Flip open a ski magazine, any ski magazine, from the last 10 years, and you’re likely to find a photo shot by Salt Lake City-based photographer Adam Clark. He’s traveled the globe with some of the world’s top athletes and shot dozens of iconic frames in the process. But Clark may never have gotten the chance to be a photographer if not for a couple of Florida dentists that gave him a camera back in high school. Since then, the road hasn’t been easy, but Adam hasn’t taken a moment of it for granted. Watch all of episode 2 of Westward below.

Westward, a web series supported by SCARPA, Flylow, Rocky Mountain Underground, and Oskar Blues Brewery, returns for another season of exploration into the lives and choices of some of skiing’s most interesting characters, Andrew Mclean, Jonah Howell, Adam Clark, and Louise Sanseau. Each has a unique story to tell about the passion and sacrifice needed to make a life in the mountains. Each will inspire you to fight for what you love and to not take a single day for granted, especially if that day involves deep snow, steep mountains, and good friends. Episodes drop all fall. Stay tuned for more.

“Westward” A New Web Series About Making A Life In The Mountains.

Oct. 7th 2015

Making a life in the mountains takes grit, determination, creativity, and a willingness to forge your own path. Produced by KGB Productions and supported by SCARPA, Flylow, and Rocky Mountain Underground, “Westward” is a new web series about skiers that have eschewed the traditional path of a stable job and a mortgage in a big city someplace in favor of Wyoming’s Teton Range.

The Laws of Physics: Chris Davenport is a Body in Motion

Oct. 3rd 2013

A body in motion stays in motion. At least it does if you’re Chris Davenport. The SCARPA athlete is currently on the road keeping up with the professional side of being a career skier. Meetings, appearances, hob-knobbing with politicians, and juggling family responsibilities—it’s not all about clicking into his skis. There’s actual work, of which he’s been doing a lot. From the terminal he was able to squeak in some time to update us of his latest exploits and plans for the coming winter.

Video Report: U.S. Ski Mountaineering Championships in Jackson Hole

Jan. 12th 2011

What is it about skiing…

What is it about skiing that drives us waaaay beyond that which would normally qualify as Best Practice, and what conventional wisdom would call reasonable.

We could all just rock comfy Bogner one-pieces while stem christie-ing perfect corduroy and act, like, civilized. But, no. That would be far too easy. Skiing’s siren song dares us to enter into some of the most dangerous environments and unreasonable situations imaginable…in skin suits. And we accept, willingly. In fact, we pay money for it.

World Cup Telemark Racing with U.S. Team’s Knee-Dropping Diva, Lorin Paley

Jan. 5th 2011

Lorin Paley is fast out of the gate. The former Alpine ski racer turned Telemarker, Paley found the love of drop-knee glory when a former alpine skiing race coach recommended Telemark for her cross training. She never looked back.

The SCARPA-sponsored athlete began racing in the World Cup in 07-08, and has since has become the most decorated woman in Telemark racing. In addition to winning two junior World Cup Golds and a Silver, she’s claimed two silver and two bronze on the World Cup circuit, and has her eyes set on the gold. Did we mention she’s only eighteen?
