump weddings, graduations, and other celebrations because they represent an achievement that others can't understand unless they spent that day with you, saw you make those turns, and felt what it was like to be in those places. These mountains and lines are officiators of greatness, if only in our own psyche. But they signify greatness that you'll never forget (and may never surpass) because being invited into the wild by a mountain is like heaven's doors opening for your welcome.
This December we were called into the living room of one of our favorite peaks, a mansion that stoops over our existence every day we've ever skied in Washington's North Cascades. Each time we've ventured into the threshold of this esteemed range, we've cautiously dusted off our shoes at the door hesitantly asking, "Are you sure?" But the mountain has been a gracious host. Polite and accommodating, serving up everything we'd hoped for as an intimidated guest.
On our 15-hour mission in December, the gates opened with an honest certainty. Snow stability and freshness we're expected as we climbed the nearly 7,000 vertical feet to the summit. After skiing that same distance in warm sunlight, but cold crystallized powder, back down to the valley floor, we were only half way done with the mission. We still had to go home. We still had to get back to the tiny house two drainages and another climb away. Our day and night we're not over.
Invitations can be just like that. You can't make assumptions based on your R.S.V.P. The party might go on for longer than you'd hoped. And mountains are surprising hosts, often temperamental. But, sometimes they let you slip out the back door, going unnoticed, like the quiet guest who sat in the corner, barely uttering a sound, but soaking in all the glorious sounds, smells, and sights, of people enjoying the time that they are alive.
