We just got back from an awesome week up at the Icefall Lodge, in the Canadian Rockies. Situated in a rugged area of mountains and glaciers west of the Selkirks, the privately owned lodge (actually two lodges) is nestled right at treeline has everything from gladed tree runs, to short backyard-style laps, pillow lines, and […]
For the superstitious skier, it’s usually a bad idea to talk about a snow storm before it arrives. But this ski season so far has been lacking in terms of snow, so whatever steps we’ve taken to keep from jinxing the snowfall hasn’t been effective, and there’s a storm on the way. So I’m going […]
In need of a change of scenery after a hectic holiday stretch in Aspen, we went down to ski Silverton Mountain last weekend. They were a little light on snow, and the temps were frigid (-22F as we drove to the ski area Saturday morning), but Christy, Joey, and I still had a great time.

While we’re waiting for the snow to arrive, I wanted to pass along a cool video by Jordan Manley on the sailboat skiing adventures in NW Iceland offered by Borea Adventures. Iceland: A Skier’s Journey EP3 S3 from ARC’TERYX on Vimeo.
Our 2011-12 ski season salvage operation has come to a close. Two weeks in Canada and a week in the Northwest helped make up for the somewhat lackluster winter we had in Aspen. Now it’s time for summer. There’s a small chance we’ll ski again here in Colorado, but for now, Christy and I figure […]
It’s always a bit of a gamble to plan an ambitious trip to the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. The fickle, if not downright lousy weather has dealt more than it’s share of disappointment to locals and visitors alike. So we knew when we got the invite to join Chris Davenport on the Spyder Volcano […]
What an incredible trip this has been. Since joining Chris Davenport and friends on the Spyder Volcano Tour last weekend we’ve skied Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, and Mt. St. Helens. We’ve caught up with old friends, met loads of new ones, toured parts of the Northwest we’ve never been to before, and had awesome skiing […]
It’s a quick turnaround. Since returning from Canada earlier this week, Christy’s bags pretty much remained packed– with only the clothes that needed a visit to the laundry room having been pulled out and since put back clean.
Here are a few more from the week.
