The seasons have been slow to change and we haven't been out for too many winter adventures yet. The Women's World Cup did come through town last weekend, so I thought I'd share some photos from the first day's giant slalom race, which saw beautiful weather and really good snow. They're incredibly impressive to watch. Full results can be seen here. (more…)
The poster says it all. See you at Neptune Mountaineering in Boulder next Thursday.
Last May, Christy, Dirk, Art Burrows, and I joined four Canadians on a 10-day traverse from the Bugaboos to Rogers Pass. Afterwards, I did a little story on the trip, (more…)
The fastest women skiers in the world descended on Aspen this past weekend for the 2011 Women's World Cup Winternational and the two days of racing were awesome to see. Actually, the whole weekend was a blast, starting with top-to-bottom skiing for Aspen's opening day on Thanksgiving and going all the way through Sunday afternoon's final slalom run. Here are a some shots I got from Saturday's Giant Slalom race,...
It was twenty-five degrees with snow on the ground this morning. Hopefully it's not too late to post some fall color pics from a recent trip to Kebler Pass. (more…)
In what was one of the coolest new events to come to Aspen, the second stage of the inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge finished in town Wednesday. The 130+ mile course started in Gunnison and climbed over Cottonwood Pass before heading to Aspen via Independence Pass, where a reported 3000+ fired up spectators lined the road to the summit, giving it a feel akin to an Alps stage of the...
We're halfway through the season, and despite the fact that every major storm thus far has skirted us to the north or south, the first half of winter, and January in particular, proved to be pretty good for backcountry skiing. With any luck, the second half of winter will be even better. (more…)
If you ask Christy and me, 2010 was a pretty good year. The skiing was great, the races went well, the summer was memorable, we had quite a few fun adventures away from Aspen and of course Christy finished skiing the 14ers. As I was trying to organize things on my computer I came to realize that it was also a pretty good year for photos. (more…)
Earlier today I was given the opportunity to pore over a proof of the much anticipated new book, Fifty Classic Ski Descents in North America, and it looks awesome. The 200+ page, large format book, a collaboration by Chris Davenport, Art Burrows and Penn Newhard, just gets better and better with every passing page. According to the press release which sums it up best, "Fifty Classic Ski Descents of North...
The 2010 Hardrock 100 is done and now, a week later, I'm still trying to put it all together. In the days that followed, as I embraced my "recovery", mostly in the form of sitting on the couch and watching repeats of the days Tour de France leg, I fought the urge to procrastinate and attempted to post something about the event. But as I sat with my laptop open,...
