Outdoor Life: Back 40 Outdoor Adventure

Outdoor Life: Back 40 Outdoor Adventure

At the end of August we had the opportunity to stay at Back 40 Outdoor Events in Brisco, BC. Back 40 is on a 600+ acre piece of land just over 20 km north of Radium Hot Springs. The camping area features a secluded trio of bell tents, with other amenities, nestled between two epic mountains ranges and views of the luscious Columbia Wetlands below.  Owners Katherine and Adrian are not only "glamping hoteliers" but avid outdoors-people who can help you plan almost any type of outdoor adventure you desire, suited to your experience and activity level. The Columbia Valley has many...

Summer Adventures Volume 1

Happy Summer y'all! I think the both of us agree, Summer is our favourite time of year. This summer feels extra special as COVID restrictions are lifting across the country and Canada is finally back in action. We have some fun activities planned together, as well as separately with our own families, and we will try to include you in them all. We have been behind in our blogging and photo diaries so hopefully we can deliver between now and September with some fun outdoor and Kootenay-inspired content. Let's take a look at July so far.

HBD KC! It's our 4th Birthday.

HBD KC! It's our 4th Birthday.

Year in Review and Our 4th Birthday     We are celebrating the online shop's 4th Birthday this month! We launched KootzCollective.com on a chilly February morning 4 years ago with nervous excitement and no idea where this brand would take us. Fast forward to today and we've accomplished and learned so many things running this business, with 2020 being one of our biggest tests yet! From working together and maintaining a business under COVID precautions to navigating (multiple!) TM and copyright infringements, we had a lot thrown at us. But hey, it's not the first time we've had major challenges and for...
