Last winter, I traveled to Utah's Tushar Mountains on assignment for Backcountry Magazine. Away from the crowds of the Wasatch our crew explored The Snorkeling Elk and Puffer Lake Yurts, and weathered a huge storm to hit Southern Utah. Here’s a video from the trip, and to read the story in full, grab a copy of the issue, here.
Powder skiing is good for the soul. While it haunts skiers' dreams as we swelter in the heat awaiting autumn's first frost, the notion of powder days make every 100 degree day tolerable. This season, I only took out the GoPro a handful of days and had some fun days filming with friends. The edit is called Soul Pow, because that's what I shot, fun powder skiing that's good for your soul...
Spring in the Wasatch was a constant fight between winter and summer. Late April storms growing the snowpack and sporadic bursts of snow into May helped prolong the dry heat that has already begun. While it's time for summer floats and backpacking excursions into the mountains, the last few weeks of May helped bridge the crave for cold powder until October. Here's a short piece I wrote for Powder regarding this cycle called Green Tomatoes.
Just a few days after the story went live, we were treated to one more storm. Thanks winter, we'll see you next year!
Last winter, my wife and I were lucky to travel to the Apennine Mountains of Abruzzo, Italy to document the culture and skiing. It's an amazing location, filled with great skiing and simple people. Here is my story from the trip as appeared on Powder.com
