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. [...]

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 [...]
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.

Everyone has heard of old Punxsutawney Phil over there in Pennsylvania.Â That little guy can make most skier’s smile by seeing his shadow on Groundhog Day, which means 6 more weeks of winter.Â However, 6 more weeks of winter ends in mid-March, which is about mid-season when it comes to a Teton backcountry skier’s ski [...]
Not a whole lot going on in my world this week (except that I got out of jury duty…yay!) and just tip-toeing up and skiing the basics, trying to stay on top of the snowpack. Here is a photo of a poster we have at the shop that gets quite a few comments. It’s a [...]
