Red Baldy

The latest warm spell rapidly dispelled of any positive feelings on the snowpack and shifted many people’s focus from skiing to biking/climbing.  While riding down south definitely has its appeal, Lincoln, Gary, and I weren’t quite ready to pack up the skis and call it a winter.  That being said the pickings were slim – with a significant …

RR: 2014 Wasatch PowderKeg

My first winter in Salt Lake has been awesome, as I’ve been able to ski 4-5 days a week and explore the Wasatch more than I had ever imagined, but lets be honest, the snow hasnt quite been up to par.  January was one of the driest on record.  It was followed by February…which was …

SSSB Trip 2015 – Ripping the West Bowl

Its been a hell of a winter so far- even with the low snow pack – its been great to ski some big peaks and meet new people on the slopes.  That being said, the annual SSSB is a trip that I had circled on my calendar weeks in advance.  We had the usual suspects …

Yurt Life: Payette Powder Guides 2015

Theres something about a Yurt trip that grabs at the heart of the adventurous.  Not only are Yurts generally far removed from people, but they are also usually in areas with awesome terrain.  When my buddy Will called me and said ‘Hey there might be an opening in a yurt trip I’m going on’, I …

Twin Peaks: Pushing it to the Top

Its human nature to push yourself.  A year ago – skiing at Snowbird would have been a highlight of my winter – but after a few months of skiing Snowbird, I couldnt help but look at the peaks around the rest of the Wasatch and wonder what it would be like to ski some of …

The Peak Between

Driving cross country is an amazing experience – one that everyone should do at some point in their lives.  The range of cultures/people you encounter within the US is remarkable.  That being said, I would be lying if I didn’t say I was feeling a bit couped up after 10 days of driving (even with …

Addis

Chris Kulish has a knack for adventure – whether its ‘getting into’ BASE jumping, mountain biking, etc – he has a way of doing awesome things with some pretty great people.  So when he called me and asked if I was interested in joining him and some buddies on a trip there was no hesitation …

Alliegrippi Trails

Riding Patapsco is always a blast – but sometimes you just gotta mix it up.  Wonda and I had heard about these trails up in PA – laid out by IMBA –  and figured they were worth checking out.  The Alliegrippi Trails – near Raysotwn Lake – are two separate loops that dip, dive, and …

Mud Season

Everyone knows that Jackson in Winter and Summer is prime for the taking.  The only problem with this…everyone who knows wants to be there.  However – that leaves Spring and Fall as lesser known and therefore lesser visited times of the year.  There is a reason for the lower rates of visitation – the weather …

A Mid-Atlantic Tour – Pittsburgh to DC

Following our bike ride across Uganda, Muyambi and I came away feeling pretty content with our accomplishment.  However, like with all accomplishments the feeling of satisfaction started to fade and with it a need to do something big…although this time a little closer to home.  The search for this ride was pretty easy – we …
