Before the season started, Christy and I sat down with our friends at Cripple Creek Backcountry down in Carbondale as guests on their backcountry skiing podcast, Totally Deep. We were surprised to learn that Totally Deep is one of the only podcasts that exist on the topic of backcountry skiing. Randy and Doug do a […]
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 […]
The Backcountry Skiing and Ski Mountaineering in Rocky Mountain National Park guidebook is on the shelves, and gracing the cover is a photo of mine– that of Dirk Bockelmann skiing the North Face of Longs Peak.

Well at least that’s my strategy when Christy and I line up at the start for the Steamboat Marathon this Sunday. I don’t have a choice. After a great spring almost entirely dedicated to skiing, and with the approaching calendar stacked with some pretty tough running races– the Bighorn 50 is in two weeks and […]
As part of getting all caught up after our trip, we’ve been chipping away at the Himalayan-like pile of mail that awaited us at home. That means flipping through a glossy ski or climbing magazine faster than Christy can cover a fluffy fashion mag while waiting to check out at the supermarket. So we almost […]
