Mark Abma and Chris Turpin’s Sweet New Crib

Sometimes in mountain towns we talk about "Peter Pan Syndrome" as a bad thing. But pro skiers Mark Abma and Chris Turpin have turned it into some serious #goals. The two of them bought some land on a tiny island up in British Columbia and using Abma's geodesic dome as the foundation have created what they call Concept Neverland. Their land has the dome for them to live in, a hot tub, a little beach hut made from Abma's rooftop tent, a bathtub on the beach, and oh, yeah, a disco ball in the dome. Maybe the coolest part? They're living almost entirely off grid and using only solar power and water from a system Abma set up himself. Many of the materials they've used to build the place out are upcycled or found which adds to the sustainability of the project. While it's all fairly new, Turpin is building up a yurt and they have many other projects in the works to help them become completely self-sustaining. 

Wow, this is a great idea! What a great tool. I love hiking and being in nature in general, that’s why a camp likes this would be superb for me.  Thanks for sharing this! Roof Repairs

Great Project! What I love about people who do this is their courage to brave the wild and isolate themselves from civilization. I myself can’t imagine living away from technology and a city. Kudos to you guys though! Septic Repairs

It looks more promising and comfortable compared to other normal homes lol. What’s great is that there’s a bath tub even. This camping house is absurdly cool! I hope I get that someday. Grease Trap Cleaning

Lol! it even has a disco ball on it. That’s a great idea for an outdoor crib! I wish someday I could try living out there in nature like this. Thanks for sharing this idea! Tree Cutting Services

This is a great crib for the outdoors. I never knew you could set it up to something this fancy! I had a new idea for this summer. Thanks for the share!

Tosh.0 Shows No Mercy for Roller Skiing

Tosh.0 Shows No Mercy for Roller Skiing

There are two types of people in this world. People who enjoy roller skiing, and people who like making fun of rollerskiing. Unsurprisingly, Daniel Tosh is in the latter category and had a few things to say about the sport. Despite his best efforts, roller skiing is the growing sensation sweeping the nation. In fact, I saw a few out on the local bike path the other day—spandex and all. Sorry, Tosh, they’re here already and they’re not going anywhere.

Skida Gets Back to its Roots with ‘Cross Country Revival’

If you’ve spent any time in a liftline this winter then you’ve probably noticed skiers and snowboarders rocking buffs, headbands, hats, and face masks in all kinds of fantastical colors and patterns. That my friend is the work of Skida, who’s garnered a cult following in the outdoor industry over the last few years. Despite their growing popularity, Skida’s origins are rather humble and began with a pair of cross-country skis in a quaint Vermont town. The story goes that the company’s founder

Most of us get at least a few seasons out of our trusty ski boots, and often will go to extreme lengths to make them last until the bitter end. Of course, when they’re done, they’re done, and that plastic has to go somewhere. Usually, they’ll end up in landfills or burned in waste-to-energy plants, but Tecnica has a new idea: what if that plastic came back into the manufacturing cycle to be used as secondary raw material. “The idea is pretty simple,” explains Maurizio Priano, Marketing and
