THANK YOU Mom and Dad

Amongst the many things that I am grateful for that my parents did while raising my sister and I was teaching us to ski.

When I was two my Mom would hold me up between her leg, skis in full snow plow, feed me M&M's and steer me down the bunny slope. Despite my brief nap standing up on the slopes, I was hooked.

Now I can do things like float huge waves of powder and drop cliffs.

And I thank god my parents taught me to ski. (Though my mother would dismayed to think she contributed to me jumping off of anything.)

Snow Snorkel Training

I just got back from my snow snorkel training course in Park City, UT with Keith. It was an enriching experience filled with the deepest powder I've skied in quite some time.

Three days earlier and we would have been practicing our snow sun-tanning technique while "bro'ing" it up in the terrain park.

Now to settle into my P.A.D. or Post Awesomeness Depression.

The Best Hut Name

It really is the Friend's Hut. And there is no better place for it. Middle of somewhere.

Its just like friendship too. A long road that is always rewarding.

Exalted with @upslope and @mmlocal

Surrounded by clear still mountain air is the best kind of way to
spend a day. Touring with Ben Mustin, Owner of MM Local, produced a
mighty fine day.

The best way to finish a day like that is with some Upslope IPA. Made
from snow, for after snow skiing. Best consumed cold. Can also be
consumed in the shower for extra enjoyment.
