You know that feeling when you’re stuck on a chairlift or heading down a mountain, and you want to check in with other members of your group who might be skiing elsewhere? Perhaps, like me, you put your seven-year-old in ski school, while your older child is barreling down a double black diamond with a barely-out-of-college, adrenaline-fueled ski instructor. Or maybe half your crew took the harder run, while you chose to cruise a cat track halfway across the mountain. How will you ever find them again?
Rather than shove your poles to the side, remove your gloves and risk taking out your phone, wouldn’t it be nice if you could just radio your family and friends? Well, you can. The Rocky Talkie Mountain Radio is the one ski essential we never leave home without. Each member of my family clips on a two watt Rocky Talkie, and we have instant radio connectivity, no matter where we are on the mountain.
The Rocky Talkie range pushes the boundaries of around one to five miles across a mountain (its line-of-sight is 25-plus miles), while its battery life can last up to five days without a single charge. Its specially designed lithium-ion battery can withstand frigid temperatures of up to -20°F with no effect on performance, while its rugged, lightweight construction features shatter-proof screen and thermoplastic case. Every function has a corresponding button, meaning there are no menus to dig through to change settings.
As if it weren’t easy enough, the Rocky Talkie also offers a waterproof hand mic for its radios. The accessory provides a remote microphone, speaker and push-to-talk button, making the radio setup even more convenient, particularly in tough conditions. Now we’ll be able to stow our radios in a dry bag or pack and keep communication right on our shoulders. I’ve never used the microphone, but I’m looking forward to trying it on my next trip.
For the more advanced thrill-seekers, Rocky Talkie just introduced its GMRS radio with IP67 waterproofing, featuring five days of battery life and 5-watts of power for optimal range. Designed and tested deep in the Colorado Rockies, the radio includes a specialized 1800 mAH battery that achieves around five days on a single charge, even in frigid conditions (-20°F). The maximum range is over 35 miles, however, twoto eight miles is typical in backcountry terrain. The radio even includes useful features for the backcountry, including access to 11 weather channels and NOAA weather alerts, as well as dual-channel monitoring and transmitting.
I hope that my family is never in a position to have to need our Rocky Talkie radios outside of attempting to meet up for lunch, but I’m grateful to know that should any of us get stuck in a dangerous situation, we’re all

On a steeply pitched road in Grosses Walsertal valley, it was snowing – heavily – as if the heavens had shattered. I was two hours west of Innsbruck, deep in the Alps in midwinter, but the view was free from the rows of snow-laden hotels, après-ski bars and resort chalets that I was used to seeing on previous ski trips.
Winding through Slovenia’s Julian Alps, it’s easy to miss the signs to the Vogel ski centre and carry on driving. The cable car and car park are concealed deep in woods above beautiful Lake Bohinj – a deliberate policy to keep the landscape free from tourist clutter and visible ski infrastructure. The result is one of the most natural skiing areas in Europe.
The Grand Canyon, the Napa Valley, New Orleans — the United States' biggest draws need little in the way of introduction, having long captured imaginations across the globe. But in some ways, big isn't always best, at least where carbon footprints are concerned — and there are ways to take in the country's greatest hits without the correspondingly great environmental cost. From kayaking the Everglades to going electric in Washington, DC, here's how you can tread lightly while still enjoying the very best of the US.
When my husband and I started toying with the idea of taking my teenagers on a whale-watching expedition cruise, we had no idea what to expect. While we’d cruised on several major cruise lines in the past, hopping on a 100-passenger ship run by National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions felt far different than anything we’d done before.
South Korea might not leap out as the obvious place for a road trip. The country's superb public transportation means a private vehicle is rarely necessary, and the traffic in Seoul can make you question the point of the open road when you spend so much time at a standstill.
