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, but like many of you I’m still itching for more. Last year I was able to do the TAY thing (Turns All Year) and I’m tempted to keep the continuous skiing thing going. It gets kinda addictive, maybe some of you can relate.

Anyway, was a wild winter for me with some ups and downs…both literally and figuratively. Skiing-wise it was pretty successful. I survived one of the scariest avalanche cycles that I can remember in late December to mid January. Checked out some new terrain in the Beartooths that have me wanting to return, and skied some new lines in the Tetons (Northeast Ridge) and the Wind River Range (Freemont Peak) that I have wanted to ski for years. Thanks to all the partners that joined up for some great skiing this year and thanks to all those that visit and support There’s a lot more exploring and skiing left to do, so I hope you will all stick around for another year.  Live…to SKI! –Steve
