Best Reader Email 2010?

Over the years, I have gotten quite a lot of emails from people who visit TetonAT.com. Some who write to me ask about ski routes, while others ask about gear recommendations or just want to chat and share information about things that are happening.  I enjoy meeting all the new people and I like the [...]

Exploring Spaulding Peak…And Off to Canada!

Well, it most certainly has been a trying last few days. I’d like to thank my bosses, Phil Leeds and Jeff Crabtree of Skinny Skis, for giving the time I needed to get my head straightened out. I’ve worked at the store for about 13 years now, so that should tell you what kind of [...]

IceAxe.TV Antarctic Peninsula Ski Cruise Update 6

Photo: Scott Fennell. For our last day of skiing in Antarctica, the ship brought us to some mellow terrain around Discovery Bay on Greenwich Island, where the emphasis seemed to be on seeing seals and penguins, rather than skiing. And since it was long night of partying on the ship for many the night before, [...]

IceAxe.TV Antarctic Peninsula Ski Cruise Update 5

Photo Scott Fennell It has been really hard to believe all the good weather we have been having, and although it snowed a little on us late in the afternoon today, it has been more or less blue skies for the majority of the trip. I haven’t worm my Gore-Tex clothing once so far and [...]

IceAxe.TV Antarctic Peninsula Ski Cruise Update 4

Though the day started out a bit greybird, it looked as though the sun would burn through the clouds as we shuttled to the shore of Livingston Island to ski yesterday. The highest peaks on the island push over 5K’, but they are heavily glaciated and crevassed, making travel extremely dangerous and difficult. Therefore, our [...]

IceAxe.TV Antarctic Peninsula Ski Cruise Update 3

11 o’clock sunset over the Antarctic Peninsula. Everyone knows that traveling in the mountains is a dangerous activity, add in glaciers and the absolute remoteness of Antarctica, and even the smallest accident can turn into a life threatening scenario. So before I go any further, I must give a huge shout out to the IceAxe [...]

IceAxe.TV Antarctic Peninsula Ski Cruise Update 2

Another day of beautiful sunshine and amazing terrain yesterday and after traveling through the Neumayer Channel overnight, we awoke to the mountains referred to as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs towering over the ocean and the Clipper Adventurer. One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Photo Kellie Okonek. After a quick [...]

IceAxe.TV Antarctic Peninsula Ski Cruise Update 1

Randosteve skis above Cierva Cove. Photo: Scott Fennell. In my world, and any other fan of backcountry skiing, today was a day dreams are made of. After being cooped up on the Clipper Adventurer for two days crossing the Drake Passage, the clouds parted and the winds eventually mellowed to allow for an amazing day [...]

Win La Sportiva's, Guess My Time: Grand Teton

Guess my time running up and down the Grand Teton this weekend and win a FREE pair of La Sportiva Sandstone GTX hiking shoes! The Sandstone GTX is a great light hiker with a rugged Vibram sole, leather and mesh uppers, a capped toe for protection, a gusseted tongue and a Gore-Tex insert to keep [...]

2008-2009 TetonAT.com Slideshow

Well…it’s been another great ski season. Stretching from long approaches and early season turns on the Middle Teton Glacier on October 25th, to…long approaches and late season turns in the Winds River Range in early July. Not too bad…milking 9 months of skiing out of the lower forty-eight, [...]

Northeast Ridge Variation, Mount Moran

Skiing the Northeast Ridge of Mount Moran has been on my Teton hit-list ever since I started getting more serious about ski mountaineering in the late 90′s. Reed Finlay and I made our first attempt at it in 2006, shooting for the line Stephen Koch did on the first descent, which continued past the gendarme [...]

Skiing in the Eastern Beartooths Part 2

Randosteve skis in the Eastern Beartooths of Montana. Our second full day skiing out of Goose Lake was the best. Our plan was to head up to Fox Peak and scope out its North Couloir, which was recommend by Kris Erickson, a well known ski mountaineer and photographer. After hopefully a successful descent, would then [...]
