Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show 206 - Snowbasin
Back to the river and the comfort of shade and beer on Slackwater's patio. Episode 206 features an awesome interview with Snowbasin Resort's power marketing duo Samantha and Tess. Summer is loaded with activities on the mountain including the uber-popular Blues Brews & BBQ FREE Concert Series. Definitely a great way to spend a lazy sunny Sunday afternoon.
We run through upcoming EVENTS and NEWS items, as well as Gear Junkie's Psicobloc Climbing Comp experience in the rain. Oh, and the abandoned beer cart. James also covers a couple cool new gear items he discovered at Outdoor Retailer

Ahhh, it's that time of year again, Summer OR, the greatest party in the outdoor industry. I mean, the highbrow gathering of outdoor industry professionals clinking Stanley shot glasses of fine whiskey lemonade over conversations of comparitive cuben fiber products, recent epics, and athlete sightings. It's a fast and frazzling 4 days of wicked awesome gear, friends, and beer. All the beer. And, yes, sometimes whiskey. But, mostly beer.
It took us 2 weeks to get this one right, but then we nailed it! From down by the Ogden River to the top of Powder Mountain, we spent time with full-time van-lifer, Jake Nelson, in The Vansion, discussing the realities of van life, how to build out your own van, and van hacks.
