December is Avalanche Awareness Month and this is the story of my close call last season. My hopes is that this will motivate you to brush up on your beacon skills or sign up for the next level in avalanche classes. We throw ourselves into hazardous terrain all in the name of fun but bad […]… Continue Reading

Well it looks like we may have just experienced the best pre-season imaginable. Storms have been stacked since October, couldn’t ask for better stability, and it’s making us all feel pretty damn good about havin 801 for an area code. I think it’s safe to say the “pre-season” is over now with up to 13 […]… Continue Reading

Introducing my new ultra-light, eco-friendly, highly technical mountain tool. Took em out for a 5,200 foot stroll and I give em 2 thumbs up! Actually no I’m just a dumbass and forgot my poles. Ended up finding some great snow despite the warming and wind. It’s hidden out there all over the place. Coulter on […]… Continue Reading

Its been a cold one out there. Mostly negative digits with day in and day out of storm shredding as our snowpacks biulds by the hour. A clearing was scheduled for Thanksgiving so we headed to Wasangeles! This is the single most populated backcountry area I know about. It gets hammered constantly by the helis […]… Continue Reading

November 20-22, 2010 With major low pressure on the way and dropping temps, no better time to post up in our Tee Pee and weather the storm. It snowed about 30 inches while I was there… hangin out and shreddin pow with lots of good friends (even made some new ones). The great thing about […]… Continue Reading

Definitely startin to look like winter! I’m beginning to remember how much I love the days where you wake up, strap on the headlamp and scarf down a Clif bar on the skin track. First turn with first light. The line dropped into a halfpipe gully, with slasher walls to make us pretend we were […]… Continue Reading

I aim to tell a story with my photography. My best moments in life come to me through the mountains and there’s no better way to document them than through imagery. These two days were some of my best and bagging these lines back to back was special for me because they were two that […]… Continue Reading

First blog in a looong time. Not to worry, I havn’t given up on photography. An all new site is on the way and photos from the heart of the season are yet to come. Think of it as stoke for next year! For now, I’ve posted a video that captures what living in the […]… Continue Reading

Urban shredding… kindof Gotta love the dawn patrol. The crew: ZG, Cindi, Alecs with the snot rocket and the target in the background. Another one of the few big lines without all the sweeping avalanche potential in these crazy times. When you have 5,500 feet of climbing and who knows how many miles ahead of […]… Continue Reading

With this crazy avalanche problem we’ve been facing, it’s been really tough to find BIG lines that don’t have sweeping death potential. The Lone Peak south face is one of the biggest climbs in the Wasatch without the biggest consequences. 6,000′ up, 6,000′ down. Still feeling sick and hacking up all kinds of lung butter […]… Continue Reading
