Always a good time when I SUP with Nesta and Ray Gadd!  Stoked to be featured in the new Visit Sun Valley Ad campaign.  This image was taken by Ray Gadd at Silver Creek.  Great way to start off the season.  Look for some Idaho SUP adventures coming soon!

Still great skiing on Galena summit.  I enjoyed some great corn skiing on Mushroom Ridge.

2015 SUP season is here!

Opening day of sup season!  It was so great to get back on the water.  The Mighty Big Wood River is across the street from my house. It is fun to do the neighbourhood run.  I did get some funny looks running shuttle on my cruiser.

Enjoy this edit.

It finally snowed after going two month with any new snow.  Give thanks Ullr for the 4 inches of fresh. I love telemark skiing!

High Pressure Blues II

No heli, no pow just making the most out the 2015 ski season. Still blessed to make turns everyday. Even when the snow is thin and temps in the 50′s its great to make telemark turns.
