28,000 kilos of strawberries and an average middle-aged star…
…that’s the recipe for the start of Summer here in the UK! Wimbledon served up an exciting opening this week and the sun is doing its best to put on a good show. They say life is short. Well, it may interest you to know that like many of us, the sun is about halfway through its life span (only another 5 billion years to go) and at Countryside Ski & Climb we think the ‘middle age’ is something to be celebrated! Yes, the call of the sofa is strong, but trust us; your Sunday lunch tastes so much better after a great day in the outdoors!
At Countryside Ski & Climb we care about what's going on 'behind the scenes' with the brands we partner. Patagonia score high because they know that a healthy planet is necessary for a healthy business and they actively ensure safe and fair working practices for people all through their supply chain. So, if you're looking to refresh your summer wardrobe, then consider an organic cotton tee from Patagonia's range.

Salomon have been leading their field since 1947 so if you’d prefer your effort for Britain on Foot™ to be in a faster gear, then why not have a go at trail running this year? “It’s like road running but without the tarmac, traffic, taxis, pollution, flat roads…actually it’s nothing like road running…it’s way, way better!”
At Countryside Ski & Climb we’ve long been supporters of Salomon clothing and footwear and we love it because it looks as good as it performs. Pop in store for impartial advice on trail shoe fitting and what’s best for you from our range. Then all you need to do is click on salomoncitytrail.co.uk
Most of the UK was lucky enough to have some sunny days on both bank holiday weekends last month and we hope you got outdoors to enjoy it. If you’re wondering what to do with your family when the next holidays come around, then why not rise to challenge of the Britain on Foot™ campaign and use up some of their energy on a walking adventure?
“Living the examined life,” said Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, “is a pain in the ass.” Like many other things in human life, it began with one step that led to another and then another and it hasn’t stopped. Today, although Patagonia does not present itself as the model of a responsible company, they have come to realise their environmental and social responsibilities and are acting on them. At Countryside Ski & Climb we think there is a lot we can all learn from Patagonia’s example.
