It’s been a quiet start to summer here on the blog, but that’s about to change. The first order of business, the New York Marathon. Sure, the race isn’t until November, but when I run the marathon it will be as part of a charity team, Action for Healthy Kids, and it’s time to pass […]
And in the department of awesome news, Christy was included in Backcountry Magazine’s headline story this month, Girl Power — 37 Women Who Charge, a feature on the magazine’s picks for the most important women in backcountry skiing. I could write volumes on why it’s so deserving, but if anyone really needs to have it […]
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Saturday was the Sunlight Endurance Challenge, a.k.a. the 12 Hours of Sunlight. Last year, Christy and I managed to win the co-ed relay division of this unique uphill/downhill race. Despite a pretty thin field with only a few teams competing, it was still a really close finish against our friends from town, Lyndsay Meyer and […]
No doubt about it, Christy and I have had a lot of cool opportunities in the outdoors. Ever since arriving to Aspen, in 1994 for me and 2000 for Christy, we were always impressed by what we saw and heard people doing in the mountains around town. From that inspiration, we’ve built our own lives […]
In 2003, I was offered the chance to be a part of the first, live televised summit of Mount Everest. The catch– it was as a contestant on a reality television show. The series was called “Global Extremes – 4 Runners of Adventure” and in short, it took a whole bunch of contestants to exotic […]
If you’re in Vail next week for opening day, come by The Sebastian afterwards for Christy’s slideshow. It’s going to be fun. Tickets benefit the Youth Foundation of Vail.
(Christy here) This weekend I had the honor of attending the 37th Annual Sportswomen of Colorado Awards Celebration. Prior to receiving a letter a few weeks back notifying me that I was the recipient of an award for Superior Performance in Ski Mountaineering, I was not familiar with the organization. Honored to be included, I […]
We’re getting married!!! Christy and I got engaged on Sunday. No maps, slideshows or GPS coordinates are needed for this post. Plan A – a summit proposal atop Coxcomb was stymied by bad weather so Plan B had us on a quick hike to a pass above camp and with just enough of a break in the […]
It’s July 16th, a.k.a. the most important day of the year, and if you haven’t seen Christy and her long red dress and wished her a happy birthday yet, you can still acknowledge the significance of the day at the Aspen Club tennis courts until 8, then at the Sky until about 10 and finally […]
