Day Trippin' - Kootenay National Park Edition

collaboration out & about

The Mountains Were Calling:

There's a chill in the air and the white stuff has touched down in the Kootenays. Here's to hiking peaks to the snow line, prepping our gear for the hills, and chillin' in wool socks. We recently celebrated the seasonal change with the launch of new apparel and an awesome day spent in Kootenay National Park.


We shot our latest collection of shirts at Vermillion Crossing/Verdant Creek with our talented photographer Justine Maguire. We spent the day taking in Rocky mountain views, admiring nature's mix of snow and Autumn foliage, drinking all the coffee to stay warm, and having a blast with our Kootenay models. If you're not familiar with Vermillion Crossing, its where the Kootenay Park Lodge is located and where the Verdant Creek wildfire exploded this summer. It was pretty humbling to be able to stand at the distinct line of flourishing green trees versus the scorched matchsticks of coniferous carcasses right next each other. Mother nature, the great equalizer!


We wrapped the day with a campfire on the Verdant Creek shoreline and devoured snacks from our friends at Mountain Bite and Naked Snacks, two BC businesses offering thoughtfully made snacking options that are healthy and tasty. Our favourites? The Peanut Butter Highway handcrafted granola bar from Mountain Bite and both the Wholesome Yogi and Wasabi-Me mixes from Naked Snacks for the ultimate sweet and savoury combination. We toasted to a successful photo shoot and warmed our bellies with celebratory shots of Bohemian Spirits Eclipse coffee liqueur. (We recommend drinking it straight up, on ice, for that instant warming gratification. So smooth!)


New Apparel:

We finally have a long-sleeved option in the shop, hurray! Our laid back long sleeve hoodie is awesome. We went with something light so that it could layer easily and will transition from Fall all the way to Spring. With 2 colour options and unisex sizing (XS-XL), we hope this is a piece that you guys rock on the hills and when you're cozying up on a chill day at home. 

More T's! We're graphic T crazy around here. Our Kootz Mountain T and Kootz Tree T's have arrived. These babies have been in the works ever since our popular kids Tree T launched in the Spring and we do love ourselves some sexy typography (design nerds)! 


Did you celebrate the Kootenay snowfall in a special way? Let us know!
