Be kind to me, it’s my first try at this.

We had some awesome avalanche training this weekend with Playwest! Chris is an amazing guy and a great teacher. MTN Impact highly recommends doing your AST 1 with them.

Good Pics: Check out the pop of purple in the foreground of #5. The cyclone forming over the mountains in #2 is very cool…not photoshopped, hopefully. (3 min Read)

Coffee Break Video: We are Jeep people, but this Bronco video is so well done, I may have to switch (not really 😉 ) (1 min watch) 🐐 🐐 🐐 🐴

Waste Less: You can rent this eco and MTN bike-friendly cabin now on Airbnb. Availability in April for $331 per night (2 min read)

How To: Backcountry Snowboarding…apparently with your dog ⇩ Though probably not with our french bulldog…she is too ‘big-boned’ for her short legs and wouldn’t make it through the deep snow (5 min read)

I see avalanche hazards everywhere now…damn you, Chris!
