Our trip to the Sierras started with a ski descent of the Northeast Couloir on Mount Langley, the southernmost 14er in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Our last stop on our Norway trip was to the Lyngen Alps, a peninsula packed with peaks a short distance north of Tromso. We had long heard of the region, it’s one of the more well-known locations in Northern Norway for climbing and skiing.
No one really knew what to expect when we made the drive north from the Lofoten Islands to Senja Island. It turns out the place is awesome!
Snowy mountains that rise out of the fjord, ski lines that go all the way to the water, boat-accessed terrain, endless daylight, expensive beer-- when you ask a skier to define Norway those are a few of the thoughts you often hear. And they all sound pretty enticing, well, with the exception of the last one. Rich in ski history and culture, and situated in an arctic environment with some...
I recently joined a group of friends up at CMH Valemount, to heli-ski in the Cariboos of British Columbia for a week. It was a good time. There's a lot to love about skinning and the earn-your-turns days. But I have to admit, and I guess not surprisingly, the heli-ski experience is really something. You don't burn as many calories or appreciate each turn quite as much as when you...
Sierre-Zinal, located in Switzerland’s Valais Alps, was one of the most incredible running experiences we have ever had in the mountains. It was such a special opportunity to run amongst the world’s elite running community on a spectacular course called the “La Course des Cinq 4000” – the “Race of the Five 4,000 meter peaks”.
With the race behind us, we made our way from Zinal to Zermatt where we would finally be able to make use of the 40 lb. duffel of climbing gear we had been carting around with us. (more…)
We ran the 2014 Sierre Zinal 31k race in Switzerland and put together a somewhat shaky video from out on the course.
We decided to check out Capitol Reef National Park last weekend. Like many people, we had long known of this National Park in south central Utah but had never spent any actual time there. One of its major attractions is the Waterpocket Fold, a 100 mile long exposed monocline
On May 29, 2003, the inaugural Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon took place. Nepali owned and organized, the race has been run every year on May 29th, the anniversary of Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary’s historic 1953 Mt. Everest ascent. The mostly downhill course descends the Khumbu Valley along popular trekking routes, from Everest Basecamp at 17,500 ft. to Namche Bazaar at 11,200 ft. In recent years, the race has...
