Last year, I ended the season with an unbelievable day of skiing. Today, it happened again.
Riley, my dad, and I arrived just before open to 13 inches of fresh. Riley, the avid tree skier he is, led the way all over the mountain. Fresh tracks and face shots galore.
We finished with 16k feet of vertical in 14 runs. Reminder to self: increase the DIN setting on my Kilowatts so they don’t fly off so often.
Never miss an opportunity for adventure is my motto. When DJ posted on Facebook that he was headed to Utah for a conference and wanted to ski, I immediately jumped on it. We ended up skiing Brighton for a few days with his friends David… Continue reading →
The Miles and Daniel ski trip is now strong into its third year. This time we were joined at Squaw by Albert and lots of Miles’ roommates and friends. Many thanks to Natalie for coordinating the lodging. Saturday: 20.5k feet of vertical in 20 runs. Post-ski,… Continue reading →

Today, Miles and I skiied Alyeska for the first time. Alyeska is a resort about 40 miles south of Anchorage, Alaska. If you’ve ever seen a Warren Miller or Matchstick Productions Film, you probably are aware of Chugach Mountain Guides which operate out of the same… Continue reading →
Today’s view of upper Heather… heavenly.
Midweek skiing is fantastic. Nailed 17 runs in just under three hours with Jason and Amanda. Mercury off Shooting Star had some great snow, and Heather was a blast.
Drinking hot cocoa every night until it snows. Come on ski season.
Crashed at Sunnyside Lodge this past weekend and skiied two days at Squaw Mountain with Miles. No fresh snow but the weather couldn’t be beat. Saturday: 28,500 feet of vertical from 31 runs over 7 hours. Beer and chili fries for lunch. Grilling with Burt… Continue reading →
Flying to San Francisco this evening to meet up with Miles and ski Tahoe for the first time. I have my Black Diamond Kilowatts with me. Depending on the snow quality, I may ski them one day and demo a new pair of alpine boots… Continue reading →
