#goodtimesoutside: our favourites so far

We’re into December now, and if winter weather hasn’t hit your city yet, it appears to be on its way soon. Thinking of hibernating until spring? Not so fast – we just checked the forecast and there’s a 100% chance of good times outside year-round.

Each month, we’ll choose ten of our favourite Instagram pics that have the #goodtimesoutside hashtag and share them on the blog. From big-time outdoor inspiration to the tiny moments that make you laugh outside, check back to see how MEC members across Canada are exploring their backyard.

So whether you’re shredding through knee-deep pow, eating a killer sandwich with a view, training for your first 10K (with your dog as your running buddy), or getting up to whatever you get up to outside – we want to see it.

4. When I get that feeling, I want desperation-top-out healing. Keeping it clean on “Soap on a Rope” in Rocktown, Georgia.
