Care Less, Do More. – E9 – Ingrid Backstrom 

Ingrid Backstrom by MP

Ingrid Backstrom has been a professional skier for the past 20 years. She is a pioneer for women in free ride, for women starring in films, starting a family as a professional skier while maintaining sponsorships, and one of the most humble and down-to-earth people. Ingrid has won best female performance 5 or 6 times, which I think is a standing record, and took home reader’s choice year after year for a total of 9 times. She filmed with Matchstick Productions and was a staple in the film. She has the first descent on Red Domain peak in China, has been to the summit of Denali, attempted to ski Gasherbam 2, and has a running list of firsts Baffin, Greenland, and Antarctica. Her latest project is the Approach 2, a must-watch film.

Where did I get the name Care Less, Do More? It’s a thought that I have often meaning care less about what people think of you, the noise, the chirping on social media and just do more. Get outside, put your phones down, and do more. 

Care Less Do More Ingrid Backstrom – brought to you by:

Darn Tough – Name says it all. Darn Tough Socks from Vermont, are precisely that. Merino wool and guaranteed for life. Treat your feet, you animal.

Arcteryx – No matter how you try to pronounce it, Arcteryx means excellence. Born in and for the Coast Mountains of BC, their apparel was truly built to test all conditions the outdoors can throw at you. It’s this Mountain Effect that has produced some of the toughest most versatile apparel for your next outdoor expedition.

Peak Skis – If you thought there were enough skis already on the market you were wrong. There’s room for new skis on the block when they bring something new to offer and that’s what Peak Skis are doing. Bode Miller incorporates 30 years of design acumen into designing skis with the knowledge that great skis aren’t tough to ski on, great skis are fun to ski on!

Anon – Look cool, see better. Anon helmets and goggles are the perfect pair for your skull this skiing and riding season. They are sleek, stylish, and lightweight with the durability you would expect as part of the Burton family.
