Photo by Fred Stanley. This time of year the visibility during a storm or the thinness of the snowpack can make skiing dicey. But snowshoeing is just right. Currently the best snow conditions are near Stevens Pass. Places to visit: Smithbrook Rd, Union Peak, Jove Peak, Lantham Lake, Merritt Lake, or Skyline Lake.
John Plotz says, "A lot of my regular climbing partners have 'regular' lives beyond climbing. I have never quite understood this, but whatever. It does pose a problem when I can't rouse them to climb with me five days a week. In those partnerless times, I am never denied by my Petzl Mini-Traxion." In this article, John explains the beauty of the Mini. He also lists its dangers.
Recently we put out an email to about 50 locals who we know to be serious about their outdoor passion and whose opinions we value. We asked them to tell us about products that they have used and tested extensively, that have become favorite products, and that they would recommend to others without hesitation. Here's what we found out...
I've recently come to the realization that I know less than I thought. While many fresh-out-of-college 21-year-olds will tell you that they can solve world hunger, I'm taking the humbler ground and admitting that I'm still pretty naive. Take first-aid, for example...

The Devils Backbone is gaining the reputation as one of the best mountain bike rides in Washington. We set out to verify that and, in the process, discover that Hell isn't always hot.
Thank goodness for motorcycles. Those aren’t words frequently uttered by the non-motorized outdoor recreation crowd, but in the age of shrinking Forest Service budgets when the agency’s legacy of trails is overgrowing and disappearing before our eyes, we need to be thankful for different groups that adopt trail systems...
This post tells where to find fabulous fall colors. It also shows some of the autumn photos we're sent. If you happen upon any great fall color changes and snap a few photos, feel free to post them with location details to the Red-Gold Report post on the WenatcheeOutdoors Forum.

There is nothing more aggravating than having an itch you can't scratch. It's usually centered around the middle of your back, dead center between the scapulae where it's impossible to reach. For me, Hyperspace has represented that elusive itch over the years, the climb that I have aspired to do in good style but...
The riding skill exhibited in this video left us slack jawed. With the gray days of November soon upon us and with days ahead when the trails will be too soft to ride responsibly, setting up some trials in the driveway that are suited to your skills...
