Sometimes it's the little things that can make a big impact. The outdoor state includes all of us - skiers, bikers, runners, climbers, etc. Make a pledge to vote this fall in support of protecting this beautiful planet we call home.As members of the Outdoor State, we know a thing or two about the importance of margins. Whether it’s millimeters on a crimp or milliseconds at the finish line, we can’t deny that seemingly small efforts made at just the right time and right place can tip the scales from failure to success.
And we’re especially interested in the margins in Maine, New Hampshire, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada and Colorado, where just a few thousand votes will have a massive impact on protecting our outdoor playgrounds.
Ready to help us make sure that the 50 million members of the Outdoor State show up to vote this year? Head to the link below to make your pledge to vote and we'll follow up with more election info soon.

Huge congrats to @thenorthface #athlete @felipe.camargo for coming up with a creative way to climb and raise money for his local community in Sao Paolo. He climbed the height of Mt. Everest inside his local climbing gym in under 8 hours. Raised enough $$ to buy 1000 food kits for families struggling in the face of COVID. Please see link in bio to check out his climb and donate. ... See MoreSee Less
Hilaree Nelson is at Mount Sneffels Wilderness.

Three boys and a puppy on the summit of Mount Sneffels at 9:30am this last Sunday. Kids were total troopers ascending the SW Ridge in the cold and the wind and @jimwmorrison with #puppyinabackpack pulling off the 3rd class scramble. It was an awesome night under the stars, a little bit of 🌧, lots of critters and yummy 🍕 made for a fun 32 hours in the wilderness.

I know I shouldn’t say this, but I so wished I’d been blessed with sons who could join me on wilderness adventures. Unfortunately, my girls aren’t in the least bit interested in the outdoors. Lucky you to share such wonderful adventures and memories with the kids. Well done, Hilaree!
Is Mnt. Sneffels one of the taller mountains in the area? Have you ever been on top of the "Coors" mountain? My youngest son does a lot of biking and lives in Telluride so I was curious about the peaks in the area.
Did you come from Yankee Boy or Blue Lakes to reach the ridge? Blue lakes is great camping & fishing too, though a bit bear-y.
that ridge is a fun climb ... loose as all get out
Awesome Hill. We want to take the boys up there soon. Let us know if you do Wilson...
Was just up there a week ago. Love the southwest ridge! 💙
Excited to watch #LostOnEverest @NatGeoChannel Tonite June 30 9/8C. Here’s @m_synnott unclipping from the fixed lines at 27.000’ over massive exposure to head down to a GPS waypoint that could solve one of the greatest mysteries of mountaineering. New research indicated that Andrew “Sandy” Irvine may have tumbled and come to rest at that spot nearly a century ago. Was his body still there? ... See MoreSee Less
It was a very good program! Love seeing the search for Andrew "Sandy" Irvine.
The real story is that Irvine didn't die. He was rescued by a group of men sent by Chang, from the lamasery. It was Irvine who told Chang about Conway. Irvine has prospered well in Shangri-La & doesn't want to be found.
Though we couldn’t find it on NatGeoChannel Assume name of movie - LostOnEverest? Suggestions?
