• Freshies – Skiing the Centennial Peaks of Colorado with Chris Davenport – Part 2 If you had a chance to read my previous post, you’ll know that I just put in 10 days with Colorado’s ski mountaineering elite during their mission to ski the 100 tallest peaks in Colorado (all over 13,800′).

  • Freshies – Skiing the Centennial Peaks of Colorado with Chris Davenport, Round 1 I just got off the phone with one of the editors of Powder Magazine. Toward the end of the interview she asked me this: “So when Chris Davenport calls you and invites you to join him on his lastest ambitious project, you drop everything and make it happen?” “Absolutely.” If you’re unfamiliar with Chris Davenport, […]

  • Freshies – Columbia Peak SW Face There is an aerial photographer in Washington who has become perhaps the single biggest source of visual inspiration for climbers and skier operating in the Cascade range. His name is John Scurlock, and his work is breathtaking. For years, a single shot of his has haunted me. At first I asked myself if it was possible […]
  • There I was…New Years Day on Mount Shuksan It was an ambitious plan.  To wake a short 2.5 hours after ringing in the new year, trudge with full alpine climbing and skiing gear to the highway to (hopefully) be met by my ski partner, Matt Henry, who was coming up from Seattle.  From there, it would be an exciting attempt at the summit […]
