    Tele Chick

     I got my first tele set-up as a Valentine's Day present in 2007. My now ex got it for me thinking it would slow me down on the mountain. After the first day I was able to drop a knee. The second day I was skiing the slack-country. I was lucky enough to learn to tele in...

    Still Ripping the Joey Lines.

    Just hiked Mascera Mountain yesterday May 9, 2008.  I found a special way in and it shaves a lot of time off my climb.  The sun was out and the wind was slight at the bottom.  I was in a light shirt but had long underwear on.  Stay cool for the climb and...

    Got my big Voile Asylum Skis!

    You can't beat a massive fat board.   I love my new boards.  I can't wait for the new freshies to fall.  I pray the weatherpeople are wrong and nature delivers a massive dump like last winter.  Nothing proves the Chicken Littles more wrong then the 22' of...

    First Year Of No Joey's.

    After living under the ski area mystique for so many years I have lost my fervor for its hype.  I climbed two days a week under a closed lift to learn how to shred freshness.  Sometimes skinning into the BC to ski Friday, Saturday and Sundays.   I am...

    Winter Of 2010

    After hiking for 8 months of crawling through cliffs, moose bogs loaded with poop and walls of impenetrable spruce and firs I am ready to go hit some serious bc.  Last weekend we were checking for dead fall damage from high winds on some of our favorite haunts and had seen...

    Telemark

    I have to admit that I can't telemark ski. Actually I have never tried, but I do think guys who telemark are hot! Nothing like watching a guy ski through fresh powder in the Alps on telemarks. Something about that takes my breath away

    If You Climb It You Earned Your Turns.

    I was hiking a local ski area Friday Apr. 25,2008 and I was half way up the mountain on an open trail. Let's be brutally honest here right place wrong time. So I was on the extreme edge of the trail.  A ski patrol stopped me and asked for my ticket. I did not have one...
