"This year was not the best winter for most people in the Pacific Northwest. However, I was lucky enough and willing enough to have the time and energy to find the snow. My ski season started in early October, getting some turns up on Mt. Baker. This is always the most exciting time of year, waiting for the snow to really build up.

"March Skiing at its best! Part of my training as a mountain guide is backcountry skiing in the San Juan mountains of Colorado. After almost 7 weeks of blue skies and no new snow, the mountains finally received a week long snow storm that dropped 5 feet of snow on Red Mountain pass. Of course a big avalanche cycle followed but now the backcountry skiing is great again. Yeah!! For those long days...Read More
