"A Life Ascending" This Thursday

If you missed the screening of “A Life Ascending” when it played in Jackson Hole last winter as part of the Banff Mountain Film Festival, don’t fret…as you will have another chance to see this great film on Thursday, March 1st, at 7PM in the Snow King Teton Room. Tickets are available at Skinny Skis […]

Beartooth Survival Story

I’m not much of a dog dude, but this sure is an amazing story about Ole, a little corgi’s will to live after an avalanche took his owner’s life (RIP David Gillard of Bozeman, MT) up in Cooke City, MT, on New Year’s Eve day. Pretty impressive little guy and thanks to BeartoothPowder.com for sharing […]

Wish I Could Ski Like This Dude

Oh man…that powder looks sooooo dreamy right now. Have a great weekend!

Most Insane BASE/Wingsuit?

I saw this a couple weeks ago and thought I would share. BASE jumping is pretty out there in its own right, but the true insanity in this clip starts at 1:15, so be sure to stick it out. Death wish?

Andreas Fransson's Denali South Face Ski Descent

This is pretty rad. Many of you know that this past spring/summer, Andreas Fransson made the first descent of Denali’s South Face. Well…here is the video. I know some people, many of whom are veteran guides on Denali, have had their eye on this line for years. Well…Andreas nails it, solo…and also skied the Messner […]

Icefalls are COOL!!!

Thanks to one of my Faceplant friends for showing me this video. I’m not sure if it is the Hydrocodone I’m taking to help ease the pain from a visit with the periodontist yesterday, but I thought this clip was pretty cool. Even with the ladders, some of the crevasse crossings during this guy’s descent […]

The Freedom Chair…Inspiring!

Josh Dueck was an aspiring Canadian skier and coach until a ski accident in 2004 changed his life for good. After coming to the realization that he would never walk again, Josh made a conscious decision to make the best of a terrible situation. Within 1 year he was back on snow doing what he […]

First Matterhorn SkiBASE…Lucky Matthias Giraud!

Pretty wild take-off by Matthias Giraud during the first ever ski-BASE off the Matterhorn in Switzerland. Matthias tags some rocks as he launches and looses a ski, which forces him into a front-flip to avoid certain death.

Sierra Slayers Stoke

It’s cool to see a little Sierra Slayers stoke from our friend John Morrison, from the Tahoe area, with a nice descent of the Mendenhall Couloir. Definitely have looked at this one a few times driving up and down 395, and it will be in the radar the next time I visit. Though the line […]


Getting it done on July 1st, 2011. Click photo for larger image.

Grand Teton Ski Descent Speed Record Set?

UPDATE: Today, Utah residents Jared Inouye, Andy Dorais and Jason Dorais teamed up for a group solo ski descent of the Ford/Stettner Route and set a new bar with a time of 5:17 car-to-car. These guys are pretty speedy rando-races and the time will be very hard to beat. See the comments section of this […]

Solo GT

Beau Fredlund makes a solo ascent of the Ford Couloir on the Grand Teton on June 18, 2011. Click photo for larger image. Just wanted to share this rad picture from Jay Hause of Beau Fredlund on a solo ascent of the Ford Couloir on the Grand Teton today. The photo was taken at about […]

The Grand Project

Lots of work and low visibility and cloudy skiing for me lately. As the seasons start to change here in the Tetons, it always cool to see how different things looks as the snow melts and the rocks and meadows start to show through. Here’s a cool time-lapse by Kevin Cass of the same transition, […]

Red Skies at Morning…

…Skiers take warning. Windy + Cloudy=Icy + Shutdown…today. Click photo for larger image.

Chased By The Sun

It seems like Norway and the island of Svalbard are the hot new spots for destination wilderness ski mountaineering right now. As a land with 24-hours of sun, located above the arctic circle, with glaciers, fjords, beaches and steep lines and peaks that few have ever seen…who could ask for more?! I tried to make […]

TimeLine and Xavier de le Rue

Here is another video from the TimeLine Series and Xavier de le Rue. I find what Xavier says at the end of this one especially interesting.  I hear he was with this group the other day, so maybe there will be some footage released down the road.  See you on the skin-track Xavier!!!

Cortina’s Classic Couloirs

Here’s a little Euro weekend stoke for you. It’s a compilation of descents in a number of the Dolomite’s classic couloirs by Felix Hentz.  My favorite imagery in this video is at the end…now that is a rappel off a bridge if I’ve ever seen one.

Igneous Rocks POV Stoke!

Shirley’s – Igneous Rocks – Talk Is Cheap Here is a pretty cool POV video of a descent of one of the more rowdy lines off of Cody Peak, called “Igneous Rocks”.  It was popularized and first skied by Mike Tierney, who I think aired into the line, as opposed to Cam Ciccone’s sidestep.  It […]

Sit-Skier Chris Devlin-Young Skis Corbet's Couloir

Earlier this week, US Paralympic member Chris Devlin-Young became the first sit-skier to ski JHMR’s legendary Corbet’s Couloir, unaided. Corbet’s was dubbed “America’s Scariest Ski Slope” by USA Today (there is even a play-by-play on how to ski it, at least for people that have function of both of their legs) , and I’m assuming […]

More From Xavier de le Rue

Here is another video clip from Xavier de le Rue, this one is of him riding some rad splitter couloirs in the Italian Dolomites. I also got a chance to ask Xavier a few questions about his riding and other stuff, so be sure to read below. The first line in the video I skied […]
