Two days after skiing the Amora Vida Couloir on the South Teton, a fellow skier and friend, Wray Landon was killed in an avalanche while skiing the same route. It has taken me a little while to be able to look at the footage, and a few tears were shed while making this video and […]
Back at basecamp… …and the weather determined it was not meant to be. Steve called this morning and the team has returned to base camp from Camp Two and a half.

Randokitty here for Randosteve: Steve called today, on the satellite phone, from base camp. The two day trek in to base camp went well, and the team is doing great, settling into camp at over 14, 000ft. At three points along the trek in, the team members’ oxygen levels were tested and all three members […]

One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Photo Kellie Okonek. After a quick […]
