2013 Year in Review, Professionally

Ski Mountaineering Gear List, 2013-14
Ski mountaineering is a broad category. People practice a wide range of skiing and refer to it as ski mountaineering. One way to define ski mountaineering is skiing in which the hazard or concern is something other than, or in addition to, avalanches. Maybe...

Intracranial Climate in a Dry December
Motivation is a matter of perspective. But conditions can't be faked. 17 days since the last real  snow fall. Red Cone Bowl, December 25, 2013. Jed photo. Life lessons, Chad would call 'em: One ties livelihood and social life and avocation to a fickle low-l...

Winter Climbing Gear Lists, 2013-14
'Tis the season!  The winter season.  Or, more accurately, the time to equip for the winter season. I have basically got my systems down, with minor tweaks one year to the next. Here's what I'll use this winter for climbing.  I'll break down the ski gear in...

Introduction
Jediah Porter is a full-time part-timer.  He works as a mountain guide and for OutdoorGearLab.com and as a substitute teacher.  Guiding work requires an even mix of rock shoes, approach shoes, ice boots, and ski gear.  Off the clock, he climbs and skis.  He engages in binges of mountain biking, canoeing, and trail-running.  He goes by Jed and takes pride in using the right tool for the job, unless he doesn't have that tool.  In which case he improvises.  "If you don't have it, you don't need it".  He has lived most of his adult life in the Eastern Sierra and, among other travels, tries to get to Alaska (for big mountains) and the East Coast (for family) once each year.
