We had the good fortune of connecting with Andraya Grangroth and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Andraya, how does your business help the community?
Women hunters is one of the largest growing demographics in the world today, and Ridge Patrol is here to fill the need for clothing that performs no matter what trail you take. We are a sisterhood of outdoor women, whether we climb 14 thousand foot mountains, hunt for wild game, or simply enjoy various outdoor activities, the community of women at Ridge Patrol all have something in common.
What should our readers know about your business?
Ridge Patrol is a women’s outdoor and hunting clothing line, made by women and inspired through hunting. We are so honored to create such beautiful clothes, that perform in all elements and terrain for any outdoor adventure. Our clothes help get women into the great outdoors, and they feel and look good when wearing them. We are fairly new in the industry and we have learned that it takes consistency to build credibility for our brand. When wearing our clothes we hope you feel confident and inspired to hunt harder and further, through one piece of clothing at a time. We hope to bring women together no matter their body size.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Upon arrival to town, we would get settled into a small cabin at Avalanche Ranch, just outside of Carbondale Colorado. We would spent the evening catching up and enjoying the private hot springs that are surrounded by big mountains. The next day we would pack up and head to Glenwood Springs and go rafting on the Colorado River, starting at the Shoshone rapids. While floating along the river we will pull over at the natural hot springs and enjoy soaking in the beautiful Glenwood canyon. We would continue our float down to town and enjoy dinner at Colorado Ranch House, located in downtown Glenwood Springs. The next day we would lace op our tennis shoes and summit Mount Sopris, the Mother of the Mountains located in the heart of the Roaring Fork Valley. On our way down from the summit we will spend the rest of the day at Thomas Lakes, swimming and relaxing and then we would spend the line sleeping in our hammocks under the stars. The next day we would go to Yampa Spa get massages and enjoy the vapor caves. The next day we explore many miles of train on our mountain bikes, followed up by beers from The Brew Pub located next to the train station in downtown Glenwood Springs.
