Bonfire Free Range, a short film

True freedom is fleeting. Letting go in our modern society is something that few are able to achieve, even if for a moment. That’s what makes the idea Free Range as important as it has ever been.

To Bonfire, that idea materialized into a road trip of old. This past season, Parker Duke, Johnny Brady, Ralph Kucharek, Beau Bishop, Dustin Craven and friends found themselves traversing the Pacific Northwest from the hallowed ground of Mt. Baker to the solitude of the British Columbia backcountry. This is a journey that strengthens friendships and builds new ones; a tale of life crammed into an RV, where the smell of sweaty boots is only overpowered by the comfort of camaraderie.

Bonfire’s new 2016/17 outerwear collection is now live on their website, where the brand’s legacy meets a commitment to quality and function.

Our friends at Bonfire had some words to share on Free Range, as well. Continue below.

This is Bonfire Free Range, our journey about living with no rules, about going the places we want to go, avoiding the ones we could care less about and sticking around a certain spot because we don’t have a schedule and the place is firing.

On our first venture, six snowboarders, eight days and one RV started in Portland, headed north to Mt. Baker, crossed the border to British Columbia and the Coast Mountain Range backcountry, then hit up Whistler Blackcomb and finished up at Mission Ridge’s revolutionary Bomber Bowl Park.
