International Man of Mystery...

My photo
I grew up in the Boston area and lived there until my junior year in high school when I attended the Mountain School, a semester program run by Milton Academy in Vershire, VT. I then attended Colby College in Waterville, ME. During my time at Colby I studied anthropology, spent a semester in Northeast India, and became fluent in Nepali. Before I became a guide I earned my black belt in kenpo karate and taught karate for 6 years. I began guiding in college on the rocky coast of ME with Acadia Mountain Guides and on ice at the International Mountain Climbing School in NH. After graduating I took to the highway and drove from ME to WA for the big mountains and glaciers. I spend my winters in lovely Ouray, CO guiding in the famous ice park. I am currently working towards becoming a certified guide through the American Mountain Guides Association. I live, work and play in the hills and on the rocks. On the rocks both literally and, well, with ice.

San Juan Powder

It snowed 8" the other day and there is 2-4 FEET on the way! Those 8 inches refreshed the snow pack and filled in some thin spots up on Red Mountain pass between Silverton and Ouray, CO. So Hannah and I grabbed our skis and headed for Commodore Basin. We skinned up the ridge and skied the first gully that looked good. We skied the powder gully into an open bowl which led to some fun rolling glades.

Fresh San Juan powder, mountain terrain, and glade shots. I would say it doesn't get better than that but with the current forecast, it just might!
