Mt. Hunt spring ski tour trip report in Grand Teton National Park

Jun. 2nd 2011

Changing gears from one season to the next is a part of mountain town living. Weather and conditions dictate how we embrace the outdoors. The late winter mud season is usually a pickle, as Mother Nature tends to be a two-faced bitch and it affects everyone. Folks around town moan about the continued snowfall and inclement weather that continues to persist, and they’re sick of wearing wools hats, long johns and getting shut down by her mercurial mood swings. Everyone gets cranky. On some levels I agree. Grey mornings, sloppy snow showers and dirty streets leave little to be desired after a long winter. Hangovers don’t help either.

Kootenay Coldsmoke Powder Fest on the horizon

Jan. 17th 2011

The Kootenay Coldsmoke Powder Fest–Nelson, B.C.’s annual celebration of backcountry ski culture–takes place February 25-28 at the Whitewater Ski Resort outside of Nelson. The three day festival is packed with every excuse to get on snow, including skill clinics, competitions, and ski celebrations. And it’s all done in true Nelson style, which is to say that fun in and on the mountains is at the heart of everything.

Speaking of fun, backcountry skiing and Nelson…as part of SCARPA’s Coldsmoke sponsorship, we’re hosting the SCARPA Poker Run on Sunday the 28th.
