Orvis Presents: COPA

In her 14 years, Copa has been by the side of Orvis President Simon Perkins through myriad changes--Montana guide life, a move to Vermont, marriage, children, and more. She has been a constant source of love and companionship, and as she nears the end of her life, Simon reflects on how much their relationship has meant to him. In the fall of 2020, he wanted to give her a chance to return to the Montana prairies of her youth one last time, to run through the prairie in search of sharp-tailed grouse.

Blackberry Swirl

Welcome to summertime in Vermont where miles of singletrack and the ever-rewarding, post ride creemee await. Follow along as local mountain bike pros, Corinne Prevot and Ella McAndrew flow through some of the best trails in the Green Mountain State as the fabled maple jungle performs its annual seasonal change from a lush, green oasis to a stunning show of fall colors. Corinne and Ella's unique style and energy blends together as they encourage each other to push their riding limits and enjoy time spent together in their home state.

Una Razón Para Pescar

Dan Diez loves to fish. It's the reason why he spends many long nights under bridges in Miami fly fishing out of a canoe for giant tarpon. On the surface, his passion flows from the thrills and wonder of a heart-pounding experience with rod and fly that connects him intimately with the natural world. However, at a deeper level, the passion is rooted in a story—a story about Dan and his grandfather—that involves traditions born in Cuba, political imprisonment, the search for a new home, and a relationship with water that symbolizes a freedom often taken for granted. Presented by ORVIS. Created by Simon Perkins and Henry Miles

Force GT-E Launch

We gave our full suspension line a little EFI (Electronic Fun Injection) to go big with the Force GT-E range. This is a “performance-enhancing” version of the podium proven LTS suspension platform. With 29” wheels and 150mm of travel, the Force GT-E range is so much fun, it should be e-legal.


After an early discharge from the military, Wes Hodges did not know what to do, where to go, or who to turn to. That was until he joined a Project Healing Waters retreat to the Rose River in Virginia and was introduced to Ed Nicholson – the nonprofit’s founder. From then on, Ed took Wes under his wing and the two developed a long-lasting relationship centered around service, the outdoors, and most importantly, friendship.


“As you get older, you’re still a kid at heart.. Your body might be leaving you but you’re still thinking like you did when you were younger. I think associating with people like Wes, the younger guys, and ladies, it keeps you younger yourself.”
