Snow on the way?

After getting over 40 inches of snow around Thanksgiving, things have been a little… dry, to say the least. Our mountains need a good shot of snow, and this approaching storm looks impressive! Let’s hope we all ski powder this weekend, so pray for snow, burn some old ski gear for the snow gods, do…

Scarpa Boostic Climbing Shoe Review

The Scarpa Boostic is a serious high-performance rock-climbing shoe. It’s… AWESOME!!! Comfortable yet high-performing, the Boostic can edge like crazy on everything from low-angle rock to extremely steep routes, and it can also smear pretty well too, considering how aggressively downturned it is. Heel and toe hooking feel extremely secure with a superb yet comfy…

Spring Chuting

I went out this week to check the spring snow conditions in the Wasatch with fellow backcountry skiers Noah Howell and Guy Evans.

CHUTE IT!!!

I was recently asked to write a ski tip for the March issue of a Canadian ski Magazine. I thought that a tip on skiing steep chutes would be appropriate for Spring ski season. A recent Backcountry Hut trip to the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho also allowed me to test my steep skiing skills!!!  …
