OutThere Colorado, a media and marketing company, has launched an innovative web platform that opens up the Colorado outdoors to users around the world.
The seeds of the project began in January 2016 and it has become a comprehensive website devoted to telling inspiring stories, producing immersive films, and providing accurate data-based information on more than 12,000 outdoor destinations in the state of Colorado.
Cutting edge virtual reality 360 degree filming has transformed outdoor storytelling. Never been in a hot air balloon? Join us as we soar high above Colorado Springs. Always wanted to raft the Arkansas River? Jump in a boat and experience the rapids from your desk chair.
“Our goal is to create this immersive, content-rich platform from which people can explore and experience the Colorado outdoors,” explains Charles Roach, General Manager of OutThere Colorado. “To that end, we knew we had to try filming in 360.”
The most powerful feature of OutThereColorado.com is the Interactive Map. Use Colorado geography to filter destinations by type (i.e., Hot Springs, Campgrounds, Mountains) or by activity (i.e., Mountain Biking, Camping, Skiing/Snowboarding) to plan your next adventure.
But OutThere Colorado is more than trails and cool video! OutThere Colorado publishes articles that tell stories of people in the outdoors world and that bring depth to the outdoor lifestyle.
Features include people profiles of noteworthy outdoor industry professionals such as renowned landscape photographer John Fielder, newsworthy snow forecasting from Joel Gratz of OpenSnow, adventure ideas for snowshoeing in Rocky Mountain National Park, and a weekly “Girls that Shred” series highlighting women who inspire us.
