  Fun Activities: What makes a great outdoor dad?
Posted on Thursday, March 13, 2014 - 06:00 AM (400 Reads)
Outdoor Guides Apparently teenagers today are suffering from Nature Deficit Disorder. That means they don’t get out much when it comes to interacting with the natural environment. You know, trees and rivers and the like.

But what role models do today’s teenagers have? Pop stars, footballers, and er, well, I can’t think of anyone else? You don’t get to see any of them doing outdoor activities in the wilderness.

So, perhaps you should be getting your inspiration and encouragement from a source a bit closer to home – your dad. Does your dad encourage you to spend time outdoors? Do you enjoy spending time with your dad outdoors? What makes a great outdoor dad?

  Outdoor Jobs, Training and Volunteering: Ski Chalet Girl Jobs - How to fund your passion like Olympic Snowboarder Jenny Jones
Posted on Monday, February 10, 2014 - 12:06 PM (1656 Reads)
Celebrities Outdoors Jenny Jones won a bronze medal for Team GB in slopestyle snowboarding at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. Jenny is sponsored by Oakley, Relentless, Salomon and Pentax, but before you get sponsorship deals, athletes have to fund their own way to be able to train, buy their gear and travel to competitions.

To fund her love of snowboarding, Jenny Jones worked as a ski chalet girl in the French ski resort of Tignes. As a chalet maid, once the cleaning is done, you are free to hit the slopes with the free ski pass your employers provide. This is a fantastic way to earn while you learn. Will you become the next skiing or snowboarding champion?

Note: Many thanks to Team GB, BASI, Snowsports England, The Snowsports Industry of Great Britain, British Ski and Snowboard, and the Hemel Hempstead Snow Centre for the great information that is helping you to Get Out More.
