A different kind of powder day. It is pretty special to be on the river in the winter with all the snow. Enjoy this edit from the Mighty Big Wood River in Ketchum,Idaho. Music by Natural Roots. Thanks for watching.
I had a “banner” time at the Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake. I am proud to be featured in the Avex booth. Avex has been a great supporter over the years. Be sure to check out all their sweet new gear. http://www.avexsport.com/
Yes, it has been a December to remember and we’re only half way! Sun Valley is off to one of the best starts in recent memories! Over 60 inches of fresh have provided a solid base and has the most of the mountain open. Enjoy these shots from the rarely skied College south slopes. Photos by Jon Mancuso.
Days like this call for “The Professor”. The Professors are my new pow slaying skis. These babies come in at [185cm] 144-150-122-134-123. Yep, 122 under foot is perfect for floating the deep. Plus, it is a really fun and lively ski. Another bonus is that they absolutely rip on the groomer back to the chair. I was blown away on how easy it was to lay some trenches on the piste.
Oh yeah, there is another Winter Storm Warning…stay posted!
I was lucky enough to get a sup surf day in Florida this fall at the Bic SUP Ambassador Summit. The last day the waves cleaned up for this mountain kid to catch some waves and get humbled. It was great to have Bic team mate Justin Schaay to show me the ropes. Justin is a lifetime waterman from South Africa and excellent teacher. Warning…it is super addictive!
Who would have thought that a self taught telemark skier from Cleveland would make it in to Outside Magaize? I was beyond thrilled when photographer Tal Roberts http://talroberts.com/ called and said we have 2 shots in December’s issue! We have a small shot on the table of contents page. Plus, a page full shot in the Destinations section.
Pretty crazy that this marks 10 years of getting images published in the mags. I have to Give Thanks for the great people that support the dream…Mammut, Smith Optics, Scarpa, Zenergy, Cleveland Coffee Company, Asterisk, Beyond Coastal, Mountain Khakis, Avex, RMU Skis, Bic SUP and my beautiful wife!
So so stoked to be back on snow! The mountain opened on Thanksgiving and I was lucky enough to be on the 1st gondola early up at 8:30. Nothing like standing on the top of Baldy with nobody there. The conditions were perfect cordaroy and untracked 8 inches of freshies. Perfect way to kick off the season and my first run. Give Thanks!
