Gender can be one of the greatest perceived barriers in getting to and appreciating the wilderness. Learn from two licensed female guides how to overcome everything from safety concerns, to hygienic concerns (you know what we mean), to outdoors skills that look hard, but are really much easier than you think.

About your host:
Columbia Sportswear Company was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, making gear so that Pacific Northwesterners could enjoy the outdoors longer. At the helm for over 45 years has been our Chairman, Gert Boyle. Her Tough Mother ethos has grown Columbia into the global sportswear company that it is today—still based in Portland, still making no-nonsense apparel and footwear to protect you from the elements.
TESTED TOUGH PROMISE: Mrs. Boyle once famously said, “It’s perfect. Now make it better.” Her ethos is what charges us every day to make gear that is TESTED TOUGH. TESTED TOUGH is the guarantee that every Columbia product has been tested in the harshest conditions Mother Nature can muster. Not just by the Boyles, but by every Columbia employee, day in and day out. The entire company carries on the Boyle family spirit, always designing and testing products to keep you more protected more of the time.
