outsidemagazine Lift tickets for $20, hot dogs for $1.50, and no snow-making machines. Quebec’s Mont Chilly is a true old-school ski mountain. Built and operated by 83-year-old Larry Hernberger, Mont Chilly has been in the Hernberger family for three generations since they emigrated to Canada from Europe after WWII. They only power up the handmade T-bar lift if there's good snow, and at least 10 skiers are ready to go. There are only 460 feet of vertical and four runs (named 1, 2, 3, and 4), but there is a surprising variety of terrain and it's usually covered in deep snow. Photographer @johnrathwell, who was there for opening day in February, gives us a behind-the-scenes look at this unique ski hill. | Full gallery @ OutsideOnline.com 1d

outsidemagazine The 150th anniversary of the first of ascent of the Matterhorn is coming up this July, and to celebrate, the folks at Zermatt Mountain Guides and @mammut_absolute_alpine partnered with photographer Robert Bosch to light up the Matterhorn and trace the route over the Hörnligrat ridge in a chain of lights, paying homage to Edward Whymper’s first ascent party. The mountain guides placed lamps along the entire route, lighting it up in the early dawn for a photo shoot. | OutsideOnline.com 5d

outsidemagazine Located near the Laos-Vietnam border, Hang Son Doong is the largest known cave on earth, complete with its own river and enough room to house a small city. Photographer @rdeboodt gives us a little sense of scale. Whoa. | OutsideOnline.com 7d

outsidemagazine A young farmer uses fire to selectively clear land in Haiti. A group of seven recently completed a historic run from Cap Haitian to Jacmel, crossing the entire island from north to south in nine days. Running a total of 230 miles, they averaged marathon-distances every day. @teamtassy2010 Photo: @taylorfreesolo | Full gallery @ OutsideOnline.com 1w

outsidemagazine Haiti is not usually perceived as a top international tourist destination. But in early March, a group of seven runners set off to show that the country is a place to be celebrated, visited, and invested in. With a relay team and a support crew, the group ran from Cap Haitian to Jacmel, crossing the entire island from north to south in nine days. Running a total of 230 miles, they averaged marathon-distances every day. @teamtassy2010 Photo: @taylorfreesolo | Full gallery @ OutsideOnline.com 1w

outsidemagazine Sometimes all you need for a great picture is a gut feeling and a willing friend. That was certainly the case for this image. Here, Atom Welch drops a cannonball from the upper deck of a random farm structure into a not-so-snowy field. Taken in the Rathdrum Prairie just south of where I live in Sandpoint, Idaho, this particular shot plays into the spontaneous humor that is a main ingredient of my photographic approach. A touch of humor in a barren landscape can make all the difference. #Viewfinder Photo: @woodswheatcroft | OutsideOnline.com 2w

outsidemagazine Photographer Andrew Querner hiked into Alberta’s Banff National Park to shoot Prince George, British Columbia’s Guy Lacelle free-soloing Fearful Symmetry, a 200-foot WI6 icicle that springs from a wall in Recital Hall. “It forms rarely and melts out early with the warm chinook winds,” says the 32-year-old Canmore, Alberta–based photographer. “It takes just the right combination of groundwater and temperature.” #tbt Exposure March, 2007 | OutsideOnline.com 2w

outsidemagazine Photographer @albertogvisuals hovered in a helicopter as Italian kiteboarder Simone Vannucci skimmed across less than a foot of water off the island of Mauritius, in the Indian Ocean. “That break’s called One Eye; it’s a very shallow reef overlooked by a mountain that appears to have an eye,” says the 37-year-old lensmen, who quit his job as a management consultant to set up shop as a photographer in upstate New York and Sardinia, Italy. #tbt Exposure March, 2007 | OutsideOnline.com 2w

outsidemagazine Fat biking is fun. That's one of the reasons outdoor writers Peter Koch and Jeremy Berger accepted an invitation from the team at bike components company @srammtb to get a taste of the fattie culture during the Global Fat Biking Summit in January. Armed with Beargrease and Bucksaws, the group cruised through some of Jackson, Wyoming's, most stunning terrain as photographer @amarcouxphotos followed along. We caught up with the group to figure out just how much fun big tires and hard-packed snow can be. | Full gallery @ OutsideOnline.com 3w

outsidemagazine Enough already with the questions about the best bathtubs in the world! We've taken it upon ourselves and made a list of the 9 best outdoor tubs this planet has to offer. Baines' Camp in Botswana, definitely on the list, features "star baths" on private wooden decks looking out on the Okavango Delta.
