Weekend Warrior - Videos To Get You Stoked!

Surprising as it may be, my work here at the Institute could very well be described as a desk job.  Don't get me wrong, I am so thankful for and truly enjoy my work; sharing the mountains with individuals I wholeheartedly believe is my "raison d'être."  It may seem glorious to be talking on the phone for hours about people's climbing goals, or writing email after email about the next big expedition we have coming up; however, I'm still on the phone all day and writing emails all day.

We here at the institute live for the weekend just like you do, and try to mix in a little climbing or skiing every chance we get.  The employees over at Outdoor Research down in Seattle are obviously in the same boat, as this video so clearly shows.

Needless to say, by the time you are watching this - I will already be on the slopes.  If you'd like an idea of where I will be, watch the following video.  Just please know, that I will have two planks strapped to my feet, not one.  Also, I probably won't be riding a lift.
