Who doesn't want to be able to stay out longer, ski harder or tour higher? We asked Opus Athletics' own Jordan Glasser for Five Tips to step up our game in the backcountry for The Bird blog. The beauty is that we can do these movements just about anywhere...

Words by Jordan Glasser. Photos by Eric Poulin. I have owned and operated a gym in Whistler, BC for the last decade and I can't count the number of times I've been asked “how do I get fit for ski season?” It's a great question and it challenges me as a coach and trainer every year.

More from Arc'teryx athlete Patrick Vuagnat on The Bird blog in "Hunting For Snow In Lyngen"...
Words and photo from Patrick Vuagnat. Let me put this straight - I fell in love Norway, so this blog ain't going to be very objective. Within the past year I've managed three consecutive trips to this outdoor wonderland. If you're looking for a destination this place needs to be at the top of ...

Arc'teryx athlete Pia Nic Gundersen on injury, comebacks and her love of skiing at home in Norway on The Bird blog:
I actually knew - the second before the crash that set me out of play for almost a year - that it would happen. Spring skiing in Norway, a season ender with friends after a long and intense winter. I could have stopped, I didn't need to clear the cliff band; didn't need to prove anything to ...

Jason Kruk set out on a mission with a clear objective. 'Theoretical Objective' is his firsthand take on making the tough decision to turn around on that day and what he took away from the experience:
Words by: Jason Kruk | Photos by: Angela Percival. The realization it was no longer a ski mission was disheartening. We were deep in the central coast mountains of BC to film a video piece with my sponsor of an attempt to climb and ski the line of my dreams. The plan I had so confidently pitched ...

Story
Tagline
Delivering unrivalled performance, Arc'teryx quality conveys absolute confidence. Pursue Perfection.
Introduction
Arc’teryx was founded in Vancouver, BC, Canada in 1991, where it maintains its Worldwide Head Office, design studios, and main manufacturing facilities.

Driven by innovation, Arc’teryx was founded to build better gear. We didn’t just focus on incremental advancements, but on radically improving the status quo. We began with climbing harnesses and then proceeded to tackle packs and apparel with the same single-minded obsession for creating the lightest, best performing, and highest quality products available. To realize our vision we’ve created groundbreaking new construction technology, developed paradigm-shifting designs and harnessed major fabric technology developments.

The resulting deluge of recognition, and mimicry, has cemented our reputation at the pinnacle of the outdoor world. Our designers strive not to better the competition, but to challenge assumptions about how outdoor products should be built. Their visionary thinking is fused with our proprietary construction processes and our unrivalled craftsmanship to create the best outdoor gear made. Regardless of product, by selecting our brand you're insured that your Arc’teryx product will be one of the most innovative and superbly crafted packs, harnesses or mountain apparel pieces available.

As the next season arrives, we continue to raise the bar for the industry by introducing superior advancements in fit and fabrics, and revising and developing new products. A concentrated mountain core quests for new horizons, and we work feverishly to supply innovative solutions. We refine, tailor and hone until revolutions emerge. Intrinsically linked with the future, we passionately stoke this evolution in action.
