Or perhaps I should say, HOLY POO! Today as we were skinning towards Whimpy’s knob and Albright, I saw a very big turd next to the skin track. It was obviously from a carnivore, the turd was full of hairs and had the very distinct pointy end that only carnivore-shit has. AND, since I was … Continue reading Holy crap!
After a day with very high avi risk, we hoped that Santa would bring us more stable conditions on Christmas day. We woke up to a clear and cold day, with a bit lower, but still considerable avalanche risk. Since we had skied Whimpy’s knob in February, and knew that the run was pretty mellow, … Continue reading All light on Albright – Getting summit fever, and having the guts to turn around.

Fat Assed Fred doesn’t like change at all (direction, speed, what have you), but he is very good at drifting sideways on slick … Continue reading On the road

I got to spit my lungs out, shout whiii!, get 2 flat tires within 5 minutes, and almost see mountain lion poo together with my … Continue reading Going out with a bang
I really don’t know what I did to deserve this, but I’m damn happy I did it. A week ago, I was going mental, I do that sometimes when I don’t look beyond my own nose. All I could think about was that people in Sweden were riding their bikes, and I was not. I … Continue reading Am I allowed to be this happy?
