The usual trail races are coming up (Lake City, Hardrock) so Christy and I are trying to make the annual rapid transition from skiing to running. It always feels kind of last minute– a recent sprained ankle didn’t help– but while I often complain to myself about the lack of time to get properly prepared, […]
The results are in from the OnTheSnow.com ski test. Over a few days last March, I was one of 13 lucky people tasked with evaluating next year’s skis for the website’s annual review. I say lucky because I think it’s a really cool opportunity to tryout the new gear, but it wasn’t without it’s challenges. […]
The 2012 OntheSnow.com ski test is a wrap. As one of the more widely visited online ski websites, with an equally popular annual ski review, it was an awesome opportunity to be one of the testers this year. Over the course of three days, about a dozen of us each skied and evaluated over 60 […]
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.

Honored to be included, I […]

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 […]
Ed’s note: With the Hardrock set to kick off Friday morning, crew member, friend and writer Tim Mutrie thought it would be cool to share an interview he did with the 2008 winner and current course record holder, Kyle Skaggs. In the wake of Kyle Skaggs’ annihilation of the Hardrock 100, almost two years ago, […]
