Alison Gannett: A MoveShake Story

November 13th, 2012

“We’re all dying deep down for a reconnection to something bigger.”

Alison Gannett is a mover and shaker to the core. A world-champion freeskier, Alison also runs three nonprofits, including the Save Our Snow Foundation, and inspires other women to fall in love with the outdoors by teaching them how to ski, mountain bike and surf with her Rippin’ Chix camps. On top of that, she’s a busy climate change consultant and speaker for businesses and audiences large and small. And more recently, she and her husband Jason, took the leap into farming the 75-acre Holy Terror Farm in Paonia, Colorado. Determined to walk the talk, she and Jason strives for 100% self sufficiency on the farm, taking big steps each year to make the world around them a better place.

Friday Round-Up: Ode to GORP on the Trail

July 22nd, 2011

Unless you’ve been living in a deep, dark cave… You may have noticed that there is a lot of cool stuff going on out there. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each Friday. Every month, we’ll be choosing a theme that fits with the Osprey lifestyle.

Osprey's social media mavens, Anna and Emily of Under Solen, get silly at the Portland's Saturday Farmers Market.

When summer hits in Portland, there are plenty of reasons to pull yourself out of bed early. The city’s bustling farmers market is one of our favorites. Keep the pack empty to fill with fresh goodness, throw a reusable mug full of coffee into your side pocket and you’re ready to go.
