This article is all about the saying that the best times come when you least expect it! It’s already a given that this winter season in Europe has been very tough on us, skiers, splitters, snowshoers, you name it… You see, there is no better feeling, when winter arrives and good ole’ H20 starts acting

It’s usually all about the riding but we’ve recently had possibly the best tour of the year and it was all mellow uphills and descends. Our tour was the always fun Saxon Villages of Transylvania which is a two day bike/e-bike powered sightseeing trip with cool trails, amazing historic sites and fabulous scenery. Two lovely

Escaping the summer sun

 Wednesday, July 20, 2022

We had such a great MTB tour recently so we figured it’s worth a few paragraphs. Every time we have a very able and willing client ussually leads to a massive session! So our choice was one of our favourite ranges, the Bucegi mountains. Our itinerary had quite a cool combination of pretty uphills but

Days like these deserve an AMEN!

 Thursday, June 2, 2022

Sunday is usually the day people search for religious experiences so we did just that, on a MTB! As funny as it may seem whenever we do get the occasional day off we usually go back at it. This time we figured we could check out some new and off the grid trails. Check out

We can officially say we peaked!

 Thursday, May 19, 2022

There’s still snow up in the mountains to enjoy some spring riding/skiing. Our last adventure kind of tied a big red bow on the 21′-22′ season.

BULGARIAN Powder Days in Spring

 Monday, March 28, 2022

This is not your typical “powder in the first few words” type of clickbait. Our Bulgaria tour got us thinking that we must’ve done something right now or in a previous life because the snow was INSANE.We’re talking about fresh, deep POW, like nothing else. Oh…and add to that a few nights at an outdoor

Initial impressions are “Wow, that’s a shitload of gear…” and, well, that’s pretty accurate. So what are the options, find a cheaper, second

The Search for the Unexplored

 Wednesday, December 15, 2021

This entire THING, be it splitboarding, hiking, snowshoeing, you name it, is about discovery. Not just exploring the fabulous outdoors that lure us in every time but our inner self.   Going out into nature is not about an act of bravery or an ego trip. Corny as it may sound, it actually is about
