OR Show - Day 2 Highlights
January 23rd, 2008 A few highlights from the Outdoor Retailer show floor. We liked these. Flipgripz A trip over to Zeal yielded their lightweight frameless sunglasses. Euro style? This water bottle from Hydrapak is innovative. You load the smaller cartridge with athletic gel, then depending on how you open the top with your teeth you have your choice of gel or water. Shred Alert has revamped their hat line. Some are designed by pro athletes. This one is a Nick Devore creation. I thought Nick might get a laugh out of me modeling it. Nick? What do you think? We did a quick visit to Garmont for a glance at their new overlap cuff beef boots. Our take after we meet with Garmont tomorrow. Are we in Vegas or Utah? You be the judge. Posted in Misc Gear Reviews
January 23rd, 2008 Posted in Trip Reports
January 22nd, 2008 Thanks for our tour also goes to Snowbasin Mountain Patrol Manager, Mike Jenkins. He gave us a good overview on how the terrain in and out of the resort is utilized. It appeared to me that if you knew your way around, this would be another powder paradise. Some of the OB area was a bit too terrain trappy for my taste, with big vertical dropping into narrow brush-filled gullies. But options varied, and plenty of reasonable pitches were there for the taking as well. We started down this pitch, which can take you all the way to Ogden, the town visible WAY down there. Apparently they have to do rescues in here several times a year, people get tempted and end up caught in the canyon below. We were careful to not get too low, and still had to skin up and out after one set of turns.

Backcountry skiing
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search Backcountry skiing near the Arlberg Austria Backcountry skiing is skiing in a sparsely inhabited rural region over ungroomed and unmarked slopes or pistes . More importantly, the land and the snow pack are not monitored, patrolled, or maintained. Fixed mechanical means of ascent such as ski lifts are typically not present. Backcountry skiing can be highly dangerous due to the avalanche risk, the exhaustion from the possible climb, and the often steep terrain involved. Other hazards include cliff or rock hazards and tree wells . Backcountry skiing is often associated with " ski touring " and " ski mountaineering ", and sometimes also with " extreme skiing The terms "backcountry skiing", "ski touring", and "off-piste skiing" are often used interchangeably, but they are not identical in scope. "Backcountry skiing" is more commonly used in North America, while "ski touring" is more commonly used in Europe, but the distinctions are often ignored. "Off-piste" skiing can refer to any skiing a few metres away from marked trails and slopes, whereas "backcountry" skiing refers to skiing which is not near marked slopes at all, or cannot be accessed by ski-lifts. Backcountry skiing can also involve multi-day trips through snow camping or the use of mountain huts where available. Ski touring and ski mountaineering can take place in either front country or backcountry regions, so neither term overlaps backcountry skiing completely. Backcountry skiing and off-piste skiing are terms which specify where the skiing occurs, while ski touring, ski mountaineering, and extreme skiing are terms which describe what type of skiing is being done.

" In the end, to ski is to travel fast and free - free over untouched snow country. To be bound to one slope, even one mountain, by a lift may be convenient but it robs us of the greatest pleasure that skiing can give, that is to travel through the wide wintery country; to follow the lure of peaks which tempt on the horizon and to be alone for a few days or even hours in clear, mysterious surroundings"

Website News:

November 2007 usually means much-above-normal snowfall for the Cascades (see the page for more info and stats). The season commenced in early October with major snowfall in the mountains of BC, WA, and northern OR, providing excellent early-season backcountry conditions. Then the heavy snowfall shifted north towards Alaska for much of November, and as of late November, mountain snowpacks range from near-normal in SW BC, dropping to 50-80% of normal in WA and northern OR, and then plummeting to 0-30% of normal in southern OR and northern CA. I have finally resumed updating this website after a lengthy hiatus of over a year. Hopefully I can continue making regular updates.

Backcountry Skiing - Sierra and Colorado Rockies
Skiing toward Bear Creek Spire, Rock Creek Basin, Sierra Nevada. Photo by Richard Steele Introduction
This program encompasses the skills of intermediate and advanced backcountry skiing, backcountry touring, winter camping, and avalanche hazard evaluation, and it includes some of the finest ski touring found in North America. Courses are offered for telemarking and randonnée gear, with an emphasis on alpine touring technique.The program is designed to advance each participant's skiing ability as well as to develop the skills required for travel in the cold temperatures, complex terrain, and varied snow conditions of the winter environment. While this course is very much oriented towards wilderness skiing, many of the skills presented will also help prepare participants for the conditions found in the highest mountain ranges of the world. This course can thus provide excellent background both for those who want to concentrate on adventurous, backcountry ski touring and ski mountaineering, and for those who would like to move on to alpine or expeditionary climbing. This program does not include climbing skills, but when it is combined with one of AAI's summer alpine mountaineering or ice climbing courses on glacier ice, it provides excellent preparation for climbing in such areas as Alaska and the Yukon where approaches are usually made on skis.

iskibc backcountry snow adventures Read on Steamboat backcountry, January 2008: Click on images to view enlarged size This has become the winter of deep powder tree skiing. The snowpack and weather this season has been very tricky, making it tough to get up high and tackle the high peaks and lines here in Colorado. Instead, most of the focus has been on skiing lots of yo-yo style deep powder stashes across the northern part of the state. The storm systems have been consistent, freshening things up every few days and cleaning the slate for untracked day after untracked day.

Waiting for the Rope to Drop in Mineral Basin - Snowbird, Utah
Author: Jason Mitchell Add a Comment I had skied Mineral Basin only once before and it was the winter it opened. I was treated to 1500 feet of sun-crusted bumpsnot my ideal run. Over the years I've realized that yes, I can ski moguls, but just because I can ski moguls doesn't mean I like skiing them. I'm a powder junkie and if I'm not skiing powder, I dig arcing big turns on the groomers. But, those bumps had one thing going for thema variable, but relatively consistent fall-line and a perfect pitch that wasn't too steep nor too shallow. Hmmm... those are the same ingredients that make for excellent hills on powder days. Sounds like pretty much the entire mountain at Steamboat, Colorado or Grand Targhee, Wyoming. Those hills are famous for perfectly-pitched champagne powder runs. Mineral Basin is like a mini Grand ... continue reading...

Black Diamond Covert Pack with AvaLung Review
Author: Jason Mitchell 2 Comments The life-saving Black Diamond AvaLung has been on the market for a few years now. This technology sucks the oxygen out of the micro air pockets within the snowpack and allows you to breathe while completely submerged for 60 minutes or longer. The AvaLung system doesn't keep you out of avalanches... that's what your brain is for, it's built to keep you alive longer. Given that most avalanche victims suffocate before they are found, the AvaLung system is a must-have item for anyone traveling in the backcountry. The survival rate of a full-burial dramatically decreases after 15 minutes. Without an AvaLung, if you are alive, but not found in 15 minutes, your chances of survival become next to nothing very quickly. However, with an AvaLung, you can safely breathe for 60 minutes or more because of the ingenious ...

Berthoud Pass, Colorado
Awesome backcountry skiing and boarding
Berthoud Pass ski area is now closed. The lifts have been removed and the base lodge is being removed. What is left are fantastic runs for the backcountry enthusiasts. Berthoud Pass ski area opened in 1937 and held a a reputation for premiere backcountry skiing and snowboarding. The area offers an experience that is comparable to snowcat and helicopter skiing. Half of the ski area was designated as advanced or expert. More than 65 trails on 1,200 acres of terrain. Some runs can be done right off of the pass, but most runs require some hiking up the mountain. Many runs end up below the pass requiring a vehicle shuttle back to the pass. Warning!!!
