FITNE SS

Winter approaches and Earth tilts hard on its axis, sending the late autumn sun rolling low along the horizon, bouncing atop distant mountain tops until it falls beyond their shadows. Soon, we’ll step outside to find the season’s first cold front, coursing a parched landscape to reclaim the margins between the wild and paved. Winter brings the wilderness down from the mountains, its veil turning the backyards, neighborhoods, parks and streets into fresh, new landscapes to explore. This winter, embrace the quiet adventures far and near, reveling in the wilderness of winter. 2013 will be a winter of discovery, as hallmark Atlas ingenuity provides fertile opportunity to spread the Atlas Cold Front further than ever before. Whether those discoveries occur beyond rugged summits or wait just outside your front door, Atlas offers a diverse line of innovative new tools uniquely tailored for the adventure at hand. Discover new summits this winter with the improved binding on our new, lighter weight Aspect, or merge your exercise and winter recreation with the new Atlas Fitness snowshoe. From new frontiers to better fitness, Atlas innovations continue to spread the Cold Front to new populations. As members of the Atlas Cold Front we remain committed to the discovery of winter on foot, and through ingenuity and outreach we embark to introduce new participants to the wilderness of winter, wherever it may be.
