Recent First Descents of Mount Cook and Tasman by Fredrico Varingo

While some first descents get lots of attention, others often trickle by unnoticed. Because of that, I just wanted to give props to these potential first ski descents by Italian Fredrico Varingo, who is reported by Aspiring Guides of New Zealand to have made first descents of both Mount Cook and Mount Tasman this past […]

Nice to Get That Out of the Way

Randosteve skis the Cave Couloir in Garnet Canyon. Click all photos for larger image. Getting ready to and going out skiing for the first day of the season can sometimes be a bit of a junk show and rather stressful, so it’s always nice to get it out of the way and dial things in. […]

Andreas Fransson’s Denali South Face Ski Descent

This is pretty rad. Many of you know that this past spring/summer, Andreas Fransson made the first descent of Denali’s South Face. Well…here is the video. I know some people, many of whom are veteran guides on Denali, have had their eye on this line for years. Well…Andreas nails it, solo…and also skied the Messner […]

First Matterhorn SkiBASE…Lucky Matthias Giraud!

Pretty wild take-off by Matthias Giraud during the first ever ski-BASE off the Matterhorn in Switzerland. Matthias tags some rocks as he launches and looses a ski, which forces him into a front-flip to avoid certain death.  “As I reached the edge of the cliff and prepared myself […]

More Grand Teton Speed Porn

Well, since someone (Brian Story) came within 3 minutes of breaking the Grand Teton speed descent record this weekend, as well as an impressive time on a Grand, Middle and South Teton ski descent link-up (Nathan Brown and Zahan Billamoria, 10:39), this video of Bryce Thatcher and Creighton King’s battle for the summer ascent and […]

Grand Teton Ski Descent Speed Record Set?

UPDATE: Today, Utah residents Jared Inouye, Andy Dorais and Jason Dorais teamed up for a group solo ski descent of the Ford/Stettner Route and set a new bar with a time of 5:17 car-to-car. These guys are pretty speedy rando-races and the time will be very hard to beat. See the comments section of this […]

Icy North Face Static Peak

Got a little sketched-out skiing the North Face of Static Peak the other day, a first for me as it usually looks rocky and terrifying. Morning clouds and wind kept things firm on aspects that typically get sun at first light. I knew it would be icy, but went for it anyway. (It’s good training…right?) […]

Getting Further Away In Snowshoe Canyon

Paradise in Snowshoe Canyon. Click all photos for larger image. Sooo, I’ve been trying to plan and put together an overnight trip into Snowshoe Canyon all winter, but the overall conditions never really lined up. (At least on my days off.) Snowshoe Canyon lies just north of Moran Canyon and is one of the few […]

1984 Civetta Descent

I found this random video of a 1984 ski descent by Toni Velaruz (at the time, a 43 year old ski instructor at Val di Fassa) of the North East Wall of Civetta, a huge peak in the Italian Dolomites. The line is over 1000m long and averages 60 degrees. Though he had heli-assistance, the […]

Jay Petervary’s No Idle Tour

I just want to give my bro Jay Petervary a little shout out for his NoIdleTour mission that is happening this year. Jay’s goal is to raise awareness for people to stop idling their cars by riding in three epic and huge bike races this summer. And when I say bike races, I’m not taking […]

Snowmobile Ascent Of Terminal Cancer Couloir

Terminal Cancer Couloir in Nevada has become quite a popular destination ski descent, but will skiers and slednecks now be competing for first tracks? Recently, the narrow, 30 degree couloir was ascended by a snowmobile. After the ascent, the snowmobiles were then helicoptered off the mountain instead of […]

Sit-Skier Chris Devlin-Young Skis Corbet’s Couloir

Earlier this week, US Paralympic member Chris Devlin-Young became the first sit-skier to ski JHMR’s legendary Corbet’s Couloir, unaided. Corbet’s was dubbed “America’s Scariest Ski Slope” by USA Today (there is even a play-by-play on how to ski it, at least for people that have function of both of their legs) , and I’m assuming […]

Fourth Time Is A Charm

Randosteve negotiates the wave entrance in the Sneaker Couloir. Click all photos for larger image. Sometimes I get obsessed with a ski line, especially one that I haven’t skied before. For the past few weeks, it’s been a line called Sneaker Couloir, which has taken me four tries to ski. The first try, and about […]

Greg “2 Mil” Hill Closing In

Good Luck to Greg “2 Mil” Hill on the final days of his quest to ski 2 million vertical feet of human powered turns. I think he’s got a little over 60,000′ left to tick off, with only a few days to go. You got this one the bag Greg…get after it!

Open Season at JHMR

That’s what I’m taking about!!! You’d have to live in a cave to not know that Jackson Hole has been getting hammered with snowfall since the beginning of October. The Bridger Teton National Avalanche Center is reporting that 127″ of snow has fallen so far and with a 56″ base at the bottom of Rendezvous […]
