Here at Kelty, when we’re not busy designing and building some of the best outdoor gear in the industry, we occasionally like to get out of the office, stretch our legs, and live the “Built for Play” mantra we preach everyday! For most of us, getting lost in nature and enjoying the greater outdoors is an integral part of our lives, and is what drew us to the outdoor industry in first place.
Recently, the team went on an adventure expedition in the backcountry outside of Vail, CO where we were lucky enough to share our stoke of the outdoors with some awesome new friends! The trip consisted of outdoor enthusiasts from all over the country—from Breckenridge and Denver locals, all the way to Chicago and Charleston natives. Our goal was simple: to share our love of backpacking, camping, and the beautiful Rocky Mountains right out our back doors with our new found friends.
Come along for the ride and experience a backpacking trip combined with a true Colorado classic; one of the 10th Mountain Division backcountry huts, the Polar Star Inn. The group got to test out some of the latest and greatest Kelty gear, and everyone quickly became a team, cheering each other on during our day hikes and cheers’ing each other with a cold one over the campfire at night.
Here’s to another great trip!
