My Annual Tradition

TSV - Party on Kachina Peak

I have a simple, but satisfying, tradition of skiing on my birthday with a good friend. Whether on steep terrain or mellow, with great snow or not, I do my best to make turns celebrating another successful lap around the sun. On this particular day the terrain was great and the snow was too (we found a few rocks regardless). Here are some shots from my birthday ski at Taos Ski Valley.

Backcountry Skiing 101

Heading Out of Bounds

It's mid-winter (north of the equator) and a skier's thoughts will turn to the backcountry. If you've never hiked outside of a ski area, or you want a refresher, here are a few short videos to introduce you to skiing (and snowboarding) out of bounds. Thanks to Sarah Carpenter and Outdoor Research for posting these how-to videos.

While I check my pack and gear I hope the snowpack near you is deeper and more solid than what is in the mountains near me.

Light Cycles

Welcome to Winter! While my mind is firmly in the world of snow sports for the season, other people keep cycling through the colder months. Important Safety Tip: You can't have too many lights when night riding.
