Pioneer Peak - 3.30.2018
Over the last two days Brian and Sam had both skied Pioneer, and it was about to get a refresh - it was time to go get it. Only two small problems: I didn't own ice tools, and Alex had a project due at work. Easily remedied. That night I went to REI, and Al...

Montana Peak - 4.7.2018
Saturday morning on Buffalo Mine Road started memorably with a standoff against an angry moose. We wanted access to Moose Creek, the gatekeeper wanted to resume sleeping in the middle of the road; and a charge and trampling seemed imminent. Could we reverse...

Skiing the Anchorage Front Range often means yesterday's powder morphed into a combination of windboard, crust, mank, and tundra. Every once and awhile you get lucky and beat the sun and winds to the goods. We got lucky one night after work last May. After ...

Around 2 PM on Saturday the texts starting coming in from Jeff: je and Jeebs were storm skiing untracked pow in Falls Creek. I was sitting in gloomy, windy, and rainy Anchorage mourning getting shut down on the Alaska Range by storm after storm. The forecas...

Aniakchak Traverse - July 2018
Saturday morning started with the buzz of our little plane as we flew over the lakes, rivers, and volcanoes of the Alaska Peninsula. We were on the way to Port Heiden to traverse to Chignik Lagoon. I wondered about the odometer on the dashboard. 25,000 hour...

Honolulu Creek - 7.21.2018
After a prolonged negotiation with Leah, we agreed to an alpine-start
at Fire Island at 8:55 on Saturday morning. By 9:30 we were on the road with
cookies, scones, and coffee for fuel. We stopped by the Honolulu Creek bridge
to check on water levels, chatte...

Raina - 5.5.2018
For weeks the weather has been stuck on repeat as the conveyor belt of southwest flow plows storm after storm into our mountains. Last weekend it finally looked like we'd get a break in the weather. The catch was finding a zone that hadn't been overloaded b...

Peking - 5.6.2018
Sunday morning found us in Andrew's dark living room sipping coffee and negotiating ski plans for the day. I wanted to return to the dry powder we'd found in Falling Water Valley the day before; Alex wanted something bigger and badder in the Front Range, an...

Bold Peak - 4.17.2018
Like many favorites, the idea to ski the north face of Bold came years ago while daydreaming through Dongshow Productions . It became a game of waiting for weather, stability, and an available partner. With big lines going down all over the Western Chugach,...
