Welcome to Plug In... Latitude's blog series recommending all our favourite outdoor, ski and snowboard content we have come across in the past month that we think you will love too!
We are always looking for fresh inspiration and exciting news from the world of women's action sport so we thought we would collate all the best bits for you to check out too! We are always up for suggestions too so if you have seen anything you think other action sports loving females might like too then don't hesitate to let us know... email@example.com!
A bit of a different one this month but we can't not include it because we just love Simon Reeve! Simon Reeve is a British author and television presenter. He makes insightful travel documentaries that both inspire adventure and uncover different injustices across the world from terrorism to climate change. We highly recommend you check out his back catalogue but we are currently enthralled by his recent series Cornwall on BBC Two. Cornwall is a place of beauty and adventure for many of us who enjoy getting outdoors and adventuring in the UK, but Reeve invites us to see that Cornwall is a lot more than surf spots and sunshine!
We recently listened to The Kitchen Club Podcast (which we highly recommend by the way) and they interviewed Grace Kingswell, a nutritional therapist and excellent person for an instagramstalk (we LOVE her!!) In the podcast she spoke about red light therapy and about how getting outside during sunset and sunrise can be great for your health. So we did a little more digging and found this fantastic article from the Yale School of Environment about how getting outside in nature can benefit your health... as if we needed any more convincing!
A firm favourite of ours to get us inspired and stoked on women in skiing and action sports is Grete Eliassen's podcast What's your line with Grete. X Games gold medalist Grete Eliassen is joined by some of the biggest names in sports to uncover their stories. As she says, 'there is always more to the story than the perfect line you see on the mountain.'
We have been listening to the back catalogue of episodes religiously whilst on our daily lockdown run / walk / dog stroll! We can't recommend enough!
'Honor the mountains, hone self-reliance, teach the young about both. Break trail when you can.'
We can't wait to join in this online virtual event with Patagonia and their ambassador Leah Evans and friends for a discussion about every angle of backcountry touring, from voicing the stoke to fighting for the winter.
