"La Cumbre unveils the reality of what it means to live as an amputee in the developing world." In partnership with our friends at the @rompglobal, we join world class mountaineer and wounded warrior @chadjukes on a heartfelt journey to shed light on a public health issue affecting amputees world wide.

Kathy Pico​, an Ecuadorian native lost her leg to Cancer at age 38. Reassessing her life's value, Kathy turned to alpinism. On July 28th, 2017 Kathy attempted Cayambe, Ecuador's 3rd tallest volcano towering at 18,996 ft tall alongside Chad Jukes and The Range of Motion Project.

Ptor here for the #ZEALTakeover. Another guiding adventure from last spring took me to a place I had dreamed of skiing for forever…Kamchatka. My co-guide Grigory Mintsev of Skiing in Russia snapped this shot on a dream day shredding the Viluchinsky volcano.

“17 years of ski-guiding and creating exotic adventures for my clients has brought me to some incredible places. Here in the Lyngen Alps of Norway, I have some free time to slash about some previously unskied lines with photographer Mika Merikanto. This January, I'll be back to be part of a ‘Decisions in Avalanche Terrain' course with Ascent/Descent Jan. 26-28.” —@skiherenow Photo: Mika Merikanto #lyngen #ascentdescent #mikamerikanto

@skiherenow #takeover! “Magic winter moment of when it all comes together for what I like to call anti-gravity skiing. What riding the lift in La Grave is all about.” —Ptor Spricenieks

@skiherenow #Instatakeover! I call it Sepvember. The high glaciers of the Parc National des Ecrins give us the opportunity to go for a big slog and ride some early season powder. Jean-Louis St. Arsenault is always up for the effort for a moment of glory. #parcdesecrins #sepvembersessions #exploremore

Hello, Ptor Spricenieks here (@skiherenow) for my #InstagramTakeover with Zeal Optics! Here’s a shot of my colleague Clement riding to work in the morning. Our summer job got us not only hella strong, but put in place the new best mountainbike trail ever that plummets from the top of the La Grave telepherique at 3200m all the way to the Romanche River down at 1400m. First person that can ride it without stopping wins! #FindYourZeal #PtorSpricenieks #SkiHereNow

We are excited to announce that our partner @MtnHub​, a rapidly growing community-fueled app for the outdoors, just launched a powerful new initiative.
Introducing #DataForGood, an initiative that gives back by sharing public data with wildland conservation groups, universities, non-profit organizations, avalanche centers and research scientists. And as of this week, Mountain Hub now features the ability to comment and like others’ trips and observation reports and re-share directly to social platforms. So go ahead, download their app, record your adventure, and contribute to the protection, research, and care of our outdoor playgrounds. #MtnHub

We joined @sassglobaltravel in Argentina this year for the third year of #ZEALWeek. @burnshimself was joined by legendary snowboarder @cholulaindahole as a guest coach. With a bunch of ZEAL-centric events, goggle demos for everyone and unreal conditions, this was the best season yet and proved to be the perfect testing grounds for our new #PortalRLS goggles. We’re already stoked for next year.
