World Telemark Day 2016

160109jjw-0224(1)
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.

Sunny Snowy SUP

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.

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!

Sun Valley Ski Ads 2015-16

I am super stoked for the mountain to open on Thanksgiving!  It has been great to see some early season snow and watch Baldy transform to winter.  Everything is in place for a great season!  Plus, I am super proud to be featured in Sun Valley Resorts winter ski ads.  This marks the 2nd winter I’ve been featured by Sun Valley (also 2010).  The ads have run in Freeskier, Skiing,Ski, The Skier’s Journal and others.  I am also on the 80th season brochure and trail map. The photo was taken by Jon Mancuso.  Be sure to check out Jon’s sweet site http://www.jonmancuso.com/

Paddling with Dad~Sawtooth Lakes

momdad

I have been thinking about my Dad a lot this summer.  Being in Bali and spending so much time on the water this summer has allowed me time to feel his presence.  He is always there looking after me.  I always loved telling him about my different adventures and he would just laugh and with his beaming smile.  Man, he sure loved to laugh.

My Dad had some great sayings…”talk is cheap”,  “you got to want it” and “finish strong”.  Dad would have been 79 this year.  In honour of his birthday I paddled the Sawtooth lakes.  I love you buddy.

Stanley Lake=2.4, Redfish Lake=9.7, Petit Lake=4.5, Alturus=4.7

Total 21.3 miles

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