Cascade Mountain Rescue, Banff NP

Man, things sure have changed in the last few years (it is Canada though…eh) regarding what part of rescues can be shared with the public. I bet these guys didn’t get kicked off the job for posting this rescue. Oh well…such is life.

De-Stink The Stink

Posted · 26 Comments

It’s that time of year again. The temperature is starting to rise (oh nooooo…) and your feet sweat like no one’s business when they are stuffed inside your thick and warm ski boot liners all day. I use thin synthetic socks when I ski, and they hold plenty of wrank foot odor on their own. [...]

Words of Wisdom

I just wanted to give a shout-out to my good friend and ski partner Reed Finlay (now former ski partner?), for the birth of his son on Leap Day last week. With the Leap Day birthday, little Kershaw Finlay will no doubt be a huckster on the skis when he grows up. But, Uncle Randosteve [...]

Live To Ski Weekend Video

Posted · 8 Comments

I put this video together of the three days of skiing that was my weekend…I think a couple weeks ago now. Nothing too outlandish, and it starts with a couple pics from a nice ski tour to No Woods Basin. The meat of the footage is a mission in the northern end of the park. [...]

Posted · 18 Comments

When relating to skiing, some people call it “trenching” when you leave deep ruts in the corduroy as you rail GS turns down the piste.

Scary Skin Track Moments

Posted · 13 Comments

Whether it is whumps in the snowpack, unpredictable moose, or slick and icy spots, there can be some pretty darn scary moments when you are out on the skin track. How about this one? When what appears to be an untouched track of fresh snow…suddenly explodes into a ball of feathers and flapping wings as [...]

Guess Who's Boots: Modified Dynafit TLT5

Posted · 11 Comments

Had the day off today, but turned out to be pretty busy…after shredding 7K’ of awesomely fast untracked powder, of course. One of my “extra tasks” today was to help a fellow skier bring his modified Dynafit TLT5 boots back up to par and replace some blown rivets with T-nuts. And when I say modified…I [...]
