The Vermont Move and getting out with Crescent Moon and St Moritz

We have successfully moved the warehouse and customer service functions to Vermont! Soon the team will be hosting visitors in our new retail location just outside of Stowe, Vermont, but now that much of the heavy lifting is behind us, we're eager to spend some time in the great outdoors trying out some great snow gear!

Right now we're most excited to don our Crescent Moon snowshoes and get on the trail! Crescent Moons are super cool snowshoes. They have been most recently recognized by Backpacker magazine as the "best binding" in snowshoes with "unmatched comfort, stability, and ease of use." And Crescent Moons are made using environmentally friendly manufacturing practices. The snowshoes are made with materials that contain NO PVC (polyvinyl chloride), and the company uses 100% wind powered energy in its Boulder, Colorado-based factory and office. We like that the Crescent Moon team is not outsourcing snowshoe manufacturing to China, and that they strive to recycle and reuse nearly everything, including coated fabric scraps, aluminum, stainless steel, polyurethane and HDPE parts, cardboard, and office materials. They'll even take back old snowshoes for a small fee to recycle the parts! What more could an outdoor enthusiast want?

At, we hope your new year is filled with great adventures in the outdoors! Happy 2010!
