Author: Outdoor Research

April 02, 2018

#SheAdventures is our dedication to empowering a community of outdoor women; to inspire dreaming big, overcoming challenges, and living an adventurous life, whatever that means to you. 

Since launching in 2015, we’ve enjoyed over 200,000 moments of grit, joy, type II fun, dedication, passion, and adventure in the wild places that make us come alive. Celebrate with us by tagging your posts with #SheAdventures on Instagram.

Here's how to participate in the weekly challenge series. Each Tuesday of this month (March 6, 13, 20, 27), we’ll launch a new challenge announcement in this blog article and on our Instagram. You’ll have until Sunday night to post your entry, and we’ll select the winner on the following Monday (March 12, 19, 26 and April 2). Each weekly winner will be awarded an Ascendant Hoody (worth $249). Photos can be golden oldies or taken specifically for the challenge.

While you’re at it, be sure to give us a follow and apply to be the 2018 #SheAdventures Scholar by April 8 for a guided mountaineering skills course and ascent of the Grand Teton.
