I am so incredibly proud to say that after nearly 10 years of hard work and preparation I am now an IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide and can proudly call myself an American Mountain Guide. A huge thanks to all of you who helped me train and prepare specially over the years but also thank you to everyone I have every shared a rope or a skin track with .

I just finished a big up date to my avalanche beacon review. We tested all the top beacons side-by-side in range, processor speed, hundreds of searches and more. The review is also complete with an additional buying advice article on beacon fundamentals, current technology, as well as discussions on key features and important factors to consider when purchasing this key piece of back-country safety equipment. So please share it and check it out!

I just finished a huge update of my avalanche airbag pack review for outdoorgearlab.com. I worked super hard on it and I think it is the most in-depth and comprehensive avalanche airbag pack review out there. Not only does it break down what to look for, compare common features and airbag systems but it also presents the theories and the most up-to-date statistics in an easier to understand and more digestible manner.
