Skiing Patagonia After A 4-Foot Storm

With ski travel, sometimes you score, some times you just get skunked.  It's just part of the reality in snow chasing adventures.  Last week was one of those golden weeks chasing snow in Patagonia, Argentina.  We scored and scored big.  We arrived right after the 4 foot dump at Catedral in Bariloche and surrounding areas.  The skies exploded blue and we had a week of powder and corn skiing not soon to be forgotten.

What it Takes to Be the Fastest Ski Gang in Aspen

What it Takes to Be the Fastest Ski Gang in Aspen

What started as a few 10-year old Aspen ski racers toying around and causing no good in their little ski gang deemed ‘The Stallions,’ would later evolve into a 15-member crew of ripping skiers. The group's name would change to something more representative of their ideals, a name set in place to pay homage to the late Hunter S.

Revisiting Bill Briggs’ First Descent of the Grand and His Enduring Legacy

“Duck!” my partner, Ben, told me as he tightened the rope that connected us. I buried my head into my chest as a waterfall of heavy, cold snow cascaded around me. It collected everywhere there was space: in between my sunglasses, down my jacket, and in my helmet.  "Is this what a river rock feels like as water flows undisturbed by its presence?” I thought to myself as I waited for it to end.My existence on this wall of ice on the final pitch of the Chevy Couloir on the Grand Teton was
