In 2012, I received a box on my doorstep filled with Columbia Sportwear gear and a question: Are you in? YES, I enthusiastically said.
We are used to testing gear in the wildest conditions. This invite was a new level. Ten people were flown to Park City to test the latest gear while #tryingstuff.
Getting outside with 10 fellow snow sports enthusiasts and trying new things was an amazing experience. I've always loved Columbia gear, and loved being able to fuel my outdoor passion with gear that will withstand the test of time.
