Good to spend some time in the Sawtooths with the Sun Valley Trekking Crew!

Glide SUP Team

Glide-Logo-jpeg-beige250-pxI am looking forward to another great year as a member of Glide SUP Team!  I am proud to part of great group of athletes doing some positive things!  Glide SUP boards http://www.glidesup.com/ are made in the USA.  At Glide, not a single element of the production cycle is outsourced. It all happens at the factory in Salt Lake City, the largest board manufacturing operation in the country!  They have  board for every type of paddling you’re looking to do: recreational flat-water, high adrenaline whitewater, surf, race, yoga—you name it.

The Retro Board is the one quiver board. Great for the lakes,pets,yoga and can run white water up to class2.

The Quest Board was my board for the 1st crossing of Western Lake Erie.  Our touring board, this board excels on flat water as a cruiser, racer, or sightseer.

The Quest Board was my board for the 1st crossing of Western Lake Erie. This 12’6 board was the perfect choice for the 35 miles because it is super stable and fast. This board excels on flat water as a cruiser, racer, or sightseer.

Whats your Quest?

What’s your Quest?

The Locsha is the best down river board on the water!  This board is indistructable. Glide SUP is leading the way in the whitewater world.

The Lochsa is the best down river board on the water! This board is indestructible. It is a smooth ride and can turn on a dime.  Glide SUP is leading the way in the whitewater world.

Enjoy this slide show of Glide boards in action! http://flipagram.com/f/TyuRKWn89p

Targhee – 39 inches for Tele Comp Weekend

I am very proud to be part of the Grand Targhee Freeride Team for the past 5 years!  Why?  Because The Ghee always delivers with the powder. Ullr delivered over 160 inches in the February and it snowed everyday but one.  Last weekend was the annual Telemark Big Mountain Comp and the storm dumped 39 inches!  I was lucky enough to be the fore runner or should I say pow-runner!  Condition were tough for competitors due to the poor visibility.  The snow on  the other hand was deep which means the kids were sending it big!  Saturday was cancelled due to the nuking snow conditions.  Saturdays skiing was the best day of the season with 16 inches of fresh.  The highlight of the weekend was skiing with all these young tele rippers from all over the west. It is so amazing to see how much Telemark skiing has progressed.  The talent at Targhee was mind blowing.  Everywhere you looked telemark skiers were in the white room and going huge!  I love seeing the direction the sport is going.

A little milky but blower deep steep skiing!
