Backcountry  From first tracks with friends to relaxing fireside, our best times happen outdoors. This is a collection of our #Goatworthy moments. Share yours.

@kaitvanhoff and @samanthapleeeease arrived in #Thailand with only their backpacks and ready for adventure. They slept on the ground and used towels as blankets but it was perfect because they got to spend their days like this. Photo: @auttyshipp

You're doing backcountry spring skiing wrong if it doesn't include road walks, a sunburn, a trucker hat and yoga pants. 😉 Photo: @ac_hull

We are excited to be a sponsor of the @officialskitosea multi-sport relay race in Bellingham, WA this weekend. Stop by our booth and meet some of our Gearheads if you're in the area. Good luck to all the adventure racers!

We’ve created a special limited-edition T-shirt for men and women featuring artwork donated by photographer and artist @perpetualweekend depicting the Indian Creek Corridor in #BearsEars. $20 from the sale of each tee will go to @nature_org to support its work at the Canyonlands Research Center – link in bio. #MakeYourVoiceHeard

Backcountry Amabssador and Park City-based ultra runner Brian Tolbert (@not.quite.lost) ran support with Kyle Dietz (@theriverswild) as he took on the challenge of a continuous trail run covering 115 miles of wildly mountainous and volcanic terrain on the Waitukubuli National Trail in Dominica. See their journey on @grindtv - link in bio. #worldofadventure #discoverdominica

The day started as a kayak outing in Alaska until the boat captain mentioned to Backcountry customer @kyle_miller_ak how they often take out backcountry skiers. The trip then turned in to a ski touring reconnaissance mission. Next adventure planned ✔️ Photo: @savanahevans02

@seelyseeclimb stayed on top of this spire for a full 15 minutes in the freezing cold to get the shot, all the while hearing "wooos" from someone down below. Thanks for helping to build the hype "wooo" person (not pictured). Photo: @johnevansphoto

Trying something new and getting out of our comfort zone was a recurring theme on our State of Gold road trip. For Gearhead Ben Rabinowtiz (@roughnecknine0), a seasoned climber and alpine athlete, learning to surf was definitely a challenge. After getting worked by the waves over and over, he paddled out to Cam, a customer. Cam looked at him and said, “Ben, you can relax now. You’re in a safe space. You’re in the nest.” Ben smiled wide and just lay out on his board to catch his breath. It was reassuring to have Cam there, knowing exactly what he was feeling.

Spending time outside is at the heart of our community and employees alike, and our nation's public lands are often the setting to many special moments. Our National Monuments are currently under review; as a Utah-based company, Backcountry supports continued National Monument designations, in particular Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante. We encourage our community to weigh in and make their voices heard on this important issue, no matter your opinion.

When @hukesnow asked his girls what they wanted to do that weekend, they said, "Let's go on an adventure." So they packed up their gear and headed out to the Bonneville Salt Flats for some sunset paddle boarding and to Skull Valley to rock climb. Looks like the future generation of adventurers are already on their way.

Remember: safety is most important when choosing a campsite. Photo: @canon_capture35

A brutally early wake up call and icy conditions were all worth it to see the sunrise on the Middle Teton from the Ford/Stettner Couloir. Photo: @smileysproject
