Sierra Slayer in the House…and the Snowpack

Click all photos for larger image. Considering that there is virtually zero snow in the Sierras right now, and not really to my surprise, legendary Sierra Slayer Glen Poulsen and friend Sarah hightailed it to Jackson on New Year’s Eve for a few days of skiing in the Tetons. Unfortunately, I’m smack dab in the […]

Once Bitten Twice Shy in Quartzite Canyon

Randosteve launching with the sunrise from Colter Bay in GTNP. Click all photos for larger image. After a long day skiing in Waterfalls Canyon and one day off to recover a little, Reed Finlay and I went back up into the northern range to investigate a ski line that we have both been eying for […]

Steamy Tetons Photo Dump

Sunrise on the Grand Teton. Click all photos for larger image. I’m just wrapping up a block of days off with some great powder skiing under mostly sunny skies, which makes for good ski photos. I had one shutdown mission, due to some tricky wind-slab conditions and the call to play it safe. I’m headed […]

Windy Peak 10,696

Over the weekend, I skied Peak 10,696 in Grand Teton National Park with Randokitty. The weather was pretty burly, with wind gusts close to 70mph that day. The skiing was halfway decent, when you could see, and Kitty got blasted by a huge wind gust on her descent.

POV Compilation

With a relatively slow start to the ski season, a marginal and sometimes sketchy snowpack, its’ been a little difficult to really get after it this year. Luckily, things are starting to turn around and I’ve slowly started to venture into some steeper and more exposed terrain. Here’s a little video compilation of some of […]

Ranger Peak

Reed Finlay skis the East Face of Ranger Peak. The highest peak in the Tetons north of Mount Moran. I recently bought a little kicker 6HP motor for my drift boat, mainly for putting across Jackson Lake in the spring to access skiing. Sorry, not a very big fan of canoeing. It’s getting a little […]

TetonAT Videos: Skiing Peak 10,696

Got out skiing yesterday on Peak 10,696 in the park. I was on a solo mission, but ran into another park afficionado on the way (an old roommate actually), so we skied the peak together. Unfortunately a group had skied it the day before and there were a few tracks in the southeast facing bowl, […]

Peak 10,696/Maverick-First Park Tour

Today was my first Park tour of the season. Conditions are still quite thin down low but the snow up high was great! The temperature was -5F at the trailhead and we could feel it in our lungs. We followed a skin track across Whitegrass Meadow, to the top of Maverick and found some sunglasses […]
