Guess Who’s Boots: Modified Dynafit TLT5

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 […]

TetonAT.com Videos: Teewinot Southwest Couloir

I called in sickter to work the other day and got out with some friends to ski the Southwest Couloir of Teewinot. I’ve been enjoying skiing in Glacier Gulch this year, and have skied the Southwest Couloir a number of times in the past, but it’s just so darn beautiful in the area that I […]

Punxsu-TELE Phil Update

Everyone has heard of old Punxsutawney Phil over there in Pennsylvania.  That little guy can make most skier’s smile by seeing his shadow on Groundhog Day, which means 6 more weeks of winter.  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 […]

Skiing Teewinot’s Southeast Couloir

MAN…I have been having some great days skiing in the Tetons lately! Last week, it was warm spring-like conditions on sunny aspects, and now…powder and wind! It looks like it’s gonna dump huge this week, but I’m glad I got another warm sunny day skiing above the clouds on Teewinot with Kim Havell and John […]

The Huascaran…Dynafit’s New F12 Landfish

Click all photos for larger image. Remember when Dynafit was known for making ultra-skinny and short skis for rando’ers that liked to spoon tight wiggle turns and put in low angle skin tracks? Well, they still make skis for that, but for next fall, Dynafit will add a new stick its collection called the Huascaran […]

Teewinot Video Stokage

Last Friday, I got out with Reed Finlay to ski an obscure line on the southwest side of Teewinot Mountain that drops down into Glacier Gulch. I’m not really sure what to call this route, but we dubbed it the “Son of Southwest”, after Teewinot’s more prominent and more often skied Southwest Couloir, that lies […]

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 […]

TetonAT Video: Okie’s Thorn Couloir

Here’s is a little video stoke (it’s a little slow and mind-numbing) from skiing Okie’s Thorn Couloir last week with Reed Finlay. It’s a pretty obscure line, but the couloir sits directly skier’s left of the Dike Couloir, a popular descent on Garnet Canyon/Glacier Gulch loop-tours. It also runs below a sharp pinnacle, called Okie’s […]

Suprise Pow Day

Blue-sky and powder is no disappointment…YEAH!!! Man, it was nice to have a little surprise powder day today and the sun even burned through the clouds to make it that much more stellar! There sure seemed to be more new snow than the 2-3 inches reported this morning…at least where the wind blew it into […]

Early Season in the South Couloir of the East Prong

The fun part about skiing early season is that some lines are more technical and less filled in than they are the rest of the winter due to the low snowpack. The not-so-fun part about skiing early season is that some lines are more technical and less filled in than they are the rest of […]

Early Season JHMR Deal

I just wanted to send out this PSA to anyone that may be interested in a great deal for lodging and ski tickets to the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort during the early season (thru Dec 23rd). Since JH has some of the best conditions in the lower 48 right now, as well as being named […]
