We’ll Be Right Back

GravityFed, Inc. is a web media company based in Utah. We registered the domain name in 1999, and built one of the first “social networks” in the skiing world at

We’re still in business, but there are no current happenings on the flagship (this) site. All of our focus for several winters has been on building a new Alta skiing community at

There are rich GravityFed archives, most of which are not currently accessible online. If you have any questions or would like more information contact Gary Marcoccia or Jesse Hoffman (

Remember this classic?

Farmer Dave TracksTime to start digging out the gems from the gfed archives. And yes, there are a lot of them. One of these days we’ll get to featuring them one-by-one again 😉 For now, enjoy the
Farmer Dave Profile
“Dave Van Dame is an Alta skier and a local legend because of his skiing technique. I first saw his unmistakable tracks in the backcountry in the winter of 1992 and thought, “What the hell made those?” It looked as if a snowmobile made about 40 turns side by side. It was not until we got closer that it became apparent the tracks were made by a skier. The snakey grooves were cut side by side and about a foot apart and took up an entire snowfield. I think I was with Matt West at the time and he said, “Oh, that’s the work of the snow farmer, he’s out here in the backcountry a lot…”

Kids Gear Marketplace

One of these days we’ll get around to re-purposing and posting all the legendary, authentic ski bum content that lives deep in the GravityFed archives (right now there is just a small fraction of the content/articles we have there). But until then, we’ll just keep you up to date on all the development news from the GravityFed Network of sites.

For instance, last post I talked about the gear on sale blog @ GravityDex…which BTW the way is out of the gate and running. With the site authority and legacy “The Dex” holds, it didn’t take long for Pingomatic and WordPress to do their collective magic. We’re trending phat with nearly 10,000 uniques for the web’s oldest outdoor directory in the first 8 days of September…and nearly a third of those visitors are coming from the brand new blog.

Next on the update band wagon is Kids Gear Outlet. That site has been chugging a long getting more and more authority over the past couple of years. But this week we axed Upside Over (they went out of business), but added Little Ruler (kids skate clothing) and Play Outdoors (kids adventure gear). Those two retailers join Backcountry, Patagonia and REI. This is a quality resource for active families looking to outfit their wee ones with kid specific outdoor products. Enjoy!

If you’re not into paying top sticker for your gear and apparel, then you should subscribe to this blog for up-to-the-minute gear coupons and more!

Check it out…I bet you’ll see some similarities to this blog 😉

We are in the process of rolling out another targeted outdoor gear site, this time specific to camping stuff, and more specifically sleeping bags. It’s just about ready for prime time, and some serious traffic. It’s yet another (and most recent) version of the continuously evolving format we’ve got for our product content network (see the GravityFed sidebar category on this blog). (SBO) features products from both and, as well as editorials, product reviews and compelling deals/promotions from an array of outdoor stores. This seems to be the most popular blog category we see across multiple sites. I wonder why. Hint: Retail is for suckers on the web. There is always outdoor gear on sale or daily deals to be had.

At any rate, check out all the closeout sleeping bags at outlet prices from the top outdoor industry brands. Let us know what you think!!
