4/1 to 5/9/2016 – When you get a call from your best buddies proposing that they might come stay with you for a month, take them up on it. Then they’ll stay longer. And keep coming back. And that’s the best part. That was the case when Jonny and Leslie came back to town last […]Read more "Some Family Outings"
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) […]Read more "The Yoho Traverse"
2/13 to 2/15/2016 – After a solid month of routine work, skiing, eating and sleeping Grete and I were needing something to change it up. With Valentine’s Day coming up, I booked Yurtski’s Lupine yurt in the southern Swan Range for the weekend.

A couple of the old Niwot Ridge crew were en-route to San Francisco and swung […]Read more "Wasatch Backcountry Adventures"

First, you have Jonny Cromwell skiing a gnarly rock drop where he kicked off a nice little slab slide out of the East Portal. Next is a photo of Alex Umbhau ripping some single track through […]Read more "A Few Randos…"
Three-season tents do not do very well when the high for the day is ten degrees Fahrenheit. January 3rd – 5th I accompanied backcountry skier Alexander Umbhau and snowboarder Casey LeFever into Rocky Mountain National Park for a couple of days of freezing temperatures, earn-your turns powder laps, and winter camping at its finest. Here […]Read more "Snow Camping in a Three Season Tent"
