    This was my seventh trip to the Wrangells and more than anything, it confirmed my suspicions from the previous six outings that this place is indeed the greatest skiing on earth. Of course the greatest skiing is all relative, but to me this means the area with the most terrain, most options, best views, best chances of finding good snow and the fewest number of people. The area is the size of Switzerland and for the first week of April we were sharing it with maybe 100 other people, although we never saw any other ski tracks aside from our own. It’s impossible to put this this place…

    7 Apr 2015 | 2:13 pm
    The Petzl RAD System (Rescue and Descent) is designed for skiers to rapidly perform crevasse rescue, rappelling or roping up to travel in glaciated terrain. The system consists of three tried & true Petzl devices; a Micro Traxion Hauling Pulley, a Tibloc and screwgate carabiners, and also adds a 6mm x 30m RAD Line, which forms the heart of the system.  I couldn’t find any information on the RAD Line, but it appears to be some sort of thin static line with a nice tie-able sheath on it.

  • Tiny Packs -

    The Law of Luggage states: “The amount of stuff you carry will expand to fit whatever size backpack you have.” For this reason and a few others, I use a tiny little 15 liter pack for backcountry skiing in the Wasatch. Between racing packs and mechanized skiing packs, there are quite a few small packs on the market today. The mechanized skiing packs are meant for chairlifts, heliskiing or cat skiing, but for fruffy places like the Wasatch where it doesn’t get that cold and you are never far from the road or help, they make great backcountry packs as well.  I’ve been…

    I know… the title has the phrase “Mountain Accord” in it, but WAKE UP!  A major milestone has been reached, and if you enjoy the Wasatch Mountains, now is the time to speak up for the future of them.  After a year of negotiations with 21 stakeholders, the current Mountain Accord (MA) process is ready for public comment and there are quite a few issues which directly affect backcountry users and skiers. Overall, I personally think it is a good start with one major exception – Alta still has Grizzly Gulch down as “under consideration” which to me is a total…

    This was copied from SwissMountainLeader This is a bit out of date now but I’m catching up with older photo’s. This is from a snowshoe day in the valley of the Arnensee. I’ve never take people there before but I ski tour there quite a bit, I’d thought going to the lake and back might be too far and not be too interesting as it’s a linear route. But, skiing down a few days before I got caught on some rolling terrain on my descent which wasn’t ideal at the time but I filed it away mentally as being great for snowshoeing. The real headline of the day was the…

I’d climbed up a different route than the one I’ve taken before, in the past I’ve gone up the valley and over the dam but this time I took a more direct line which was quite good. I varied the descent as well passing below Hindere Walig which was pretty good in places but overall not as good as skiing a more…

    Although St Christoph may not be the biggest resort in Europe however, it does have some incredible history behind how the resort began.

Sankt Christoph first came to rise in 1386 when a young shepherd, Heinrich Findelkind von Kempten gave up all of his savings to build a hospice shelter for the people making the dangerous…
