What an insane week to kick off the next few months of being “degenerate dirtbags” as our friend Jonny aptly called it. Continue reading Narita to Hakuba
“We should just quit our jobs and go travel….”
When I casually said this to my husband Anthony, he almost fell out of his chair. Little did we both know that this one statement would change the course of our lives over the next year. With a little bit of penny pinching, we realized we just might be able to pull this off!

The 2015-2016 ski season started off with a bang! Eric and I made plans to meet at 7am Tuesday morning and head up to Berthoud Pass. However after stepping outside, I quickly realized that clearing snow off my truck & driveway was going to take longer than I originally anticipated. Continue reading Berthoud Pass 12/15/2015
Becca and I loaded up my truck on Friday the 13th and hit the road north to Jackson, WY to visit our buddy Aaron and get on some bigger lines to prepare for a trip later this spring. Big mountains with lots of vert to climb/ride make the Tetons the perfect training ground for bigger trips. Continue reading South Teton, GTNP – February 2015
After two weeks of high pressure, Eric Thomson and I decided it was time for our first big line of the year. Rocky Mountain National Park hadn’t seen any significant storms in weeks and down in Boulder it felt like early Spring. The previous weekend we were mountain biking in 70 degree weather.

Check out this extended edit that Alex put together. More powder, more face shots, and more of Buster!
I’ll admit it. I’ve finally caved in and have seen the light. These new GoPro’s are pretty awesome. The video quality that comes out of these tiny cameras is amazing, and yet they’re very simple to use! I’m definitely looking forward to getting some fish/biking shots with it in the summer.
This period of high avalanche danger is just making me want to fish. So lately, I’ve been spending a few nights a week tying up some stuff for the summer. I’ve been tying my go-to #18-22 nymphs to stock up my box, while tying some occasional dries to work on some technique. Continue reading Fly Tying
After spending Christmas with Becca’s family, we headed up to Jackson, WY to visit our friend Aaron and ring in the New Year. It was a great way to end the year and 2014 should be even better!

“Good to Go!”, your friend says as he checks your avalanche beacon. A high-five sends you down the trail on your first tour of the season. Continue reading The Return of Winter
