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. [...]

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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Barring multiple avalanche warnings and overall sketchy snow conditions, itâ€™s petty hard to sit around the house or wait in lift-lines with a bazillion other skiers, and Iâ€™ve been trying to get out into the backcountry and ski what is availableâ€¦without getting killed in the process. After getting denied and turning around at 8kâ€™ in [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Bears in the skin track. For those that havenâ€™t been paying attention, there has been a major influx of grizzly bears into the southern end of Grand Teton National Park in the past few months. Why they are down here is anyoneâ€™s guess, but I would think the gut piles from dead elk (yeah, hunters [...]
I was charged by a bull moose today. I forgot my camera at home, so unfortunately no pictures, but here is the story anyway. I was hiking back to the Bradley/Taggart Trailhead around mid-afternoon, after a solo ski mission in Garnet Canyon. My skis were on my back and AT boots on my feet. I [...]
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 itâ€™s always nice to get it out of the way and dial things in. [...]
A fun day skiing over the weekend with Brandon French, Kevin Grove and Reed Finlay on the East Ridge of Mount Wister.
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?) [...]
