Share gear. Buy less. Ride more.

The Oütlas program aims to redefine what we winter sports lovers use and how we use it. It is a plan that transfers us away from a linear economy to a circular one that chimes with the natural world. It moves away from the status quo towards eco-friendly technology and infrastructure projects that can decarbonize our industry, from packaging to logistics and transportation to materials.

REGION 01

Scotland

This guide to Scotland features six mountain resorts, a selection of rental shops, repair stores, local mountain guides and points of interest. Not intended to be comprehensive, Oütlas present a discerning edit of our favourite spots to visit in the mountains.

Dedicated to sharing snow sports gear, accounts of adventure, innovation, style and discovery – the people who visit, contemplate, document and inhabit the outer edges of our home planet in action sports culture, fashion, in the mountain and oceans.

Exploring the infinite options of spaces in nature, adventure and style, for people who are interested in the greater world around them. To protect where we play.

Shred the Anthropocene

What if we didn't buy the goods themselves, but instead bought the service, favouring access and performance over ownership?

Our geological future relies on a multitude of solutions to the climate crisis. Human activity has caused unprecedented and in some places irreversible damage, we have little time to act. But act we must. Help us to compile the definitive list of rental and repair services and their respective locations.
