Summer of SUP~Lake Erie Sunset SUP

1470879974140

Last month, I was visiting family in Ohio and was lucky enough to get a sweet sunset sup session with my nephew Jack. It was really fun teaching him proper paddle technique and sup safety.   Living in the mountains I miss the full horizon sunsets. Special thanks to Vito at West River Water sports for the Bic SUP’s.  Enjoy these images from Vermilion, Ohio.

World Telemark Day 2016

I am proud to be a freeheel skier.  I love the feeling I get when I drop into a telemark turn.  There is nothing like carving and surfing down the blank canvas.  Todays equipment has come along way from the my old leather days.  Enjoy the latest episode of Ida-pow4.

RMU~The Professors…Pow slaying skis

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!
