On the Road with Solitaire Episode III: The Raptor

Just as I was starting to wonder when the next episode of On the Road with Solitaire would bless us with its presence... BAM! It blows onto my desktop like a breath of fresh Andean air!

With 12 shorts coming our way in this kind of quality, I can only imagine what the full-length film is going to deliver! Enjoy On the Road with Solitaire III: The Raptor.

Benchetler and the Boys Killing it in AK

It's no secret -- AK can either make or break your career...and your wallet. You either get to sit for weeks throwing money into the rotor blades, not skiing and learning a lot about patience and solitude, or in this case you fly up and score the minute you step off the plane.

High Times on Big Spring Lines

You might recall the last time that Team CLIF BAR ski mountaineer John Morrison and Christian Pondella came to life together on the Team CLIF site. For a tiny refresher, it was the INCREDIBLE HULK story. No small feat in itself; skiing both couloirs of the Incredible Hulk back to back with Team Clif Telemark skier Lorenzo Worster and Nate Greenberg. With the inspiration that only another great day in the sierra high country can bring, this dynamic duo teamed up once again, this time with their sights set on the ever illusive Split Couloir on Split Mountain 14,058'. Read on to get a taste of the adventure in Johns' words and all the photography love coming from none other than Christian himself.

Team Clif Bar Welcomes a New Surfer to the Mix - Meet Pete Devries

This year Clif Bar & Company has been proud to be one of a few founding supporters of Innersection, a project created by surf film legend Taylor Steele and Surfing Magazine editor Nathan Myers. Chances are that if you surf and like to watch incredibly beautiful footage of people totally ripping, then you probably already know about Innersection. If you haven't heard of it (or simply don't fancy yourself a surfer), it's high time you treat yourself to a visual feast and get your finger on the pulse of today's most inspiring and progressive competitive surfing platform.
