New bridges to crossAbout 5 years ago a few of us brainstormed during a backpacking trip to discuss an online adventure blog & magazine, which is how Adventure Insider was born. Today we're announcing a few changes to AI, some of which are pretty signifcant. Erick Pound, the driving force and founder of this little project is stepping down from day-to-day operation of the website and magazine, mainly due to a deployment with the military that will have him out of the country for the next few months.

 

Ski Cooper ViewThe crew over at Elevation Outdoors put together a killer guide to Colorado resorts, just in time for season to start. They tracked down locals to spill the beans on how to experience each resort like an insider. We'll be working on a few of these tips this winter :) Read the full article here.

Here at Adventure Insider, we go to great lengths to get our adrenaline fix.  For those of us based in NYC, escaping the daily grind can me difficult at times.  With this in mind, we had to ask ourselves, "How do we get the hell out of the city ASAP?" The answer came easy; learn how to fly.  The Northeast provides some of the most beautiful flying in the country, while offering some amazing adventure travel opportunities.  The best part of it all, besides the view, is soaring 5000 feet over bumper to bumper traffic on the infamous New England toll roads.  Throw some climbing gear, mountain bikes or surfboards in the cargo hold and adventure travel is limitless.  Adventure Insider has some pretty exciting stuff coming out in the near future, and we look forward to sharing every thrilling moment with you.

For an adventure traveler, a trip to Spain cannot be complete without visiting Basque Country in the northeastern part of the country.  The dramatic geological clash of mountains meets sea (reminiscent of Marin County, CA) provides endless opportunities for adventure sports, including surfing, mountain biking, rock climbing, kayaking, wind surfing, hiking and many more.  Basque Country's capital, San Sebastian provides the perfect Trifecta that makes me weak in the knees: great surfing, miles of cross country mountain biking and world class cuisine.  The streets of San Sebastian are a harmonious mix of antiquated cobble stone and sweeping modern plazas which are cluttered with bar and restaurants serving traditional pintxos and local wines.  San Sebastian will not disappoint the hedonist in any adventure sports enthusiast.

You are probably aware of the fire that has caused havoc on Colorado Springs, Colorado the past two weeks or so. According to National Forest officials, the source of the fire has been identified the cause is still under investigation. The Waldo Canyon Fire, as it has become known follows a string of deliberately set fires in the area so it probably will come as no surprise if the fire is determined to be caused intentionally. At it's peak more that 35,000 residents have been displaced and just shy of 350 homes destroyed. Many Adventure Insider contributors and friends were evacuated and rumblings of a few that lost their homes are abound. They are all safe at this time, something we are very grateful for. One photographer created a well put together time lapse of the fire nearly from it's birth. Watch in HD and be humbled by fire's destructive beauty.
