‘Public Trust’ Explores the Fight for America’s Public Lands

Even though our public lands are loved by Americans all across the political spectrum, they’re under threat. Now more than ever, extractive industries and money-fueled politicians are trying to strip away protections on large swaths of land throughout the United States.

RELATED: Make a Plan to Vote with Protect Our Winters

Patagonia's latest documentary Public Trust dives headfirst into this fight by exploring three heated conflicts in our country: the fight for a national monument in the Utah desert, blocking a mine in the Boundary Waters, and preventing oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Each fight represents what’s at risk and why it’s important to be speaking up. If you want to see our nation’s public lands protected for years to come, be sure to use your voice by voting this November in the general election. Protect Our Winters has a great tool for making a plan to vote, which you can check out here.

Very nice article about the Documentary ‘Public Trust’. If you enjoy the film please also listen to our podcast with the film’s Director and Producer, David Garrett Byars and Jeremy Rubingh to talk about the film and their goals.

It’s essential that we fight for their protection by preventing the slashing of the Bears Ears National Monument in Utah, fighting the potential permanent destruction of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnesota, and stopping the de facto sale of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—one of the last wild places in America.

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

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
