Bad weather, bad cold, bad day … we can appreciate that even the most hardcore outdoor enthusiast needs some down time inside once in a while. Check out the new Games section on our website, where you can take quizzes to find out what kind of tree personality you have (sturdy oak or flirty palm?) and what your packing habits say about you.
If quizzes aren’t your thing, try the bottle crusher game: Using the hard core soles of your virtual boots to destroy as many plastic bottles as you can is dangerously addictive.
Those of you looking for games with greater goodness, check out our Earthkeepers virtual forest. You create the forest, invite your friends to join you there, and plant virtual trees. For every tree you plant in the virtual forest, you’ll help Timberland plant a real tree in Haiti. And isn’t that better than any trinket you ever won at the arcade?
Click here. Play now. It’s all fun and games until the next snowstorm takes your power out.
The scene at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival hasn’t been all snow and celebrities (although apparently there’s been loads of both) … at the Timberland booth, festival-goers are invited to make their own personal pledge to help preserve the environment and protect the outdoors. Here’s Amanda with a show and tell:
And, here are more of our favorite pledges that have come in at Sundance so far:
Inspired to make your own Earthkeeping pledge? Share it with us here. And stay tuned … the curtain doesn’t close at the Sundance Film Festival for a few more days, and we’ve got lots more to share. You can find additional videos and photos from our Timberland team’s Sundance experience on the Festivals page of our website.
According to our product development team, “gnarly stuff shreds footwear.” That’s a very cool way to say a challenging climb can really ruin your shoes. That’s why they created the new Pathrock:
Whether you’re going … um … smearing … or on a less arduous adventure, the Pathrock Collection of footwear is lightweight, durable and traction-packed enough to protect you against the gnarliest of stuff. See for yourself.
Attention, winter gear lovers: in honor of Timberland’s 4th consecutive year as the Official Footwear and Outerwear Sponsor of the Sundance Film Festival, SNOW magazine is giving away Timberland gear to one lucky reader! Visit SNOW’s website to enter, and hurry up: contest ends January 30th.
If you’re lucky enough to be in Park City next week, stop by the Timberland booth to say hi! We’ll be offering special giveaways and showcasing our latest products. And if you can’t be there in person, check out the Festivals section of our website — we’ll be bringing you regular updates, photos and videos from the 2012 Sundance Film Festival all week long.
What? There’s no rule that says you can’t enjoy the present (in all its icy, snowy, freezing glory) and still look forward to the future. And when the future includes light, bright styles like these, you might just find yourself hoping for an early thaw.
We teamed up with Outside Television to talk with Jesse Davenport– an extreme skier, mother of 3 and Aspen local who loves winter weather as much as she loves her job as a ski patroller. And really – what’s not to love?
You don’t have to live slopeside to share Jesse’s enthusiasm for everything that’s wonderful about winter; declare your own personal snow day and then go outside to enjoy it! Really, go. But be sure to gear up first.
