Hanging On To Winter…

5/5 to 5/30/2017 – We had an excellent winter here in the Flathead Valley, with storm after storm rolling in and filling the mountains with plentiful snow.  Therefore, come spring time, there was plenty of skiing still to do (and plenty more currently).  Here are photos from a handful of great spring outings in the […]

Spring in Glacier – 2016

5/2/2016 – I finally got the chance to get out with the local mountain legend, and my awesome boss, Don Scharfe.  This fella has a level mountain mastery that the community of the Flathead Valley respects and learns from.  His passion and skills are self taught and come simply from years spent in zealous wandering in […]

The Yoho Traverse

3/22 to 3/25/2016 – Being that we live so close to the border, Grete and I had a major Canadian itch to scratch this last ski season.  We wanted to get our feet wet with Canadian ski traversing and hoped to get to see some gigantic glaciers too!  Thankfully, we had friends (Anthony and Becca) […]

The Forgotten Season

December 2012 to April 2013 – My second winter out in the Wasatch I skied alot.  I was fortunate to meet a new (and always available) friend and touring partner – Jesse Dudley – who was just as stoked to get out and after the mountains! The season also offered the most snow of my three […]

Spring in Washington

Late April through early May – After the season had wrapped up in Utah, Grete and I headed to visit my folks in Seattle and to start work on our new summer home… A 1973 Airstream Argosy 24′.  The project was all-consuming for roughly three weeks but we occasionally got out for quick hikes and brief […]
