Epic Skiing in the Wasatch Backcountry

Yesterday my friends Terry and Will invited me to do a sizable tour in the Wasatch backcountry. They were planning on skiing from Alta in Little Cottonwood Canyon to a campground just off the road in neighboring Big Cottonwood Canyon. They wanted to shuttle a car up Big Cottonwood and then drive over to Alta in another car. Sounds like a great idea to me.
We met at the mouth of Big Cottonwood at 8am…

Escaping the Sundance Film Festival and Backcountry Skiing in the Wasatch

With the arrival of the Sundance Film Festival to Park City, I decided to get away from the chaos and escape to the Wasatch backcountry with my friend Ben. The weather was warm, but it had been a little while since the last snow, making for very stable backcountry avalanche conditions. Just a few weeks earlier the backcountry had been so dangerous no one was venturing out, but time and warm temps do seem to…

A Tribute to Following the Dream

What does it mean to live? To really be alive? To experience the feeling of an incomparable moment and give up everything you have to seek more of that same feeling? Is living following your heart? Your passion? Is living giving up everything in the world to pursue what you love? To me, living is skiing. Living is being able to find those few singular moments while all is white in the mountains.

First Powder Day of the Year at Alta Ski Resort

In the past 48 hours, Little Cottonwood Canyon has been pummeled by over 36 inches of snow. Not just any snow, but the first big storm of the year, that brought the light and deep Utah powder that this state is famous for. Just over a week ago, Snowbird and Alta barely had any snow, as you can see in our blog from Snowbird below. By this morning Alta had more snow that they knew…

I Am Lucky To Be Alive – A Snowbird Cautionary Tale

My ribs have been hurting me lately, so I thought I would share the worst day of skiing I’ve ever had in my life. What you are about to read took place on April 9th, 2008 at Snowbird, a little over 6 months ago.
Wednesday the 9th was just another epic April powder day at The Bird…until I crushed a tree at over 30mph. I was stoked that morning because the last two days had…
