Opening Day at Sun Valley

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!

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/

The SUP white water season kicks off with the spring run off.  This time of year allows one to sup the Big Wood River.  The Big Wood River is a really beautiful river that not many people get to float.  Generally, the river is way too shallow except the spring to early June.  It has been describes as Class 2+ with class 5 consequences due to the lack of eddies to pull over and the amount of wood.  I have a nice route from West Ketchum to the Greenhorn Bridge.  This is a fun 9 mile paddle.

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.

Ski season is here!  Feels so good to get my Scarpa’s back on and start skinning.  Last weeks storm and all the snow making at scum valley gave you enough snow to ski the ribbon of death. Man, it was fun making some telemark turns!  Total shit snow but it felt great to sweet and spend some time walking up the mountain.  Nesta and I even made the front page of Idaho Mountain Express.
