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. [...]

When skiing steep and exposed terrain, a skier needs to be 100% focused. A small slip of a ski edge, a milli-second loss of attention or even a simple misjudgment in terrain or snow conditions, can have very serious consequences and even lead to injury. Distractions can definitely be hazardous to oneâ€™s health in the [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
I donâ€™t know about you, but my knee has been killing me over the past few weeks. Iâ€™ve had a couple surgeries on my right knee (ACL reconstruction/Spring 1994, meniscus clean-up/Summer 1996) and it often pops, clicks and swells up on occasion. Some say that certain types of weather patterns can influence joint pain and [...]
I spent a couple hours the other day modifying some clothing. Can you guess what I did? After having a few articles of clothing with this design, I will never wear one skiing without it again.
This backpack cam shot is my favorite so far this season, mostly because it shows more of the valley, and oh yeah…sickbird POWDER!!! It’s been a snowy last few days up here in JH, which has been awesome, and if you could withstand the 2-3 second long whumps in the snowpack while breaking trail, there [...]
Randosteve dropping in on the Table Mountain break. Click all photos for larger image. This is my last full week off of work before it is back to the grindstone to make some more mula. I had a horrible day skiing at Targhee a couple days ago and it was probably the worst skiing conditions [...]
With the busy summer tourist season in full swing, Iâ€™ve been â€˜making the donutsâ€™, yet somehow still managed to pull off a three-day ski trip into the Wind River Range last weekend. I wanted to go earlier this spring/summer, say 1-2 months ago, but it just didnâ€™t work out with partners and schedules. Luckily though, [...]
A fork in the 2010-11 skis season that is? Well, maybe…but my ski seasons just don’t seem complete anymore without at least one trip into the Wind River Range. More photos to come. Sunset in Titcomb Basin, July 9th, 2011. Click photo for larger image.
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?) [...]
